Upgraded Protection for Indian Scout, Victory Motorcycles


Available May 1, new AMSOIL 15W-60 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil (MSV) expands the V-Twin family. It is recommended for the popular Indian* Scout* and all Victory* motorcycles, providing opportunities for sales where none existed before.

Like the rest of the V-Twin line, 15W-60 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is designed to resist extreme heat and deliver excellent wear protection. Summer riding can cause engine temperatures to skyrocket, especially in slow-moving rally or parade traffic, which places added stress on the oil and invites chemical breakdown and wear. AMSOIL 15W-60 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil’s outstanding heat resistance helps bikers ride with confidence in the most extreme conditions.

See the May AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

New Bottle Sizes Increase SABER® Professional’s Convenience


Our research shows, and Dealers have confirmed, that users of SABER Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil (ATP) value the convenience of using one mix ratio for all their equipment more than any other benefit. To enhance SABER Professional’s convenience and simplify mixing fuel, the product is available in 2.6-oz., 6.4-oz. and 12.8-oz. bottles in the U.S. beginning May 1. Current SABER Professional package sizes remain unchanged in the U.S. The new 6.4-oz. (189-ml.) bottle will be available in Canada soon. Ongoing compliance and regulatory issues have pushed its launch in Canada to at least June 1. Watch the Dealer Zone for an announcement.

New AMSOIL Marine Gear Lube Pump: Easier Service with Less Mess


The new AMSOIL Marine Gear Lube Pump (G3456) is specifically designed to ease installation and reduce mess when servicing lower units with quarts of AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube (AGM). It includes an adapter that allows it to fit all lower units on the market, making it perfect for retail accounts or customers who sell or use AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube. In addition, it includes a tip that threads into the lower-unit fill hole for easier fluid changes.

With the introduction of this new pump, the AMSOIL Bottle Hand Pump (G2039) will be modified slightly to remove an adapter that had been included solely for use with marine lower units. Its price and availability remain unchanged.

Preferred Customer Kits Upgraded

The Preferred Customer Starter Kits are being overhauled. Upon registration, new Preferred Customers now receive an envelope containing a welcome letter, a catalog, a price list and shipping information. Effective this May, new Preferred Customers will receive the latest issue of AMSOIL Magazine (Preferred Customer Edition) with a special wrap welcoming them to the program. The Magazine and wrap contain all the information they need to get started as AMSOIL P.C.s, including a summary of program benefits, ordering information and a full AMSOIL product catalog.

We will begin sending the new P.C. welcome materials when inventory of the current kits is depleted. Prepaid Preferred Customer Kits (G07PC, G8007PC) are discontinued May 1.

AGGRAND Division of AMSOIL INC. to Cease Operations

AGGRAND products have been a part of AMSOIL business since 1990. However, the fertilizer market has become extremely competitive and price-sensitive, and the AGGRAND division has lost money for years. Unfortunately, our decreasing sales numbers do not justify continuation of the product line. Therefore, following considerable deliberation, we are ceasing operation of the AGGRAND division according to the following timeline:

• AGGRAND production will cease on June 30, 2017.
• AGGRAND production will manufacture enough product to meet historic demand through August 31, 2017. However, if orders exceed historic sales, we cannot guarantee availability and the servicing Dealer will be notified through Sales Order Processing or their local DC.
• Therefore, place your orders by June 1, 2017 to increase your chances of product availability through the end of August.
• Product support via the AGGRAND phone line will be available through Sept. 30, 2017.
• Phone, paper and online ordering will be open to existing AGGRAND Dealers only through August 15, 2017.
