Help Customers Store Equipment with Confidence

Fall is in full swing and your customers are thinking about getting summer equipment put away before winter hits, but many may be unaware of the problems that can occur during extended storage periods. Preventive maintenance is critical before storing equipment for any extended period. Properly storing equipment through the cold winter months protects the engine, prevents rust and prepares the equipment for action when spring rolls back around. With the right lubrication and fuel additives, you’re on the right track to helping your customers protect their equipment, while presenting great door-openers for gaining new customers.

See the October AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Ea15K88 Filter Dealer Inventory Suitable for Use, DC Inventory Available in Early October

The manufacturing issue affecting Ea15K88 Oil Filters has been resolved. After extensive testing, AMSOIL and its filtration partners determined the defect affected only the newest batch of filters. Those filters never left AMSOIL distribution centers; they were quarantined and destroyed. The filters in the field are suitable for normal use and Dealers can resume sales of those filters without concern. New Ea15K88 Filters will be available for purchase from AMSOIL in early October. Check the Dealer Zone for additional updates on timing.

AMSOIL Keeps Sturgis Cool

Hundreds of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts made the trek to Sturgis, S.D. in August for the 2014 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The historic bike rally hosts a jam-packed week of entertainment with bike shows, racing, burnout events, concerts and more. AMSOIL returned as the Official Oil for the 74th annual rally, and this year became the exclusive Official Oil of the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground, which hosted rounds 11 and 12 of the TORC Series presented by AMSOIL.

AMSOIL retained its larger booth footprint on Main Street this year, and added two more oil-change locations to serve the growing number of bikers who wanted AMSOIL products installed in their motorcycles.

See the September AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

EA15K88 Sales Temporarily Suspended

A manufacturing issue has been discovered in current inventory of Ea15K88 Oil Filters. AMSOIL has temporarily discontinued sales of the filter until a solution is reached with the filtration partner that manufactured the filter. Dealers who have Ea15K88 Filters in stock should also suspend sales until further notice. Please do not return filters to AMSOIL at this time; instructions for returns will be provided once it has been determined whether the issue has affected filters currently in the field. Customers with an Ea15K88 filter currently installed can continue using the filter at the normally prescribed interval. Watch the Dealer Zone for updates as the situation develops.

$0.50 per filter less than 8” in length
