Full-Synthetic 4-Stroke Adventure Motorcycle Oil
AimHi Performance is proud to offer a premium full-synthetic motorcycle oil directly to the ADV crowd
How did this come about?
At one of the first RMAR events I won some of this oil. I really liked it but could not buy it anywhere - Royal only sells wholesale or private label - you know that stuff at your bike store that goes for $11 - $17. I approached the factory and they signed me up to market directly on the internet.
Who is Royal Mfg?
Royal Mfg Co, at the dawn of celebrating 100 years in business, is a leading manufacturer and marketer of lubricants and greases in the United States and around the world, both in Royal brand and private label manufacturing. A registered ISO 9001:2008 company, Royal has two manufacturing locations; Tulsa, OK and San Antonio, Texas, with a combined annual production capacity of over 50 million gallons of lubricating oil and over 60 million pounds of lubricating grease.
Royal is an industrial oil manufacturer that specializes in supplying other oil companies with full synthetic base oils. They also supply to large industries such as mines, marine fleets and the railway systems around the world. Now you can have industrial strength oil for your motorcycle.
Ok, so can you beat the other high $ oils?
This became a project.... we ran our own oil tests and felt that in order to compete and beat the high $ import oil we need to change the formulation. Feedback from ADV riders also contributed to the final result. The new oil from Royal Mfg. include POA's and a stong additive pack with high rates of zinc, however not toxic levels for the CAT on your bike, We don't use fancy bottles, you have to pay for that + it does not make your bike run better.
Take a look at the VOA below and customer posted oil analysis tests. Extreme flash points (less oil burning away) and high additive numbers.
Royal Mfg. is 100% family owned and does not have to send profits to multimillion dollar international stockholders, so they can keep the price down. I also comes straight from the factory so there is no three or four tier distribution system.

"By accident, I was introduced to Monarch Motorcycle oil by Royal Mfg. At the beginning of a multi-day adventure motorcycle ride on my Honda XR650R (know to 'eat' and 'tear up' oil), I accidentally left my oil fill cap off the bike and started it. Well, oil flew everywhere....and I had no idea how much I had lost. A fellow rider (employee of Royal), happened to have some quarts of their synthetic 15w50 in his pickup. Not wanting to mix oils, by simply topping off, I drained the remaining oil I had and poured in the Monarch oil. After three, very hard days of riding, climbing high mountain passes, pushing the engine to very high temps....I didn't notice that I had burned any oil at all. Consumption was near zero. I have since put the oil in my VStrom (which has always burned oil on 75 mph interstate runs) and haven't noticed any consumption either. The bikes run really smooth and I am very happy with Monarch oil. Also, with the price at just over $6 a quart, it beats the heck out of $8, $10 and $12 oils. It will be poured in all my bikes from this point forward."

Thank you for the feedback John. Appreciate the testimonial and the business. I challenge others to review the spec sheets and compare flash points etc. against the other top makes. You will find that it performs just as well if not better.
Sounds promising! A Note: The MSDS links for the 20/50 semi synth and the 15w50 Super Syn are disabled. I really would like to thoroughly read this before buying.
I encourage everyone to give this oil a try. You will not be sorry. This oil is a very high grade synthetic and their 15w50 will easily cross over to bikes asking for 10w40 (like my VStrom).
Couple of reasons to use Monarch 15w50 Motorcycle.....
1. The purchase directly benefits two men, that are in the business and fellow ADV'ers.
2. A percentage of the profits are being contributed to COHVCO.
3. It will stand side-by-side with Royal Purple, except it doesn't cost $14 a quart.
4. Most of us are not Tribologists, but the 'oil analysis' is most interesting to view. Flash points, very high TBN values and the ability of this oil to avoid shear, staying in grade is phenomenal!!!!
The MSDS is the Material Safety Data Sheet and is typically for people concerned with storage, hazard spec's, first aid, fire fighting requirements etc. If you would like to see it I can get the factory to provide no problem, just let me know.
The oil performance data is on the PDS which is the Product Data Sheet
My main reason for asking about the MSDS is purely from an oil formulation standpoint. The bulk of manufacturers play fast and loose with the phrase "full synthetic" yet their oils are for the most part, Hydro-cracked conventional oils (termed "severely refined" on the MSDS) , and have some synthetic additive package. I'm not accusing Monarch of any trickery, I just thought it odd that they didn't have a valid link to a PDF of the MSDS on the site, that's all. I'd be curious about the oil's TBN, as well....I geuss mostly because I'm a bit of a nerd :lol3
Are the Monarch oils true PAO synthetics? Given the price, it would be a great bargain if they were!! I'd love to try it in my KLR, or my 80K mile, 30 years old Suzuki GS1100EZ, for that matter.
All that said, I'd love a look see at the MSDS if possible.
Sure thing I have already requested the MSDS and the TBN's from their lab which is Riverside Laboratories http://www.royalmfg.com/riversidelab.html
Here is the top section of the Product Data Sheet and YES this is a bargain. You can buy the rebranded stuff for double if you want :lol3
I'll let the lab answer it since I am no oil engineer or "Tribologist" as John would say :deal
Zinc PPM & PAO base oil
Hi - These are all great questions!
I have word back on the Zinc PPM from Royal Mfg and it 1371ppm which is high - which is good. I am still waiting for the MSDS but as you can see on the label it clearly states PAO (polyalpha-olephin) true synthetic base oil being used.

The Zinc content of our Monarch Super Syn 15/50 motorcycle oil is around 1371ppm based on average blend results. Hope this will help in answering your question.
How does your oil compair to other top end oils? Like Mobil 1 full synth or motorx? I am an oil noob when it comes to high end oils for bikes. My bike requires 10/50 motorx full synth. That's what the mfg suggests. Thanks
Hi MIghty- The Monarch Royal Super Syn Full Synthetic 15/50 compares great agains other synthetic oils if you look at the product data sheets. I am not going to downgrade the value of any other specific products since it is not fair, unless we engage them on this forum - which I am not going to do.
Some of the other ADV'rs have requested some information on the Zinc PPM which is high (think - cam wear) including the fact that they us a POA base unlike many other oil companies. Feel free to check out info at these sites to learn more:
I will also have our oil expert Scrambler Davis chime in on this ok.
PAO base oil is clear indicator that it is indeed a true synth formulation. Thanks, aimhi!!! And yeah, 1371 PPM for Zinc is high!! this is looking better and better :nod
can you post a voa or uoa?

15W-50 the only available grade? My OldWing would kinda choke on that.
If you want to run one I can ship you a couple quarts on my dime NP if you publish the results here.
