Synthetics, Slipperiness and Wet Clutches
Many people have the perception
that since synthetics are more slippery than petroleum oils (which simply
don't reduce friction as well), that wet clutch packs in either their
automotive automatic transmission or motorcycle transmission will slip when
using "super slippery synthetics". Synthetic oil is no more "slippery" than
petroleum oil when it's between two contacting friction surfaces. It simply has a more uniform
and more ideal molecular structure which
reduces the oil's internal frictional resistance better than the irregular shapes and sizes
molecular structures in a petroleum oil.
That means that when the
motorcycle clutch and gears are spinning, the synthetic oil gives less
resistance to that motion, which gives you more horsepower at the tire and
uses less gas. But when the clutch is engaged and the oil is pushed
out from between the clutch surfaces, they have just as much friction
against each other as with regular petroleum oil.
Look at it this way. Wet sandpaper removes paint as well as dry sandpaper
does. The slipperiness of the water does not impede the sandpaper's ability
to function. The same applies to the "slipperiness" of synthetic lubes in
If used dry, the sandpaper is soon filled with paint and no longer works- it
slips across the surface without grasping the surface. If kept clean and
free of paint, it continues to work. The lubricating/cleaning solution used
can be water, soap, oil or any other liquid, as long as it keeps the
friction surface clean. The liquid's slipperiness does
not affect the performance of the sandpaper. It is simply not an issue.
However, just as rinsing the sandpaper
keeps it cleaner longer so it functions better longer, so the synthetic
lubricant keeps wet clutch plates cleaner longer so they function better.
Clutch slippage is normally
caused by "glaze" buildup on the clutch plate surfaces.
Petroleum oils have low resistance to heat. Because they break down in
contact with hot surfaces, they deposit thin layers of varnish and glaze on
the hot clutch plate surfaces, which gradually leads to slippage and increased heat
generation and eventually... failure of the clutch pack.
AMSOIL synthetic lubricants will prevent deposit buildup on clutch plates,
therefore keeping the face clean and able to do its job in preventing
slippage. But that's not all. The superior cleaning abilities of
AMSOIL motorcycle oils will slowly dissolve the petroleum-oil
varnish/glaze deposits on the clutch, restoring "like new" shifting to
clutches that are not severely worn or deteriorated from excessive heat
buildup. (Many thousands of motorcycle riders are very pleased with
this benefit of AMSOIL motorcycle oils.)
And, since synthetics are superior cooling agents to conventional petroleum
lubes, using synthetics will reduce the operating temperature of the clutch
plate - so they help wet clutches last longer, too..
Also, AMSOIL motorcycle oils are specifically formulated without any
friction modifiers for full compatibility with wet clutch packs. AMSOIL ATF
lubricants are also designed with specific coefficient of friction values to
meet the requirements of each and every specification. AMSOIL
lubricants are not designed to just
meet specifications, but to dramatically exceed them.
Now you know the facts. The next time your buddy mentions this as a
potential issue, you can explain to him exactly why it is simply not an
AMSOIL is the undisputed leader in
Since 1972, AMSOIL Synthetic
drivetrain LUBRICANTS have proven to be the
highest performance engine oils, greases, transmission fluids, and hydraulic and differential
gear oils on the market.
But the other key issue is
We now cover oil filters, air filters and other fluid filters like NO-ONE else can. AMSOIL
offers the highest performance, most cost-effective, most comprehensive filter line on
earth. Consider air and oil...
Until now, Nanofiber filtration technology has been used
exclusively in heavy duty applications, including the
US ARMY Abrams M1 tank. AMSOIL Ea Filters are the first and only
filter line to bring this technology to the auto/light truck
oil filters provide unmatched full-flow
98.7 percent at
15 microns, and
50 percent at 7
This translates to a 70% reduction in engine wear rates, tripling remaining
engine life while giving longer
filter life and lower pressure drop for better cold-start performance: the only
filtration that gives you the best performance in every category! Compare
that to the filters lining the auto-parts shelves, which don't tell you their
common 7,500 mile design life and either won't tell you what micron level their efficiency rating is for,
or they claim a micron particle size without stating an efficiency: deceptive,
Additionally, consider bypass filtration systems for
commercial and fleet applications in cars and light, medium and heavy trucks
which can filter particles down to less than one micron and are 89% efficient
at 1 micron, making oil changes virtually unnecessary and virtually eliminating engine wear.
(A standard full-flow oil filter can only filter to 20 microns with any
reasonable efficiency, but 5-25 microns is widely accepted as the wear-particle
Easy to install, these oil filter systems have been proven by millions of miles of over-the road trucks,
construction equipment and fleet service. And we use these on our personal
diesel pickup trucks: my
Duramax 2500HD has over
70,000 miles since the last oil
drain, the oil analysis looks perfect, and the appearance of this diesel oil
looks like a gas engine with 3,000 miles on the oil.
The MOST IMPORTANT filter on the M1A1 Abrams
battle tank is its' nanofiber air filter.
The MOST Important filter on YOUR vehicle is also the air
It's far better, and easier, to keep wear particles out of the
engine than it is to attempt filtering them out of the engine oil. Yet
filter companies and vehicle manufacturer's are strangely silent about actual
air filter performance and engine needs. Now AMSOIL offers world-leading breakthrough
filters with exclusive nanofiber technology. Based on battlefield-proven
air-induction systems used in military ground and air vehicles, this high-technology filtration is now available
for consumer use! Ea filters are guaranteed for 4 years, 100,000 miles. The engineering rule of
thumb for damaging wear particle size is 5 to 25 microns. Incredibly, these filters
are 100% efficient at removing particles of 3 microns, and are 80% effective at
removing particles of a 1 micron size. This means that NO WEAR PARTICLES
CAN GET PAST OUR Ea AIR FILTERS! AND, they're less expensive to
use than ANY other air filter.
For Power Sports applications, AMSOIL offers a line
of oiled-foam filters. These filters provide better performance than
oiled-gauze air filters, and are used almost exclusively in most off-road
applications including baja, dirt-track racing, and motocross.
For light to heavy trucks, both gas and diesel
engines, AMSOIL's partnership
with Donaldson provides you with the best performance and most cost-effective air
filtration systems in the world. These include both Powercore and
Nanofiber technology filters. We have the full line of

including air, fuel, water, oil and hydraulic filters, with exclusive performance warranties
(no one else in the industry offers filtration performance warranties). Contact us for specific

Well-engineered aftermarket air induction systems
can provide airflow improvements with gains in horsepower, fuel economy, and
towing torque. Unfortunately in many cases they may also let far more wear
particles into your engine than the OEM filter. And oiled media can
contaminate mass flow air sensors, causing problems with emissions, fuel economy
and performance that can even damage transmissions in some cases. AMSOIL
lets you leave those problems behind. Their full line of
nanofiber universal air induction filters (EaAU)
are designed to replace stock oil wetted gauze or foam conical
filters that were supplied with custom induction systems
produced by K&N, Injen, S&B, Green, AIRAID, AFE, TrueFlow
and more. Whether your air induction system is in a gasoline
street-rod, or a diesel truck, you have great airflow but you need better
filtration and more capacity than oiled gauze or foam. AMSOIL Ea Air Induction Filters are dry no-oil
filters with nanofiber filtration media to bring your
aftermarket far better
efficiency, 50 times the capacity, and excellent airflow
while being easily cleanable - every 25,000 miles.
