Page 11: "Lube Specialist Praises AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil
You’ll notice by my signature below that I am an employee of Chevron Global
lubricants division. I originally worked for Amoco at the R&D facility before
moving into marketing, and while in that role, Chevron bought our lubricants
business right after I moved to Florida.
All in all, I have more than 34 years of experience in fuels and lubricants
testing, development and tech service support.
I own three motorcycles that I either drive on the street or race. What I wanted
to share with you today is my experience with my drag bike.
It is a Yamaha Roadstar Warrior. Originally built as a power cruiser, but now it
is stretched, slammed and built to run on E-85 fuel and nitrous oxide. I have
taken this bike from a fun street cruiser to a beast that wants to jump out from
under me every time I snap the throttle.
The engine is putting out more than three times the horsepower it was
originally built with, and with the highly oxygenated fuel, nitrous and severe
use, I have been battling cylinder and piston ring distress for a couple of
years. Essentially, whenever I did a teardown, there was evidence of streaking
aggravated by the high cylinder pressures and fuel dilution.
Since Chevron does not make motorcycle oils, I have had to try many of the
“other” different motor oils, all synthetic. To make a long story short, I should
have read your white paper on motorcycle oil testing. It would have saved
me at least three premature teardowns. Bottom line – the AMSOIL 20W-50
Synthetic Motorcycle Oil has completely solved my problems. I have
been running it for over a year now, and compression and leakdown have
stayed at the exact level as when the engine was freshly rebuilt. This weekend,
I tore down the top end to try a new piston ring combination, and thhad absolutely NO sign of streaking or other wear-related distress. Bottom line –
the AMSOIL 20W-50
Synthetic Motorcycle Oil
has completely solved
Also, all other clearances, including valve lash and valve guide and bearing,
have stayed the same. This is truly remarkable.
In my training endeavors, I run into a lot of end users who are high
performance junkies just like me. I have no problem sharing my experience
with the AMSOIL products. In fact, just last month, I gave some lubricant
training to 187 instructors at the UTI technical school in Orlando. I made it very
clear that I was a big fan of yours.
Thank you so much for the great product.
