It is maid for motorcycle and atv's. It is a synthetic oil they have 10w40 and 20w50. I was wondering because it is suppose to reduce tempature increase power and performance? What is your opinion on this oil???

Pics of the oil and I did some research at what do you guys think?
They also have a video of a custom chopper on
Royal Purple

All oils are not created
equally undefined


Oil is not something we think of as a performance enhancer, unless you’re serious about maintaining a strong engine with long lasting performance. Royalundefined Purple is a company that strives to produce lubricants that provide the highest level of performance possible. Because Royal Purple's sole focus is to create state-of-the-art lubricants that are of the highest quality their developers can produce. All oils are not created equally, there are so many variables. As with everything else in this world, when it comes to lubricant you get what you pay for, expensive oils produce better results. A performance oil should have good film strength or the ability to build up on parts, be well filtered and hold up to heat. Film strength is a lubricant property that acts to prevent scuffing or scoring of metal parts. Film strength is measured by the American Society for Testing Materials' (ASTM) Timken OK Load test, which measures the heaviest load that a lubricant will sustain without scoring the test block. Royal Purple's film strength is up to 400 percent stronger than other synthetics, which greatly reduces wear and extends equipment life. Royal Purple has the ability to outperform leading synthetic-based and mineral-based oils. The secret is Synerlec®, part of Royal Purple's entire line of products. Synerlec® is Royal Purple's proprietary, lubricant additive technology that strengthens the oil film to provide extra protection and performance. Synerlec® continuously adheres to metal parts, even after shutdown. The thin film of oil that remains after shutdown preserves parts and provides instant lubrication at start-up until a full fluid oil film can be established. Our testing indicated that cold weather starts became easier with the Royal Purple oils. The primary purpose of any lubricant is to reduce friction. The lubrication reductions friction and can increase equipment performance and extend engine life.

Royal Purple micro-polishes asperities which are irregularities on bearing surfaces, using Royal Purple can reduce friction and smooth the bearing surface creating less friction and improving durability. Many lubricants have a short service life because they lack oxidation stability. Oxidation causes increased viscosity and oxidized oil deposits. A product's ability to resist oxidation is measured by the ASTM's Turbine Oil Stability Test (TOST) andundefined Dry Air Oxidation test and the ASTM’s Thin Film Oxidation Uptake Test (TFOUT). Royal Purple not only surpasses leading mineral-based and synthetic-based oils in these tests but also outlasts the duration of the TFOUT test. Royal Purple's superior oxidation stability and its ability to clean deposits left by previous oils can results in fewer oil changes, saving time, money and the environment. Royal Purple lubricants are filtered to produce a clean product with better quality. Royal Purple's lubricants are packaged in new, clean poly drums, pails and bottles to ensure that product cleanliness is maintained from blend to delivery. Couple this with Royal Purple's state-of-the-art precision blends, and you'll always receive the same, dependable product each and every time. Using Royal Purple should make an immediate difference, helping to keep your engines running for a long time. Equipment reliability should increase and produce reductions in energy and maintenance costs. The ATV Connection now uses Royal Purple products and plans on making Royal Purple Products the Official ATV Connection lubricant of choice. Check back with us as we continuously update our long term evaluation of the Royal Purple products. We are interested in long term durability, heat and viscosity loss and any other findings we encounter along the way.

So what do you guys think yes or no. I have done some research tonight I am thinking of useing this oil. This summer the are talking about record breaking heat and I want my foreman to run smooth and low temps. I work at napa and they started to carry this royal purple oil. I herd good about it. But I was wondering if any body else used it. I want to know if anybody else used it?
Another research description I found

Product Description
Max-Cycle is specifically formulated to significantly improve motorcycle engine (and transmission) performance. Its recommended for use in both air-cooled and liquid-cooled 4-cycle engines and its compatible with wet-clutch transmissions. Formulated with select synthetic base oils and Royal Purples proprietary Synerlec additive technology, Max-Cycle provides unparalleled film strength that is up to 400 percent stronger than the leading synthetic and mineral oils. Its shear stability and oxidation resistance promote greater performance and protection. Synerlec 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.

one of my customers switched there fleet of tree trucke to purple there sailesman sold them a bill of goods. Do not put in a older vehcal it will coast you a moter if you start with a new one it should be fine .when Asplen switchthere fleet over 10,000 trucks insaid of 6 mounths it killed 500 moters in old trucks the new trucks were fine.
If it's expensive why switch, unless I guess your loaded. If you like to ride in water you will always take a chance in getting water in your oil.
If you're looking for a good synthetic check out Amsoil. I personally run it and have never had any problems. I run this stuff:

<a href="" target="_blank"></a>
I'm with Eric,Amsoil is good oil.I use the 0W-40 Amsoil synthetic.My local NAPA store sells it. It really made a difference in the way my wife's Recon ES shifts.
My buddy runs it in his 4runner. He likes it more than Amsoil. He was trying to get me to run it, but I stick with Mobil 1 (the original high $ recipe) in my Tundra. I have no idea about running it in an ATV.
I have bought the oil and I am going to see if their are any temp different. I am going to let the foreman run for a good hour check the temps then change the oil. Ride the foreman for about 2hrs. and do check the temps and find out what the temps are from their I will let you guys know how it goes.
I finally put the royal purple in the foreman. It does run a bit cooler and the other thing that I notice was the shifting was a lot smoother. The oil really has not taken all in effect because I really think I have to waite till the next time I change it to really flush out all the old and new oil but I can tell a difference already my motor is running 260 to 280 degrees and it has been around 60 here in NC.
