SIX PRIMARY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MOTORCYCLE
AND AUTOMOTIVE ENGINE APPLICATIONS:


1) Motorcycles operate at significantly higher operational speeds than
automobiles, placing additional stress on engine components and increasing
wear protection requirements.

2) Motorcycles operate with higher engine compression ratios than
automobiles, placing additional stress on engine components and increasing
operating temperatures.

3) Motorcycle engines produce nearly twice the horsepower per cubic inch of
displacement as automobile engines.

4) Many motorcycles are air-cooled or use a combination air/oil design.
Though effective, they result in greater operating temperature fluctuations,
particularly in stop-and-go traffic.

5) Because the engine and transmission share a common sump, many
motorcycles need a multi-functional fluid. Many motorcycles also
incorporate a frictional clutch within the transmission that uses the same oil.

6) Motorcycles are typically used less frequently than automobiles. These
extended periods of inactivity place additional stress on motorcycle oils. Rust
and acid corrosion protection are critical.


Oil, is the Lifeblood of your engine. The oil filter, is the Kidney that keeps it clean.
