LOYD BLASZ OF NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, found AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils
and lubricants solved his problems with a new motorcycle, and now he's a lifelong user.
He recently bought a Honda Shadow VT750C motorcycle. "Beign new, things are tight,
so when I had some shifting problems and a clutch that was displaying excessive grabbiness,
I did not think much of it," Blasz daid. "But after a very respectable break-in period
went by, at just over 8000 km (5000 miles), everything was broken in and loosened up.
Yet I still had a clutch that would often grab resulting in lurching or stalling the
engine if I did not give it enough gas to get the RPMs up to prevent stalling in stop
and go city rush hour driving."
The clutch checked out to be properly adjusted. Another problem was a loud clunking
sound when he put the motorcycle in gear. "Often I thought 'this cannot be all that
good on the gears.'"
He was using conventional motorcycle oils up to this time and decided he'd check
into synthetics. Blasz researched synthetic motorcycle oils on the internet and found
AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil seemed the best suited for his needs, he said.
"After putting a new filter on my bike I poured in AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 Motorcycle
Oil and started it up," Blasz said. "Within about 15 minutes of riding I was noticing
something was different with the engine. To my surprise, the clutch was as smooth as
silk when I was letting it out. Gone was the sudden lurch from the clutch grabbing when
it was almost fully engaged. The loud gear-snapping clunk became a soft clunk of going
After about 2000 km (1250 miles) with AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil all,
the "little annoyances disappeared," he said. "I have yet to experience a shifting problem
gearing down when sitting at a red light." Since then Blasz has changed over the rear
drive units to AMSOIL Synthetic 75W-90 Gear Lube.
"I am so pleased with the results that I have recommended your oil to my friends
with motorcycles and even asked the shop where I have my bike serviced to stock AMSOIL
products as this is the only oil I wish to use from her on in," Blasz said.
