AMSOIL offers a complete line-up of snowmobile oils and lubricants.
These products offer a performance and protection upgrade that will enhance your fun and protect your investment. Let’s take a closer a look at AMSOIL’s snowmobile products.
Interceptor is the benchmark for modern high-performance 2-stroke oils. This is the premium option for the very latest 2019 2-stroke engines from Ski-Doo, Polaris and Arctic Cat. Interceptor is also a great choice for older 2-stroke engines needing the best possible oil. Interceptor provides exceptional wear protection, clean power valves, low-smoke and a -56°C cold pour point. A reasonably priced replacement for Arctic Cat APV and C-TEC2, Polaris VES and VES-Extreme and Ski-Doo XPS Synthetic 2-Stroke Oils.
AMSOIL Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil is ideal for recreational, utility and older snow machines. A great choice for fan- or liquid-cooled engines. Also suitable for motors equipped with variable exhaust power valves. AMSOIL Injector Oil provides exceptional synthetic 2-stroke performance at a great price. This is a fantastic upgrade over mineral, semi-synthetic and many synthetic 2-stroke oils.
A “racing only” synthetic 2-stroke oil. For highly-modified, hot-running engines that are torn down frequently. Provides exceptional high-RPM, high-temp protection. Dominator is formulated to deliver maximum power output. For recreational snowmobiles, Interceptor is the better choice, regardless of hard the engine is pushed. Dominator Racing Oil does not contain adequate detergents for the power valves in “everyday” sleds.
A shear-stable 0W-40 motor oil for four-stroke snowmobile engines (including turbo models). The robust synthetic formula allows this 0W-40 to protect against extreme operating temperatures and heavy loads. The cold-pour-point of -51°C provides fast oil flow and improved start-ups.
This maintenance item is a no-brainer for almost any snowmobile. AMSOIL Chaincase Oil contains extreme-pressure additives to provide maximum protection. Pours down to -46°C for smooth cold weather performance. Prevents rust and corrosion during off-season. Ideal for most all brands of chaincases.
AMSOIL Water Resistant Grease resists washout from water, snow, ice and mud. Keeps vital suspension and chassis components lubricated under all conditions. Provides smooth performance in cold conditions. Protects against rust and corrosion.
Prevents ethanol damage in 2- or 4-stroke engines. Cleans injectors and carbs as well as spark plugs and combustion chambers. Stabilizes fuel to prevent gum and varnish formation. A smart, economical maintenance practice for every tank of gas.
Maximizes power and improves performance in all two-cycle and four-cycle gasoline engines. Increases octane up to 4 numbers. Reduces engine knock, improves ignition and engine response, helps fuel burn cleaner and inhibits corrosion. Recommended for off-road and racing use.
Recently a reader asked: I’ve been researching Amsoil motorcycle oil filters for my Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Harley-Davidson has oil filters that will stop particles down to 5 microns, while AMSOIL motorcycle filters only stop particles down to 20 microns. I thought that AMSOIL oil filters were supposed to be one of the better filters out there? Why are Harley filters so much better?
Our answer: The oil filter micron ratings provided by both AMSOIL and Harley-Davidson “Super Premium5” oil filters is like comparing apples to oranges. Each company is measuring their micron ratings on completely different scales. Therefore, the micron numbers are not at all comparable.
AMSOIL offers their motorcycle oil filter ratings on an “absolute” scale. Based on this measurement, their motorcycle oil filters are 98.7% efficient at stopping particles that are 20 microns in size or larger. This is a considered to be a very strong efficiency rating.
For reference, a decent automotive oil filter would stop 98.7% of particles 30 microns or larger.
Harley-Davidson provides their micron numbers on an “nominal” scale. Their nominal claim of “5-microns” with their “Super Premium5” oil filter is not telling the whole story. Filters makers claiming ultra-low nominal micron ratings aren’t mentioning the “efficiency”.
Let’s be clear. Harley-Davidson Oil Filters are definitely not removing 100% of particles down to 5-microns. This would make the oil filter so restrictive that it would go into by-pass mode every single time you rolled onto the throttle. Under most all riding conditions, that would be like having no oil filter.
What is the Difference Between “Nominal” And “Absolute” Oil Filter Ratings?
Absolute filter ratings are determined under controlled testing. The absolute filter rating is shown as 98.7% of particles of a stated diameter being stopped by the oil filter. In the case of AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil Filters, they stop 98.7% of particles measuring 20 microns in size or larger.
Nominal ratings such as the 5-micron rating touted by Harley-Davidson has zero meaning without mentioning efficiency. Chances are high that the H-D filters are about 50% efficient at 5 microns. Where a Harley 5-micron oil filter would score in an absolute filter micron test is anyone’s guess.
What Is a Micron?
A micron is a unit of measurement that is 0.001 millimeters or 0.000039 inches. For example, bacteria are 2 to 3 microns in diameter and a red blood cell is 5 microns. The diameter of human hair averages 70 to 80 microns.
To sum up the Harley-Davidson And AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil Filter Micron Ratings Comparisons, Harley oil filters might be well-built and near the top of the heap. But it’s very hard to tell. The nominal 5-micron rating touted by Harley-Davidson has no meaning without mentioning efficiency while Amsoil is very clear.
It’s no secret the Harley-Davidson owners are a loyal bunch and quite particular about how they care for their motorcycles. So it’s no surprise that some are hesitant to use anything other the house brand of Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle or H-D 360 motorcycle oils. But we have been witnessing a quiet revolution in this area over the past decade as large numbers of riders are moving to AMSOIL 20W-50 or SAE 60 Synthetic Motorcycle Oils for their rides and raving about the discernible benefits of cooler operation, smoother shifting and reduced oil consumption.
How Does Harley-Davidson Oil Compare to AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 and SAE 60?
AMSOIL has conducted several head-to-head tests against Harley oils over the past few years. The latest comparisons show that AMSOIL delivers superior motorcycle oil.
AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic vs. Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle 20W-50
In the chart below, we see a four-ball wear test using the ASTM D-4172B protocol. The AMSOIL 20W-50 shows a wear scar diameter of 0.40mm, while the H-D Screamin’ Eagle 20W-50 sustains a wear scar diameter of 0.59mm. The Screamin’ Eagle 20W-50 wear scar is 47.5% larger than the AMSOIL 20W-50 result. How does this affect wear control in your engine? This result proves that AMSOIL 20W-50 is vastly superior at delivering boundary lubrication protection in your engine, transmission and primary chaincase. The chance of sustaining wear damage due to metal-to-metal contact is greatly reduced. A note about the 4-ball wear test. It is a legitimate ASTM testing procedure and not to be confused with the fraudulent one arm bandit test.
In the SAE 60 motorcycle oil comparison, AMSOIL SAE 60 and Harley-Davidson HD-360 SAE 60 motorcycle oils were subjected to the High-Temp/High-Shear using the ASTM D 4683 test procedure. This test demonstrates an oil’s ability to maintain viscosity protection under high temperatures. As you’ll note in the graph below, the AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil’s viscosity is 11.26% higher than the HD-360 SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil after the conclusion of the test. This means that the Harley oil was susceptible to shear down, while the AMSOIL SAE 60 viscosity was steadier. This translates into stable and consistent protection under extreme heat and loads.
Use in engine, transmission and primary chaincase. A secondary recommendation for the transmission is AMSOIL Severe Gear 75W-110 Gear Oil. Ironhead, Evolution Sportster and V-Rod models-Use in engine and transmission.
AMSOIL SAE 60 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil is recommended for the following applications. Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead and Shovelhead models-Use in engine and transmission.
