The new oils were first and foremost designed to make machines faster, at the heart of which is an exclusive and proprietary friction modifier system with a high affinity for metal surfaces and low affinity for clutch plate material. This advanced system is able to improve power, while having a negligible detriment to clutch friction. Through extensive testing, we were able to achieve the necessary balance between “clutch friction increasing” and “crankcase friction decreasing,” allowing for maximum power output from the engine and maximum transmission of power to the rear wheel.
Improved balance between clutch feel and power
100% IMPROVED CLEANLINESS
Deposit control was also improved, in part due to the increase in oxidative stability. Oxidation byproducts are known to form the precursors to unwanted deposits, making oxidative stability the new oils’ first line of defense against harmful buildup. An additional and significant step to improve deposit control was a complete overhaul of the dispersant system, which are the components responsible for keeping contaminants from accumulating on engine surfaces by “dispersing” them throughout the bulk oil. The new dispersants, produced by a completely different and novel process, provide 100% improved cleanliness per unit concentration, drastically reducing engine deposits.

Extended oil change intervals
BETTER CLUTCH PERFORMANCE, ESPECIALLY AT HIGH TEMPS
Clutch performance was improved by introducing chemistries with a high affinity for clutch plate material, but minimal attraction to metal surfaces. The minimal interaction of these components with metal surfaces helps to prevent drag and frictional losses in the crankcase, while still increasing clutch friction. This balancing act allows for maximum efficiency in transferring engine power to the rear wheel, making sure none of that hard-earned power is lost to clutch slippage. To maintain this performance throughout the entire life of the oil, shear stability was also improved, thus ensuring the necessary film thickness required for efficient power transfer.

IMPROVED RESISTANCE TO BREAKDOWN
Oxidative stability was improved by making advancements to the antioxidant chemistry that prevents oxidation of the oil and by selecting even more oxidatively stable base oils than the exceptionally stable base oils used in the outgoing products. The already potent dual-molecule antioxidant system was further improved by both improving the efficacy of the chemistry and increasing the amount of chemistry used. These upgrades have successfully been shown to improve oxidative stability over the previous oils and key competitors.
