if there are wet clutch oils with friction modifiers that will work ...
then so as I said and I think we agree if the oil does not have friction modifires
it would work fine if it is quality oil
" your oil is probaly loaded with friction modifiers"
How do you know what oi lI use?
amsiol that you recomend does not contain friction modifiers
and is jaso ma2 as stated by amsiol
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Motorcycle Oil contains no friction modifiers and promotes smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement. AMSOIL MCF controls heat and prevents slippage and glazing, helping improve clutch life. AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Motorcycle Oil meets the wet clutch frictional requirements of JASO Standard T903: 2006, MA/MA2 and ISO-L-EMA2 of ISO Standard 24254:2007.
change oil often period...
...So does the amsiol have FMs or not
I don't know what oil you use, but by your posts, I'm going to guess Amsoil.
It really depends on what you consider "friction modifiers". The term isn't defined well in industry trade law. I am an Amsoil user, and preferred customer, and have been for quite some time. That does not change the fact that it contains high levels of zinc "anti-wear" compounds, and quite a bit of moly compounds for the same purpose. At one time, these were all considered friction reducers, and that is a fairly accurate description of one of the things a boundary lubricant accomplishes. But the oil does not contain these in concentrations regarded as high enough to qualify the oil as "energy conserving", so it isn't a "friction modified" oil, and they don't have to call it that. Besides, as was pointed out, no 40 wt will ever be rated EC II, anyway. This is one of those areas of the oil bidness where literal accuracy suffers a bit, unfortunately.
Im sorry but thats what the instructions said in my new hinson boxes!!!!!!!!!!
I'm sorry, too, but it's still ridiculous. The JASO standard, MA, and the later MA2, are oil standards that address primarily two issues: boundary lubrication and compatibility with wet clutches. Most contemporary motorcycle oils, including synthetics, are either certified MA/MA2, or labeled as meeting that standard, which specifically means that they are perfectly OK to use with clutch components made by Hinson or anyone else.
