Apparently all you have to do is google his name and he's on a million other forums peddling Amsoil schwag. But I digress.

I get my oil from Walmart. Filter comes from whoever carries wix.

Likely? so you don't know for a fact that? what does the bikes manual state as the oil requirement for a bike? and you may want to clarify MA/MA2

New JASO oil standards (MA1, MA2):

JASO effectively added the JASO-MA2 & JASO-MA1 specifications by splitting the existing JASO-MA spec into two groups by friction-performance (MA1 is the lower friction oils; MA2 the higher friction oils suitable for bikes).
The change came out as final/approved in 2006 in response to catalytic converters becoming widespread in bikes (EPA/EU requirements); it was also prompted in part by the car-lobby of the JASO organization wanting to specify a subset of the JASO-MA oils for use in their cars (the low friction oils, which become JASO-MA1). JASO-MA2 is just starting to show up in the US Market as a rating because this is the first year that catalytic converter-equipped bikes are widespread.

Aside from splitting the MA spec into two sub-groups, the new specs add a phosphorous content ceiling (better protect catalytic converters by using less, but phosphorous is also anti-wear additive, so it could be less start-up protection). JASO-MA2 being the heavier friction oils most suitable for motorcycle use will become the common standard for Japanese-built (and many Euro-built) motorcycles for the '08 and later model years.

Note that JASO-MA2 can now be API SJ formulated, but API SL & API SM formulations still directly contradict JASO-MA/MA1/MA2 standards because of the use of friction modifiers that are not wet-clutch compatible.

The JASO-MA (no suffix number) still remains in effect as well. For the Kats, API SF/SG + JASO-MA rated oils will remain the oils of choice until they are no longer available.

Cheers,

Oh and you may want to go back and check your link to API. Because as far as I know www.api.com is NOT www.api.ORG

your creditability is fastly going down the drain.

OTOH - I don't suppose you could give me any information on how to become and AMSOIL distributor, right?

I get my oil and filters at KS Cycles in Katy.
K&N oil and air filters, full synthetic motorcycle oil

I have been dealing with Kevin for years, get tires, chains and other non-Triumph stuff there, some maintenance & repairs too. I like to give business to the local guys when I can.
