Royal Purple Max-Cycle Motor Oil, 20W-50, 1 Quart Bottle

Max-Cycle is specifically formulated to significantly improve motorcycle, ATV and snowmobile engine (and transmission) performance. It’s recommended for use in both air-cooled and liquid-cooled 4-cycle engines and it’s compatible with wet-clutch transmissions.

Max-Cycle provides unparalleled film strength when compared to the leading synthetic and mineral oils. Its shear stability and oxidation resistance promote greater performance and protection.

Formulated with select synthetic base oils and Royal Purple’s proprietary Synerlec additive technology, Max-Cycle greatly reduces engine wear — including ring, cylinder and bearing wear. It continuously adheres to metal surfaces, even after shutdown, to provide instant protection at startup until a full fluid film can be established.

Max-Cycle exceeds API / JASO new warranty requirements and is compatible with other mineral and synthetic motor oils. No flushing is necessary prior to use. It’s available in 10W30, 10W40 and 20W50 viscosities.

Max-Cycle’s high film strength dramatically reduces wear. Take a look at the pictures of cam chain tensioners below. maxcycle

Each tensioner came from an American V-Twin engine with 10,000 miles of use. The tensioner on the left is from an engine that used the manufacturer’s conventional oil. The tensioner in the middle is from an engine that used the manufacturer’s synthetic oil. The tensioner on the right is from an engine that used Royal Purple after an initial break-in period of 1,500 miles. Once again, all of the cam chain tensioners are shown after a total of 10,000 miles of use. The difference in wear is dramatic.
