Environmental regulations have created a shift from 2-stroke (2T) engines to 4-stroke (4T) engines in the motorcycle market. 4-stroke motorcycles have a compact design which means they have lubrication requirements different from those of passenger cars. All-in-one 4-stroke oils must not cause clutch slippage during acceleration and should be able to withstand high temperatures and protect parts.
Our products for 4-stroke engines help provide optimum clutch performance in motorcycles; enable outstanding protection to critical parts such as pistons, rings and grooves; and control carbon, lacquer deposits and engine sludge at the high oil temperatures (130°C /271°F) that are reached in air-cooled motorcycles. We also formulate products to help reduce power loss and protect gear parts. These benefits contribute to longer equipment life and help maximize motorcycle engine performance.
Marine outboard engines require maximum reliability from lubricant products. When it comes to 2-stroke (2T) and 4-stroke (4T) water-cooled engine lubricants, we continue to strengthen our leadership in a sector that requires maximum reliability. We develop products for direct fuel injection (DFI) in 2T engines and lubricants meeting the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) FCW-WTM certification for 4T engines.
Our robust field testing proves the product quality of our 2T and 4T water-cooled and 4T water-cooled additives. The test results show that our products reduce ring groove deposits, improve rust control and improve anti-scuff protection.
Oronite is committed to 2T air-cooled engine oil technology that maximizes engine performance and durability while limiting the environmental impact.
Although environmental regulations have impacted both production and design of 2T engines, there are still millions of bikes and scooters with 2T engines on the road. Other segments such as go-karts, snow scooters and chainsaws still use 2T engines because of the power-to-weight advantage. For these engine types, our additives help prevent piston and cylinder scuffing; help prevent piston ring sticking and bearing seizure problems; and minimize spark plug fouling, pre-ignition, exhaust system blockage and excessive smoke.
This video illustrates the difference between modern motorcycle engine and automotive engine design and characteristics. As a result of such differences, a dedicated motorcycle lubricant is required instead of simply using automotive lubricants. Oronite offers a range of dedicated motorcycle/scooter lubricants additives that meet the specifications set by the Japanese Automotive Standards Organization to ensure high performance.
We maintain strong relationships with Japanese and non-Japanese original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) through continued and advanced technical support. We are members of the Japanese Automotive Standards Organization (JASO) committee and participate in Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) activities. Oronite can generate JASO T903 data in given viscosity grades upon request. Our highly experienced development team is supported by state-of-the-art testing capabilities for performance demonstration and differentiation. This advantage in innovative technology is how Oronite adds up for you.
These main tier additive packages are designed for dedicated 4-stroke motorcycle (OLOA 22025) and scooter engine oil (OLOA 22038) application that supports the following performance range: American Petroleum Institute (API) SG, API SJ, API SL (licensable requirements). These products meet JASO MA2 and JASO MB requirements according to JASO T903:2016. Coverage is available in Group II and Group II + Group III base oils and provides strong piston cleanliness, gear pitting and wear performance as well as thermal and oxidative stability.
These main tier additive packages meet JASO T903:2016 requirements. OLOA 22020 meets JASO MB without the addition of a friction modifier and OLOA 22021 meets JASO MA2. These packages boast robust performance and are API SN/SM licensable. They also have broad base oil coverage: Group II, Group III or Group II/Group III mixture. OLOA 22020 is a single additive package for API SN/MB with no addition of a friction modifier and strong test performance.
OLOA 22005 is Oronite’s 4-stroke motorcycle engine oil additive for top-tier lubricants. This product supports a performance range: API SG, API SJ, API SL (licensable requirements) and API SN. It also meets JASO MA2 requirements according to JASO T903:2016 (high friction oils for superior clutch friction) and it meets superior motorcycle performance requirements such as oxidation, detergency and oil consumption needs.
