For those thinking about taking the plunge and trying AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil for the first time, you may have questions. You may even have reservations about trying a synthetic oil in your bike. We have put together a collection of commonly asked questions about motorcycle oil.
Some of the questions include:
What are the benefits of synthetic motorcycle oil?
Are there any downsides to using synthetics in your bike?
Is synthetic oil wet-clutch compatible?
Do I need to use an AMSOIL Oil Filter with your oil?
Are you loading up the vehicle and breaking out the toys for a few weeks of vacation this summer?
While the heat of the summer isn’t the best time for preventative maintenance, sometimes you just don’t have the choice. You can use AMSOIL products to extend your oil change interval to twice a year or less and plan to do the work in the spring/fall to avoid the unbearable heat and cold of the seasons.
This year we’ve pushed our holiday back to December which means I’m available all summer and fall. The weekends are packed this August and early September doing road trips around southern ontario for fishing, weddings, BBQ’s and more. Which means I’m probably not available on weekends by phone to talk about AMSOIL orders – leave a message and expect a returned call late Sunday night or Monday evening.
The best way to contact me is by email and I’m still scheduling my regular Thursday trips to pickup local customer orders throughout the summer. Continue reading Dog Days of Summer
Still trying to figure out what to get Dad for Father’s Day this year?
If he is interested in vehicles, lawn and garden equipment, powersports like motorcycles, ATV’s, dirt bikes, boats or other motorized equipment he may appreciate an AMSOIL Preferred Customer membership as a gift this year.
Simply add either the 1 year membership ($30 CAD) or the 6 month trial membership ($15 CAD) and checkout from the online store. When you create a new user account use your Dad’s personal information – but not his email address. Use your own, he’ll be able to change the email address later so you don’t ruin the surprise.
For those who wait until the last minute you can sign up through the AMSOIL online store right up until the very last second. You can also order a membership over the phone during business hours on week days at 1-800-777-7094. Renewing a membership is best done over the phone.
Did you miss the sale of Castrol Syntec at Costco last week? $9 off is an ok deal on 6 quarts of “synthetic” oil but there is no need to wait for Costco to put Castrol on sale for a quality oil change at an excellent price.
AMSOIL Original Equipment is available any time you need it at wholesale pricing for 0W-20, 5W-20, 5W-30 or 10W-30. If you live near one of the Canadian distribution centres in the GTA or Edmonton areas you can eliminate minimal shipping charges by picking up your order directly at the distribution centre.
Your $30/year membership fee gives you access and wholesale pricing to top quality AMSOIL synthetic oils, oil and air filters – including partners like Wix, Mann and NGK.
Its 0W viscosity rating and ultra-low -60°F pour point offer maximum cold-weather protection, ensuring easy cranking, excellent cold starts on frigid winter mornings and quick post-startup protection. It also provides superior wear protection due to high levels of anti-wear additives that protect pistons and bearings, while its SAE 40 viscosity delivers a strong lubricating film for excellent protection in hard-working engines.
An issue affecting many hard-charging sleds is oil foaming. When engines reach high RPMs, churning engine parts can cause the oil to foam, inhibiting the oil’s lubricating ability, increasing heat and wear. AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Synthetic Motor Oil inhibits foam for maximum performance and protection.
Ideal for your four-stroke sled, this product also provides superior protection for ATV’s, UTV’s and other powersports applications.

I’m going on vacation to Europe for 3 weeks. Really looking forward to getting away this fall.
We’re stopping off in Munich, Germany to see Oktoberfest first hand and then making our way on to Italy for 2.5 weeks to do a bit of hiking and lots of eating!
The last day to place an order for in-person pickup is Tuesday September 13. I’ll be back October 10th and will start taking personal orders again.
If you spend more than $100/year on AMSOIL products you should experiment with adding a Preferred Customer membership to your cart once you’ve added your products. The online application automatically discounts the products with a PC membership in the cart and if you remove it the pricing goes back to suggested retail.
