AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost (MOB) increases octane for power and efficiency. It is designed to improve startup performance and eliminate engine ping and knock for increased power at low-rpm operation. Motorcycle Octane Boost contains detergents that help combustion chambers and fuel delivery systems maintain cleanliness for optimum performance. At the recommended treat rate, it does not harm catalytic converters or oxygen sensors and is compatible with all other AMSOIL fuel additives.
Maximizes Power & Performance
When treated at 1.3 oz. per gallon of fuel, MOB increases the octane of gasoline up to three numbers. Increased octane improves power and can eliminate performance-robbing and potentially damaging engine knock or ping (see below).
Improves Low-rpm Performance
Engine knock is especially noticeable in some motorcycles during idle or low-rpm operation and high-temperature driving. Most modern bikes are equipped with sophisticated knock-detection systems that can alter spark timing and the air-to-fuel mixture until knock ceases. Although these systems protect the engine from damage, they can also cause reduced horsepower and poor low-rpm operability. AMSOIL MOB helps reduce the need for knock-detection systems to compensate, ensuring maximum low-rpm power and performance in modern bikes.
Cleans Harmful Deposits
Because Motorcycle Octane Boost contains active detergents, it can help maintain efficiency. For clean up, however, AMSOIL recommends treating gasoline with AMSOIL Quickshot®, which contains a greater concentration of cleaning agents.
What is engine knock and why does it matter?
The tendency of a hydrocarbon fuel, such as gasoline, to knock is measured by its octane number. Lower numbers denote a greater knock tendency; higher numbers denote greater knock control. “Engine knock” is a reference to the sound made from an uncontrolled and early ignition of fuel in the combustion chamber. It causes a knocking or pinging sound, robs the engine of power and can cause catastrophic engine damage. Knock may be eliminated by increasing the fuel’s octane.
What is Research Octane Number?
Research Octane Number (RON), Motor Octane Number (MON) and Anti-Knock Index (AKI) are the three most common octane ratings. AKI, the rating with which most North American motorists are familiar, is typically displayed on gas pumps as the average of the fuel’s RON and MON [(R+M)/2]. RON, however, is the most common industry rating. Therefore, AMSOIL uses the RON rating when conducting performance tests and product validation. Gasoline’s RON generally is a few numbers higher than the AKI posted on the gas pump (e.g. 87 octane fuel, or regular pump gas, has a RON of about 91-92).
When marketing their products, some additive manufacturers have adopted a points system where 10 points equals one octane number. A claim that an additive increases octane 30 points translates into an increase of three octane numbers. This approach is often used only to artificially strengthen marketing claims and is not endorsed by AMSOIL.
One 4-oz. bottle of AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost treats four to six gallons of gasoline. Slight overtreatment causes no issues,
Motorcycle Octane Boost is primarily recommended for use in four-stroke air- or liquid-cooled motorcycles manufactured by Harley-Davidson®, Yamaha®, Honda®, Ducati®, BMW®, Triumph® and all other four-stroke motorcycles. It may be used in off-road applications, including ATVs, UTVs and snowmobiles, as an alternative to AMSOIL DOMINATOR® Octane Boost. Note: Clean spills immediately using a clean towel. If left standing, Motorcycle Octane Boost can stain painted or metal surfaces. If cleaned immediately, there is no need for concern.
Many truck and SUV owners personalize their vehicles with aftermarket products such as lift kits, tires and rims, custom grills, paint, wheel well flairs and engine upgrades. While these upgrades and accessories can increase engine performance and add plenty of visual appeal, they do nothing for extending drivetrain life like synthetic gear oil can do. Most people perform proper engine maintenance and change their engine oil on a regular basis, but according to one quick lube business, only about two percent of its customers purchase differential gear lube changes. Even fewer change to synthetic gear oil. Sometimes this out of sight, out of mind differential neglect results in costly gear failure, leaving the motorist stranded on the highway.
There are two basic ways to change differential gear lube to synthetic gear oil. The old fluid may be drained or suctioned out and the differential refilled with new gear lube, or the differential cover may be removed to allow more of the old gear lube to drain out and allow access to the magnet inside the differential. Unlike engines, differentials are not equipped with filters. Instead, magnets that are open to the entire gear lube sump are used to catch some of the metal wear particles. When changing differential fluid, the magnet should be cleaned to ensure the new gear lube does not
After draining the old fluid and cleaning the magnet, the differential cover should be re-installed and the differential filled with the correct viscosity grade of AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic Gear Lube. The use of cleaning solvents is not recommended. Initial differential oil changes are recommended by some manufacturers after the first 500 to
3,000 miles. synthetic gear oil
Even when vehicle manufacturers do not specify to change the factory-fill gear lube to remove wear particles, it is a
good practice to do so. For optimum gear and bearing life, AMSOIL recommends the factory-fill differential gear lube
be changed no later than the first 5,000 miles with new or rebuilt gears, followed by 50,000 mile drain intervals in
severe service or 100,000 mile drain intervals in normal service when using AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes.
AMSOIL recommends any one of three SEVERE GEAR viscosity grades, 75W-90, 75W-110 or 75W-140, for turbo diesel or 4×4 trucks, SUV’s and automobiles.
SEVERE GEAR 75W-90 (SVG) replaces competitive 75W-90 and
80W-90 gear lubricants and delivers the optimum fuel efficiency and cold temperature performance of all the SEVERE GEAR gear lubes.
SEVERE GEAR 75W-110 (SVT) replaces competitive 75W-110, 75W-90 and 80W-90 gear lubricants and delivers increased fluid film wear protection over lighter viscosity fluids and better fuel efficiency than 75W-140 gear lubes.
SEVERE GEAR 75W-140 (SVO) replaces competitive 75W-140, 80W-140 and 85W-140 gear lubes in applications where these viscosities are recommended by equipment manufacturers.

Morgantown, W. Va. (December 23, 2011) – Just in time for the holidays, Racer Productions is pleased to announce the locations for the 2012 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series. America’s largest off-road racing series will once again kick off its 13-round schedule at Westgate River Ranch Resort in River Ranch, Fla., coinciding with Daytona Bike Week March 10-13.
Highlighting the 2012 calendar is the addition of three all-new GNCC Racing venues in Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia-giving racers the opportunity to compete on fresh soil next season.
“We’re really excited to introduce three new venues to the GNCC Racing schedule next year,” said GNCC Trail Boss, Jeff Russell. “Since the Loretta’s GNCC, we’ve been traveling all over to find new GNCC Racing venues for our GNCC Racers and I think the fresh trail and new scenery will add a whole new level of excitement for everyone.”
The series returns to many GNCC favorites in 2012, including Snowshoe Resort, Unadilla MX, Ironman and Loretta Lynn’s, which will once again serve as the season finale.
A special weekend GNCC Racing format will take place at Loretta Lynn Ranch in November, in order to accommodate the 2012 ISDE and National Enduro schedules. Motorcycles will compete throughout the day on Saturday and ATV racing will follow on Sunday-atypical from the other 12 rounds of racing where ATVs compete on Saturday and motorcycles on Sunday.
Read the entire history of the event at www.gnccracing.com. Here are some excerpts;
How GNCC Racing Works
Six races are held each weekend. Each race contains several classes, with each class separated into separate starting-line rows that begin one minute apart. On ATV day, Youth riders aged 6 – 15 race for one hour starting at 8 a.m. A two-hour race for the Women, Utility, Super Senior and Novice classes starts at 10 a.m., and then the Pro, Pro Am, A and B riders race at 1 p.m. On Bike days, Youth riders aged 7 – 15 race for 90 minutes at 8 a.m.; Women, Super Senior and Novice riders race for two hours at 10 a.m.; and the Pro, A and B riders race for three hours starting at 1 p.m.
Each GNCC Racing class is scored separately using a computerized transponder scoring.
GNCC courses usually run between 10 and 12 miles long for adult classes and 3-5 miles for youth.
Over 1500 GNCC Racing riders will compete during a GNCC weekend, and they hail from all 50 states, as well as Europe, Asia and Australia.
The top pro racers make a lucrative living racing the series thanks to prize money and sponsorship endorsements. Racing is a full-time job for a GNCC championship contender.

Posted: December 8, 2011 – Announcement
Briggs & Stratton, the world’s largest manufacturer of small engines, approached AMSOIL for help. Briggs & Stratton goal was to produce a synthetic racing oil for their highest performance and most expensive engines used in kart, junior drag, quarter midget and other racing applications. AMSOIL was specifically chosen because of our technical resources and quality reputation, and we delivered technology that exceeded expectations.
This new oil will be sold exclusively through Briggs & Stratton, and the company has announced its availability in early 2012 for the upcoming racing season. They have elected to boldly display an AMSOIL logo on the packaging to boost the credibility of the product. Even though the oil is targeted for a very small niche market, the affiliation with such a widely recognized and highly regarded company will benefit AMSOIL Dealers by expanding AMSOIL brand awareness and opening a full range of sales opportunities. Several additional details regarding this product and partnership remain to be worked out, and those details will be announced when the partnership is finalized.

In general, Family Handyman gets it straight on these tips. These have each been a long standing myth so it’s good to get a major magazine to clear the air. We agree with their reaction to tips 2,3, and 4.
Amsoil has sold an engine flush product for years. In many cases, it’s not needed. However, in certain cases it’s a proper product to use to transition a car to synthetic oil. It’s been used in thousands of vehicles by thousands of Amsoil customers with no issues.
Amsoil Engine Flush AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush (FLSH) helps restore fuel economy, increase operating efficiency and reduce emissions in gasoline and diesel engines, and automatic transmissions. Its potent, detergent-based formula cleans sludge and deposit build-up, promoting lower operating temperatures and reduced oil consumption. AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush is safe on parts and can be easily disposed of with waste oil. Amsoil Engine Flush
Restores Vehicles to Like-New
New engines and transmissions run more efficiently, but over time they gather harmful deposits that cause power and performance loss. Stop-and-go driving, prolonged idling, short trips that do not allow the engine to reach full operating temperature, towing, the ingestion of airborne dirt, fuel dilution, water condensation and oxidized oil all can promote sludge build-up in motor oil and transmission fluid. As it settles, sludge clogs narrow oil passages, restricting oil flow to vital parts, especially the upper valve train area. Amsoil Engine Flush
In transmissions, deposits can form on clutch plates, causing hesitation and erratic shifting. Ultimately clutch glazing can set in, reducing the life of the transmission. Deposits in engines and transmissions can accelerate wear, causing power loss and increased fuel consumption. Amsoil Engine Flush
• Cleans engines and transmissions for improved efficiency, fuel economy and lower emissions
• Prolongs equipment life
• Detergent-based formula more environmentally friendly
• Compatible with seals and gaskets
• One-treatment results
• Easily disposed of with waste oil
Installing new oil or transmission fluid into a dirty vehicle may not be enough to remove deposits and increase efficiency. The detergents and dispersants in some lubricants may not be able to handle leftover sludge and deposits, and the new lubricant soon becomes unfit for service, accelerating the formation of even more harmful deposits. Amsoil Engine Flush
AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush Benefits
Unlike many flush products, AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush features a multi-use formulation that dissolves and disperses sludge, varnish and deposits in both engines and automatic transmissions. Due to its detergent-based formulation, used AMSOIL FLSH can be easily disposed of with waste oil, making it more user-friendly. Its advanced formula of light base oil technology, powerful detergents and dispersants provides safe cleaning action. AMSOIL FLSH is compatible with both petroleum and synthetic oils, preparing poorly maintained equipment for installation of new oil. It represents the first step toward restoring neglected equipment to top-notch performance. AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush provides the following benefits in only one treatment:
Gasoline and Diesel Engines
• Helps loosen sticky valves and rings, minimizing blow-by and reducing emissions
• Helps quiet lifter noise
• Promotes lower operating temperatures through sludge removal
• Easy disposal
• Cleans deposits in oil cooler and ports
• Helps unclog fluid passages
• Cleans deposits and varnish from clutch plates, helping improve efficiency
• Promotes smoother operation and transmission life through reduced shift delay
AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush is recommended for diesel and gasoline engines, and automatic transmissions. It is not recommended for CVT transmissions or differentials.
Directions for Use
Though it works in one treatment, AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush is safe enough to be used at every oil change. If using a flushing machine, follow the manufacturer’s recommendation. Otherwise, use the following guidelines:
Engine: Add 16 oz. bottle of AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush to engine oil fill port. Idle the engine for 10-15 minutes, then immediately drain the oil. Ensure enough time for the system to completely
drain. Remove and replace the engine oil filter. Refill engine with new engine oil in the viscosity grade recommended by the manufacturer.
Transmission: Engage emergency brake. Add 16 oz. bottle of AMSOIL Engine Flush to transmission oil fill port. Idle for 10-15 minutes; shift through drive and reverse. Do NOT place vehicle under heavy load. Drain entire transmission and torque converter of fluid. FILTER MUST BE CHANGED prior to refilling with new transmission fluid.
NOTE: It is not recommended to flush transmissions that do not have a removable pan or access to the transmission filter.
(above) Automatic transmission clutch plates pre-cleanup. Varnish and glazing is heavy on some of the plates.

Amsoil synthetic oil works better in extreme cold. Extreme cold can cause conventional motor oil, transmission fluid and gear lube to thicken, starving vital moving parts of necessary lubrication. In many cases, thick motor oil will prevent vehicles from starting. Cold, thick transmission fluid results in delayed or sluggish shifts and inadequate protection for bearings, valves and other critical parts. Thick gear lube, meanwhile, requires more energy to turn the gears, reducing fuel efficiency. Because gears and bearings in the axle housing are splash-lubricated, conventional gear lubes that are too thick at cold temperatures can starve internal components of lubrication, which can cause excessive wear and premature failure.
Conventional petroleum lubricants thicken because they often contain paraffin (wax). While modern refining techniques remove most of the wax from petroleum oil, some wax-like molecules remain. These wax-like molecules are soluble at ambient temperatures above freezing, but crystallize into a honeycomb-like structure at lower temperatures and cause circulation problems. At startup, this can leave working parts unprotected while the lubricant warms to a temperature that allows it to flow. amsoil synthetic lubricants do not contain paraffin. Amsoil synthetic oils provide outstanding low-temperature fluidity for fast, dependable winter starts; quick, responsive shifts and immediate startup protection. Superior Amsoil Fuel & Coolant Additives and Amsoil Diesel applications can be especially sensitive to cold-weather issues. As the temperature drops, the wax naturally found in diesel fuel begins to form
crystals. The point at which wax crystals form is known as the cloud point. These wax crystals eventually clog the fuel filter and starve the engine of fuel, preventing it from starting. While low-quality fuels may form wax crystals in temperatures as warm as 40°F, most fuels have a cloud point near 32°F. The point at which the wax crystals clog the fuel filter is known as the cold filter-plugging point (CFPP). amsoil Cold Flow Improver reduces the CFPP of ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel by as much as 20ºF for increased protection. In frigid conditions, motorists often idle vehicles for extended periods to warm the interiors and defrost the windows. Not only can the practice be inconvenient, it wastes fuel as well. amsoil Dominator® Coolant Boost uses proprietary tiered-surfactant technology to provide quick and effective heat transfer inside radiator and cylinder heads, resulting in faster engine warm-up times. As a result, vehicle interiors warm more quickly and the defroster becomes effective sooner. Amsoil diesel fuel additive. Amsoil antifreeze. Amsoil fuel addetive.
