In today’s world we are pushing more and more for “natural” substances for things like health and the environment. However, is all-natural the best solution everywhere? Well, in motor oils it may not be! Here is why –

Conventional oils are derived from crude, natural sources and then physically separated to extract specific weights in molecules. This means that once the oil is processed it consists of different molecules that have generally the same weight. The problem with this is that many of those molecules are not beneficial in any way to an engine.........

Let me know if I can help any!

Take care

I saw a video once where they ran a air cooled motorcycle engine with conventional oil Synthetic and looked at it with a thermal camera.

The same engine with synthetic ran like ten degrees cooler....

I feel I should also add that I do not remeber what kind of bike it was and weather or not it had a wet clutch and could have "energy saving" stuff in the oil, which we already know we cannot have.

AMSOIL is completely safe with wet clutch. Just FYI! Conventional has a much harder time keeping the temps down due to the fact that it breaks down when hot. After it breaks down, it allows metal on metal contact and causes even more heat (not to mention damage as well). Synthetic oil is much better at keeping its film strength which seperates surfaces with a thin layer of protection. keeping eccess heat from being created. less friction = less heat.
