The Breakdown

What is synthetic motor oil?

AMSOIL synthetic lubricants are chemically engineered to form pure lubricants. They contain no contaminants or molecules that don’t serve a designed purpose. Their versatility and pure, uniform molecular structures impart properties that provide better friction-reduction, optimum fuel efficiency, maximum film strength and extreme-temperature performance conventional lubricants just can’t touch.

Difference between Synthetic and Conventional Oil

Petroleum crude oil is a thick, highly flammable dark-brown or greenish liquid with high energy density. Synthetic oil is chemically engineered for a certain molecular composition with a tailored and uniform structure.

Conventional lubricants

Conventional lubricants are refined from crude oil. Contaminating elements such as sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen and metal components such as nickel or vanadium are inherent to crude oil and cannot be completely removed through the refining process. The oil refining process separates the various types of molecules in the oil by weight, leaving molecules similar in weight but dissimilar in structure, reducing performance.

How do AMSOIL's synthetic motor oils compare to other motor oils

AMSOIL synthetic motor oils consistently outperform conventional and other synthetic oils in virtually every category of performance, including wear protection, extreme high- and low-temperature performance, foam control, viscosity retention, rust and corrosion protection, volatility and fuel economy. While other brands may provide good performance in some of these areas, AMSOIL synthetic motor oils consistently perform at the top in every category. Drivers can have confidence knowing that AMSOIL synthetic motor oils provide maximum performance and protection.

How to Keep Your Motorcycle Safe and in Good Condition

Necessary Motorcycle Care and Maintenance
Owning a bike can be a great advantage, especially when it comes to traffic jams and fuel savings. Yet, they do require more proactive care and maintenance than cars. Today we want to explain why this is the case, and what are some of the areas that you should check on regularly.

The Importance of Motorcycle Maintenance
Unlike a car, where you are somewhat protected from external dangers, a motorcycle does not have that kind of enclosed shelter for you or certain components. For example, the steering wheel, brake pedals, and other controls of a car are internally protected away from the environmental dangers such as rain. In a motorcycle that is not the case, all those areas are out in the open and can be affected by the wind, dust, rain, and other external factors. Both your body and those certain components are completely exposed to the surrounding threats. This makes it is even more necessary that you keep your  motorcycle well maintained and in great shape. You may not always be able to control the external dangers that can cause you to be in an accident. Yet, what you can do, is to always ensure good motorcycle maintenance in order to prevent any hazardous failure.

Areas of Your Motorcycle That Need to be Inspected and Regularly Maintained
The engine. Whether you have a dirt bike, a regular bike or a car the engine is the life of your vehicle. Bike engines are usually pretty sturdy and durable but if you don´t provide it with regular maintenance and quality lubrication they won´t last very long. Check the oil at least every three to four weeks and keep it at the MAX or HIGH level, but never over that. Replace the motor oil around every 2,500miles more or less or about every 4-6 months depending on the use and conditions of your bike. It is best that you check your manufacturer´s recommendations and follow those directly as some motorcycles require an oil change more often than others. Also, follow their recommendations in regards to the type of motor oil that your bike requires. Remember to also change the oil filter as necessary and to use quality products that can assist in prolonging engine durability. AMSOIL has the most reliable products for all your motorcycle's lubrication needs. Contact Cerberus Systems, Inc. right now, to purchase the best motorcycle oil and other quality products for your bike.
Tires. The number one cause for motorcycle breakdowns is tire damage. Always inspect your motorcycle tires before heading out. Many accidents can be prevented by ensuring that the tires are in good conditions and that they are properly inflated. Properly inflating your tires also prevents wear and blow-outs. It is best to replace your tires ahead of time than to wait too long to do so. Check the thread depth, if it is around 1-2mm you replace the tires as soon as possible.
Brakes. Being able to properly control the bike and having it respond adequately is vital. The brake fluid plays a big role in how well the brakes function. Motorcycles have two fluid deposits: the front brakes and the back. When checking the brake fluid always check both and be very careful when topping off. You should avoid topping off the brake fluid from an open bottle as brake fluid absorbs moisture over time and can decay. If your brakes are low on brake fluid, top off from a new bottle that is properly sealed. Take extra precautions when handling the brake fluid because if you spill some on the paint of your bike it will eat away the paint. You should also check the brake pads. They should be cushiony and not very thin. If they have worn out, you should immediately replace them before your brake disc pays the consequences and you end up having to pay a costly repair for it.
Chains. The chains also need to be kept lubricated and clean. Lubricating the chains is a quick and easy task that you should do at the end of the day when you are done riding but the chain is still warm. Use a chain spray on the side that regularly brushes against the sprockets, do this on the left and right and wait a few minutes before removing the excess oil.

AMSOIL guarantees the performance of its products, so you can be confident they perform as advertised. AMSOIL introduced the world’s first API-qualified synthetic motor oil and has since introduced a full line of industry firsts. For more than 40 years, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have proven themselves in the lab, on the racetrack and on the highway.
