SMF111 Super Duty Motorcycle Oil Filter
AMSOIL SMF Motorcycle Oil Filters
No matter what kind of riding you do, there’s an AMSOIL Super Duty Motorcycle Oil Filter that’s right for your bike or ATV.
Oil is the life blood of your motorcycle engine. Your oil filtration system keeps that life blood flowing and your ride on the road.
The three main functions of any oil filter are flow, life and efficiency.
Flow is the filter’s ability to let the right volume of oil reach its intended parts, with a minimum degree of restriction.
Life is the filter’s capacity to remain in service for a predicted amount of time.
Efficiency is the filter’s ability to remove contaminants that cause engine wear.
While each of those functions is vital individually, there’s more to it.
“Remember, it’s more than just flow. It’s more than just efficiency. It’s more than just life,” said Dave Anderson, AMSOIL Technical Sales Director. “They all have to perform in unison. A filter is only as good as its weakest link.”
Typically, oil filters are comprised of cellulose, or paper, synthetic fibers, glass fibers, or a combination of media.
“All of these fibers have a different set of characteristics to them,” Anderson said.
Each provides different levels of filtration of the damaging dirt and dust particles that shorten the life of a motorcycle engine.
Traps Dirt Throughout Media Thickness
Up to 100% More Capacity
Up to 20% More Efficiency
Built for Rugged Performance
Heavy-duty Steel Case Withstands Extreme Conditions
Assures Oil Flow With Relief Valve
Prevents Oil Drainage During Engine Shutdown
Flow is gained through a media that is open and free, while efficiency is gained through media that is closed and difficult to penetrate. The flow versus efficiency ” compromise within the filtration system is the greatest demand on an oil filter’s performance.
“Through our testing, we have found the best for motorcycles, and automobiles, is a blend of the three media – synthetic, cellulose and glass,” Anderson said.. “That gives the best overall performance. You have to look at overall performance. How they do all the tasks that you want them to do. A prudent consumer must consider the total package.”
AMSOIL Super Duty Motorcycle Oil Filters provide the greatest possible balance of that “total package” to provide the ultimate in overall filtration performance.
Built for Rugged Performance
The AMSOIL SMF has a heavy-duty case of drawn steel. The case is double-crimped at the base with rolled-under seaming to withstand extreme pressure surges and road shocks.
AMSOIL SMF are available in spin-on and cartridge types.
These quality full-flow filters are designed to allow extended filter change intervals.
AMSOIL INC. recommends the following guidelines. When using an AMSOIL SMF with conventional oil, change the filter at the manufacturer ’s recommendation. When using an AMSOIL SMF with AMSOIL Motor Oil, change the filter at twice the manufacturer ’s recommendation or six months.
