Take the case of a skeptical Harley owner I'll call SO. On the advice of a well-known Harley mechanic, and a hard-core believer in AMSOIL motorcycle oils, he recommended SO try AMSOIL in his bike. And SO did.
The story goes that it was time for service, and against the advice of the mechanic, SO decided to do his own servicing since he had a trip planned the next day and had to get things taken care of. SO assured the mechanic that he knew what he was doing and left on his trip as planned. According to the mechanic, when SO returned from the trip, SO explained that the noise and improper operation of the transmission started immediately after starting out and never got better or worse throughout the trip of approximately 1000 miles.
The rest of the story – after the mechanic had a chance to investigate, turned out SO had inadvertently added the transmission fluid to the engine. He overfilled it, leaving the transmission empty except for the previous AMSOIL fluid residue. At that point it was plain to the mechanic, myself and SO why the motorcycle was acting strange.
We all agreed that improper servicing was the problem, NOT AMSOIL. After proper service the bike was operating better than ever. Our advice–leave the servicing of expensive machinery to the experts. And after all things considered, we concluded the only reason the bike didn't breakdown was that AMSOIL had been used and protected the transmission with just AMSOIL residue.
In conclusion–everyone involved learned a valuable lesson and AMSOIL saved the day. And, most of all, don't jump to conclusions until you get the rest of the story!
