Increases octane for power and efficiency. It is designed to improve startup performance and eliminate engine ping and knock for increased power at low-rpm operation. Contains detergents that help combustion chambers and fuel delivery systems maintain cleanliness for optimum performance.
When treated at 1.3 oz. per gallon of fuel, Motorcycle Octane Boost increases the octane of gasoline up to three numbers. Increased octane improves power and can eliminate performance-robbing and potentially damaging engine knock or ping (see below).
Engine knock is especially noticeable in some motorcycles during idle or low-rpm operation and high-temperature driving. Most modern bikes are equipped with sophisticated knock-detection systems that can alter spark timing and the air-to-fuel mixture until knock ceases. Although these systems protect the engine from damage, they can also cause reduced horsepower and poor low-rpm operability. AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost helps reduce the need for knock-detection systems to compensate, ensuring maximum low-rpm power and performance in modern bikes.
Because Motorcycle Octane Boost contains active detergents, it can help maintain efficiency. For clean up, however, AMSOIL recommends treating gasoline with AMSOIL Quickshot®, which contains a greater concentration of cleaning agents.
The tendency of a hydrocarbon fuel, such as gasoline, to knock is measured by its octane number. Lower numbers denote a greater knock tendency; higher numbers denote greater knock control. Engine knock is a reference to the sound made from an uncontrolled and early ignition of fuel in the combustion chamber. It causes a knocking or pinging sound, robs the engine of power and can cause catastrophic engine damage. Knock may be eliminated by increasing the fuel's octane.
What is Research Octane Number?
Research Octane Number (RON), Motor Octane Number (MON) and Anti-Knock Index (AKI) are the three most common octane ratings. AKI, the rating with which most North American motorists are familiar, is typically displayed on gas pumps as the average of the fuel's RON and MON [(R+M)/2]. RON, however, is the most common industry rating. Therefore, AMSOIL uses the RON rating when conducting performance tests and product validation. Gasoline's RON generally is a few numbers higher than the AKI posted on the gas pump (e.g. 87 octane fuel, or regular pump gas, has a RON of about 91-92).
When marketing their products, some additive manufacturers have adopted a points system where 10 points equals one octane number. A claim that an additive increases octane 30 points translates into an increase of three octane numbers. This approach is often used only to artificially strengthen marketing claims and is not endorsed by AMSOIL.
One 4-oz. bottle of AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost treats four to six gallons of gasoline. Slight overtreatment causes no issues,
Motorcycle Octane Boost is primarily recommended for use in four-stroke air- or liquid-cooled motorcycles manufactured by Harley-Davidson®, Yamaha®, Honda®, Ducati®, BMW®, Triumph® and all other four-stroke motorcycles. It may be used in off-road applications, including ATVs, UTVs and snowmobiles, as an alternative to AMSOIL DOMINATOR® Octane Boost. Note: Clean spills immediately using a clean towel. If left standing, Motorcycle Octane Boost can stain painted or metal surfaces. If cleaned immediately, there is no need for concern.
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). An MSDS is available via the Internet at www.amsoil.com or upon request at (715) 392-7101. Keep Out of Reach of Children. Don't pollute.

AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost is a fuel additive designed to increase octane in fuel. Higher octane fuel can lead to more powerful and efficient engine operation. Motorcycle Octane Boost also cleans combustion chamber deposits for increased performance at startup and helps eliminate engine ping or knock for more power at low RPM acceleration.
Motorcycle Octane Boost is primarily recommended for use in four‐stroke air‐ or liquid‐cooled motorcycles. Motorcycle Octane Boost is formulated for motorcycles manufactured by: Harley‐Davidson, Yamaha, Honda, Ducati, BMW, Triumph and all other four‐stroke motorcycles. It may be used in off‐road applications, including ATVs, UTVs and snowmobiles, as an alternative to DOMINATOR® Octane Boost (AOB).
Motorcycle Octane Boost is registered by the Environmental Protection Agency and legal for street use, while Dominator Octane Boost is formulated for off‐road use only.
Deposits frequently form in motorcycle engines and Motorcycle Octane Boost contains active detergents that clean deposits in combustion chambers and fuel delivery systems, helping improve fuel economy and overall performance. Motorcycle Octane Boost also helps protect fuel delivery systems from corrosion.
AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost typically responds better in lower octane fuel and in fuel that contains ethanol. When treated at 1.3 fluid ounces per gallon in 92.6 Research Octane Number (RON) unleaded gasoline with 10% ethanol, Motorcycle Octane Boost increases fuel up to 3 RON, boosting 92.6 RON fuel up to 95.6 RON.
One 4 ounce bottle of AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost treats four to six gallons of gasoline. Slight over treatment causes no issues, but significant over treatment is not recommended.
Yes, at the recommended treat rate Motorcycle Octane Boost is registered with the EPA and is safe for use with catalysts and O₂ sensors.
Yes, Motorcycle Octane Boost is compatible with other AMSOIL fuel additives, including Quickshot (AQS) and Gasoline Stabilizer (AST). Motorcycle Octane Boost does not contain a fuel stabilizing agent. AMSOIL recommends treating fuel with Gasoline Stabilizer for long term storage.
AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost contains the active ingredient methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT) and is designated as hazardous. Do not directly expose product to skin. Please follow all warnings and instructions for use on the label and/or MSDS found at www.AMSOIL.com.
Clean spills immediately using a clean towel. If left standing, Motorcycle Octane Boost can stain painted or metal surfaces. If cleaned immediately, there is no need for concern.
The shelf life is two years when stored under the ambient conditions normally found in air conditioned facilities.
