New Dirt Bike Transmission Fluid Expands Market

New AMSOIL Synthetic Dirt Bike Transmission Fluid (DBTF) is designed for riders who prefer a dedicated transmission fluid instead of a multi-purpose motor oil.

Last year, in response to market demand, we introduced AMSOIL Synthetic Dirt Bike Oil (DB40, DB50, DB60). It is fine-tuned for confident clutch feel and outstanding wear protection – benefits riders demand.

While Synthetic Dirt Bike Oil delivers excellent performance, some riders, particularly owners of dirt bikes that use a separate sump for the transmission fluid, prefer a dedicated transmission fluid instead of a multi-purpose motor oil. New AMSOIL Synthetic Dirt Bike Transmission Fluid (DBTF) fulfills this need, helping you reach more customers and grow sales.

WINTER SEASON MEANS SNOWMOBILES IN ACTION

I have had questions concerning the use of AMSOIL lubricants for snowmobiles and specifically Ski Doo Snowmobiles of which I have owned TWO while living in Duluth, Minn from 1969 – 1973. 

NO you don’t use Transmission Oils in a Ski Doo Transmission Case.  The transmission used in snowmobiles is a CVT which is dry. It uses a belt and two clutches to take care of the shifting. Most snowmobiles use a chain case (chain and gears) to transmit power from the CVT to the driveshaft. This chain case is lubricated by its own oil. In the case of the Skidoos, AMSOIL’s TCC (Synthetic Chain Case Lubricant) can be used to lube the chain case or the SVO (75W – 140 Severe Gear Lubricant) which is a closer match to the Skidoo chain case fluid but is WAY overkill for that application.  

Further information on proper engine oils to use for Snowmobiles would be AMSOIL’s AIT (Interceptor Synthetic 2-cycle Oil) in the SkiDoo 2 strokes such as the 600 and 800 E-TEC.  In 4 stroke sleds and Can Am ATVs, AMSOIL recommends the AFF (SAW 0w-40 Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Motor Oil).

4-Fl. OZ. Tube
4-Fl. OZ. Tubes (Case of 12)

Clings Tenaciously to Parts
Because building an engine can take from a few days to many months, using an engine assembly lube that clings well to parts for extended periods is critical. AMSOIL Engine Assembly Lube is formulated with a high-viscosity base oil and a unique tackifier for long-lasting, tenacious cling.

Exceptional Wear Protection
During initial startup, engines operate momentarily with little-to-no oil pressure, placing camshaft lobes, lifters, rocker arms, bearings and other critical parts at high risk of wear and failure. In addition to inhibiting wear by clinging to parts, AMSOIL Engine Assembly Lube contains high levels of antiwear additives for further protection.

Inhibits Rust and Corrosion
An engine can sit in a garage partially assembled for long periods, allowing moisture and oxygen to form rust on exposed metal surfaces. AMSOIL Assembly Lube contains rust and corrosion inhibitors that protect engine components during inactivity.

Dissolves in Oil
Grease-based assembly lubes can increase the risk of oil port clogging if the grease is not fully consumed at initial startup, potentially causing engine failure. AMSOIL Engine Assembly Lube is designed to dissolve in oil, helping oil ports remain clean, and helping to eliminate deposit formation under the valve covers and in the oil pan.

Easy and Precise Application
AMSOIL Assembly Lube is packaged in convenient 4-oz. tubes, allowing for cleaner, more precise application compared to other products.

APPLICATIONS
AMSOIL Engine Assembly Lube is recommended for any new or rebuilt four-stroke engine, including racing and performance engines, and should be applied to all areas of the engine susceptible to initial startup wear.

  1. •Tenaciously Clings to Parts
  2. •High in Anti-Wear Additives
  3. •Dissolves in Oil

AMSOIL Synthetic Chain Case & Gear Oil

SAE 10W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil (MCF)

Synthetic Chain Case Oil (TCC)Long-Lasting Performance for ATVs and Snowmobiles

AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil provides superior protection and performance for enclosed chains and gears found in snowmobiles, ATVs and general equipment. Formulated with extreme-pressure additives, it helps extend chain and gear life through increased wear protection. AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil repels water, while also inhibiting rust, oxidation and foam. Its low pour point ensures superior low-temperature starting, reducing drag to deliver maximum power.

 
Designed Specifically for Chaincases & Gearcases
To reduce initial costs, some enthusiasts use automatic transmission fluid or gear lube in their snowmobile and ATV chaincases and gearcases. Neither fluid, however, is engineered for these applications. Automatic transmission fluid is a hydraulic fluid formulated without the extreme-pressure additives needed to provide enhanced wear protection, leaving gears and chains vulnerable to premature failure. Automotive gear lube is designed to lubricate hypoid gears and is too thick for proper chain and gear lubrication in powersports applications, impairing circulation and leading to wear and decreased energy efficiency.AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil is specifically engineered to meet the demands of enclosed chaincases and gearcases, providing extreme-pressure protection and low-temperature fluidity for superior performance and protection.

Long-Lasting Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil is a 100 percent synthetic formulation that resists shear and chemical breakdown better than conventional fluids. Its superior base oils and additives provide long-lasting protection.

Extendable Spout for Easy Application
Chaincase and gearcase fill holes can be difficult to access, especially on snowmobiles. each bottle of AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & gear Oil comes packaged with an extendable spout to provide easy, clean application. Prior to use, fully extend the spout, thread onto bottle and remove stopper.

  • Extreme-pressure additives promote long chain and gear life
  • Inhibits rust and oxidation
  • Low-temperature fluidity ensures maximum energy efficiency
  • Lasts longer than conventional oils
  • Recommended for Arctic Cat® Diamond Drive gearcases

AMSOIL QUICKSHOT SE AWARDED BEST NEW POWERSPORTS PRODUCT BY SEMA JUDGES

AMSOIL Quickshot SE Fuel Additive ( http://bit.ly/cryRRN) has been granted the Best New Powersports Product award for 2011 at the SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  This year, over 2,000 new products were submitted for consideration of this distinctive honor in various categories. In determining the winners, judges looked for superiority of innovation, technical achievement, quality, consumer appeal and marketability.

AMSOIL Quickshot SE is a premium fuel additive formulated to clean and restore optimal performance in small engine and powersports equipment fuel systems. It acts as a fuel stabilizer between uses and short-term storage and helps prevent damaging corrosion.  Its revolutionary formulation focuses on three major fuel-related issues common in small engine equipment: ethanol, water and dirty gasoline.

AMSOIL Quickshot SE is designed to keep water dispersed throughout the fuel tank, moving it out and decreasing the chance of ethanol separating from the gasoline. Moisture finding its way into gas tanks through condensation is dispersed in tiny molecules and safely moved out of the tank through the combustion chamber.  The lack of additives in today’s gasoline can cause fuel system gumming and varnish, creating deposits on critical components. AMSOIL Quickshot SE cleans hard to remove deposits on pistons, spark plugs, injectors, carburetors and other combustion chamber parts to maintain peak operating power.

AMSOIL Quickshot SE is recommended for use in all two-and four-stroke gasoline powered engines including motorcycles, snowmobiles, personal watercraft,  boats, ATV’s, edgers, tillers, mowers, snow blowers, chain saws, generators and farm and construction equipment.

AMSOIL SYNTHETIC GEAR LUBE OUTPERFORMS VALVOLINE GEAR LUBE

Overview

AMSOIL submitted its 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube (FGR) and Valvoline 75W-90 Gear Lube to an independent laboratory for quality comparison tests. The gear lubes were tested according to ASTM testing procedures in several critical performance areas, including oxidation resistance, viscosity retention and cold temperature fluidity. Oxidation resistance was measured using the L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test, viscosity retention was measured using the KRL Shear Stability Test and cold temperature fluidity was measured using the Brookfield Viscosity Test. Additional load carrying, wear, extreme pressure and scoring protection tests were performed exclusively on AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube using the L-37 High Torque Axle Test and the L-42 High Speed Axle Test.

L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test

-Test Conditions

The L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test measures a lubricant’s rate of deterioration under severe oxidation conditions. A measured sample of test lubricant is placed in a special gear case with two spur gears and a copper catalyst strip. The gears are driven at 1,725 rpm at 163°C for a 50-hour duration, while air is bubbled through the sample.

Viscosity increase, deposits not soluble in pentane or toluene, carbon varnish and sludge deposits are measured upon test completion. Test specifications are listed below.

L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test Specifications

  API GL-5 API MT-1/SAE J-2360/MIL-PRF-2105E/Mack GO-J Mack GO-J+
Test Conditions 50 hours @ 163°C 50 hours @ 163°C 100 hours @ 163°C
% Viscosity Rise 100 Max 100 Max 100 Max
% Pentane Insolubles 3 Max 3 Max 3 Max
% Toluene Insolubles 2 Max 2 Max 2 Max
Carbon Varnish Rating Not Required 7.5 Min 7.5 Min
Sludge Rating Not Required 9.4 Min 9.4 Min

L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test Results

  AMSOIL Synthetic 75W-90 Valvoline 75W-90 Valvoline 75W-90
Test Conditions 100 hours @ 163°C 50 hours @ 163°C 100 hours @ 163°C
% Viscosity Rise 25.17 17.50 38.50
% Pentane Insolubles 0.20 0.87 1.17
% Toluene Insolubles 0.13 1.11 0.99
Carbon Varnish Rating 8.0 7.2 5.9
Sludge Rating 9.5 9.4 9.4

-Test Results

Because AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube is a premium lubricant designed for extended drain service, the test was allowed to continue for 100 straight hours, double the standard test length. The Valvoline 75W-90 was run at both the standard 50-hour test length and the double 100-hour test length. Test results indicate AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube outperformed Valvoline at both test lengths.

Even at double the standard test length, AMSOIL 75W-90 scored almost four times better than industry test specifications in the area of viscosity increase, while also greatly exceeding specifications in all areas of the test.

KRL Shear Stability Test

-Test Conditions

It is essential that high-quality gear lubes resist shear to ensure adequate oil film thickness and protection against friction and wear. The KRL Shear Stability Test is used to determine the mechanical shear stability of lubricants containing polymer. Mandatory under the SAE J-306 gear oil standard, the KRL Shear Stability Test makes use of a taper roller bearing in order to shear the test fluid and determine the permanent drop in viscosity caused by the mechanical stress under practical conditions. Under the specifications of SAE J- 306, the measured viscosity at 100°C (212°F) of an SAE 90 gear oil must exceed 13.5 cSt after 20 hours of testing.

-Test Results

AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube easily exceeded SAE J-306 specifications following the 20-hour test length and was allowed to continue for a total of 192 straight hours, almost 10 times longer than the standard test length. Even after this extended test, AMSOIL 75W-90 lost only 0.40 percent of its original viscosity, making it 99.6 percent shear stable.

Valvoline 75W-90 Gear Lube, on the other hand, failed the test during the initial 20-hour testing period, losing 14 percent of its original viscosity.

Bookfield Viscosity Test

-Test Conditions

The Brookfield Viscosity Test (ASTM 0-2983) is used to determine the internal fluid-friction of a lubricant during cold temperature operation. The lubricant sample is chilled in a -40°C (-40° F) air bath for 16 hours, and a Brookfield viscometer determines the torque required to shear the lubricant. The lower the cold temperature viscosity (measured in centipoise), the better the cold temperature protection. ASTM specifications dictate that 75W-90 gear oils measure less than 150,000 cP at test completion.

-Test Results

AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube easily passed the Brookfield Viscosity Test, measuring 88,000 cP at test completion, 42 percent less than test limits. The superior cold temperature properties of AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube ensure quicker oil flow, enhanced component protection and improved fuel efficiency.

Many conventional lubricants fail to pass the Brookfield Viscosity Test due to the paraffinic (wax) content in their base oils. Valvoline Gear Lube passed the test at 130,000 cP, only 13 percent lower than test limits.

1-37 High Torque Axle Test

-Test Conditions

The L-37 High Torque Axle Test is used to evaluate a gear lubricant’s load-carrying, wear and extreme pressure characteristics in hypoid gears operating under both high-speed/low-torque and low-speed/high-torque conditions. A Dana Model 60 hypoid gear axle is used with either coated or uncoated drive gear and pinion to drive two dynamometers from an eight-cylinder, 5.7-liter gasoline engine. With the axle filled with the test lubricant, the high-speed/low-torque test is performed for 100 minutes, with the gears visually assessed afterwards. Next, the low-speed/high-torque test is run for 24 hours, followed by a thorough inspection of the gears. Performance relative to API GL-5 and MIL-PRF-2105E specifications is assessed based on tooth surface rippling, ridging, pitting and wear, deposits and discoloration.

-Test Results

Testing on AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Oil was conducted using uncoated gear and pinion. The AMSOIL lubricant passed on all counts and showed little to no rippling, ridging, pitting or deposits, indicating that AMSOIL 75W-90 provides superior protection and performance under extreme pressure conditions.

L-42 High Speed Axle Test

-Test Conditions

The L-42 High Speed Axle Test evaluates the antiscoring characteristics of a gear lubricant operating under high-speed and shock-loading conditions. A Spicer Model 44-1 hypoid gear axle is driven by a 5.7 liter, V8 gasoline engine with a four-speed truck transmission and two high-inertia dynamometers and hard accelerated to 100 mph. The axle is periodically shock-loaded through a dynamometer to simulate high shock-loading conditions. The axle is accelerated through the gears to 1,050 r/min and decelerated to 530 r/min. This cycle is repeated five times, followed by 10 shock loadings. In order to meet API GL-5 and MIL-PRF-2105E gear oil specifications, scoring must be equal to or better than gears tested with a reference oil.

-Test Results

AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Oil easily passed the L-42 High Speed Axle Test, receiving a significantly better rating than the reference oil and leaving little to no scoring on the ring and pinion.

AMSOIL EXPANDS SIGNATURE SERIES LINE OF OILS

AMSOIL 0W-20 (ASM), 5W-30 (ASL) and 10W-30 (ATM) Synthetic Motor Oils join AMSOIL Signature Series 0W-30 to round out the new Signature Series line. Signature Series 0W-30 is now identified by product code AZO. Product code SSO is discontinued and still available while supplies last.

In addition to being reformulated to meet the latest API SN Resource Conserving and ILSAC GF-5 industry specifications, the new Signature Series line features all-new packaging and represents the very best motor oils AMSOIL has to offer, allowing motorists to take advantage of maximum extended drain intervals. In the interest of consistency and clarity within the Signature Series line, all four motor oils are recommended for drain intervals of up to 25,000 miles/one year, whichever comes first (15,000 miles/one year in severe service conditions).

With the recent introduction of OE Synthetic Motor Oil and the recent reformulation of XL Synthetic Motor Oil, Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil provides customers a choice between three distinct lines of high-quality synthetic motor oil. OE is an outstanding choice for installers and as an entry-level product for customers who want the benefits of a synthetic, but won’t pay a significantly higher price or aren’t yet ready to extend their drain intervals; XL is ideal for installers and customers interested in extra engine protection and the convenience of 10,000-mile/six-month drain intervals and Signature Series is targeted toward customers who want the absolute best protection and performance, while taking advantage of 25,000-mile/one-year drain intervals.

The new Signature Series line is replacing the previous formulations of the AMSOIL top-tier oils as inventories dictate; orders will be filled with the older formulations and packaging until inventory is depleted, which may occur at varying times for each viscosity. The new Signature Series 0W-30 (AZO) sells at a lower price than the previous Signature Series 0W-30 formulation (SSO). The former Signature Series 0W-30 formulation (SSO) is available while supplies last.
