Schaeffer Oil Reviewed
So many synthetic oils are so good nowadays and they all hold to the same standards that are really hard to choose which one is the best. One of the brands that I really want to share with you in this blog post is the Schaeffer Oil Product. But first let us know what the use of this oil is and why we should need it.
What is Synthetic Oil?
Synthetic oils are synthesized from raw products and are used as an effective and specifically designed lubricant for engines. They are manufactured by chemically altering crude oil.
Conventional mineral oils contain large impurities like sulfur and hydrocarbons and unwanted contaminants which are more reactive, unstable and less eco-friendly. Also, these could not be fully removed by traditional crude oil refining methodology. Also, there occurs a need for efficient oil lubricants for high performing vehicles in recent years. Owing to these needs, synthetic oils come into picture.
Although synthetic oil was developed in 1929 for the first time, due to recent developments in technology and easy access to mineral resources, synthetic oils have been graded up. It is being used in jets, machinery, high-performing vehicles and now, in consumer vehicles too.
Highly refined base oils available in synthetic lubricant provide powerful protection and guarantee higher performance and a longevity usage for many years rather than conventional mineral oils.
Why Synthetic Oil is needed?
The main function of engine oil synthetic is to diminish metal-to-metal contact thereby reducing friction and wear. Heat is generated out of friction that again leads to high wear and damages the moving engine parts after a certain period. The oil also regulates the engine’s temperature. Engine oil synthetic removes sludge throughout the engine. The engine will freeze up without oil.
It also gives you the longest life out of your engine. It is protecting the engine and these are not designed to extend the oil change interval that remains relatively.
Now we already know the uses and why we need this kind of oil for our vehicles. Let us now proceed to the brand which I decided to make a review.
About The Schaeffer Oil
Schaeffer has been in business since 1839.
Schaeffer’s synthetic oils provide strong engine durability and fuel economy benefits, allowing you to maximize your equipment’s performance and return on investment.
As conditions intensify, this high performance racing oil resists thinning, and shields critical engine parts from heat and wear. With its high detergency and dispercency, our racing oil suppresses the formation of deposits, sludge and varnish and provides exceptional keep-clean performance.
What are the benefits?
Strong Oxidation and Thermal Stability
Schaeffer’s robust oils resist breaking down in higher operating temperatures, allowing your equipment to consistently run effectively.
Superior Soot Busting Performance
Blended with enhanced detergent and dispersant additives, their oils shield your engine from low temperature sludge buildup and high temperature deposits.
Reduces Wear, Scuffing and Abrasion
Schaeffer’s oils are formulated with proprietary friction modifiers Micron Moly and Penetro to reduce wear and friction on bearings, rings, pistons, cylinders and valve-trains.
Cold Weather Startup Protection
As temperatures drop, Schaeffer’s synthetic oils still flow freely and quickly circulate throughout your engine the moment it starts. Our full synthetic oils provide maximum cold weather startup protection in temperatures as low as -40°.
Couple of years ago this synthetic oil really started to take over for all brands, Harley included. One of the biggest one I see on the market now that everyone wants to talk about is Schaeffer.
Schaeffer 0707-012 Extreme V-Twin Synthetic Plus Racing Oil 20w-50
Extreme V-Twin Synthetic Plus is highly advanced, premium quality, multi-grade para-synthetic, high zinc containing, 4-stroke engine oil formulated specifically for V-Twin engines. It can also be used in most motorcycles designed with a common engine/transmission lubrication system.
Whether you’re pushing your bike to the limit in extreme racing situations or enjoying an easy ride, Extreme V-Twin Synthetic Plus protects critical engine parts from wear. This sophisticated engine oil is engineered with severely hydro-treated polyalphaolefin (PAO) synthetic base oils; severely raffinate hydro converted Group II Plus, a proprietary additive package, proven friction modifiers Micron Moly and Penetro and a viscosity index improver. With high detergency and dispercency, our V-Twin oil suppresses the formation of deposits, sludge and varnish and provides exceptional keep-clean performance.
Recommended for use in most 4-cycle air-cooled or water-cooled motorcycle and ATV engines, including those motorcycles that have a common sump for the engine and transmission (non-metallic clutches only). Not recommended for use in those motorcycle and ATV applications that specify engine oil that meets JASO MA or MB.
- Meets Harley-Davidson V-Twin specifications and JASO (T903) MA-2.
- Significantly reduces wear.
- Excellent high temperature, high shears performance.
- Reduced oil ageing for increased drain intervals.
- Resists thinning at high temperatures.

- Compatibility with all types of seals.
- Flows better to lubricate and cool V-Twin engines.
Extreme V-Twin Oil Synthetic Plus 20W-50 is sophisticated engine oil designed to meet the demands of V-Twin, air-cooled and high performance engines (non-metallic clutches). Schaeffer’s Extreme V-Twin Oil is engineered with severely hydrotreated PAO synthetic base oils, severely raffinate hydro converted Group II Plus, a proprietary additive package, proven friction modifiers Micron Moly and Penetro and a viscosity index improver.

Schaeffer’s Extreme V-Twin Oil helps keep engines exceptionally clean and protects against rust and corrosion. Not recommended for 4-cycle, ATV or motorcycle engines specifying a JASO MA or MB, NMMA FC or FC-W 4-cycle oils.
In my opinion, I’m still going to run Schaeffer Extreme V-Twin Synthetic Plus Racing Oil 20w-50 out of convenience and that is the biggest thing about what all choose to be honest with you is convenience. Do you like to hunt all over the town? Do you order an oil change kit from the internet and they send you everything you need? I know you still have questions about it. The reality is it is convenient to get, it is not too incredibly expensive and it is actually made for an American V-twin engine you are good to go. Just make sure your motorcycle has oil in it.
Even Schaeffer makes their V-twin motorcycle oil because companies like Schaeffer make oil for a lot of things. It is important to get the one that is for an air-cooled engine. They just run hotter than a liquid-cooled engine and that is why if you use non air-cooled oil it is going to burn up and not do its job like it is supposed to. The whole point of having the oil is to lubricate surfaces and to keep it at a cooler temperature. Anything that is going to break down once at its operating temperature of over 200 degrees is a bad idea.
If you have a Schaeffer dealership close to you then that is a pretty good place to stop off and buy this oil. The benefits of running other brands and like that in the past, that they were thicker synthetic oil. I think Schaeffer figured out a way to have the right thing for the right holes.
To be honest with you, I don’t have any opinion on what brand of synthetic oil you like to put in your motorcycles. I just go ahead and break down what is the best oil for your motorcycle. The most important thing is that your engine has oil and it is good to operate it at the temperatures that you are attempting to operate your motorcycle in.
