Can't speak for everyone but in my case shifting is smoother and quieter than with Vic oil. Use 10-40 MCF. I switched on the advice of my dealer due to the 100+ deg temps out here. He had nothing to gain as I bought it online and put it in myself.

I'm sorry but if you do a search you will find five days of reading about oil.
Guys use about four different types you just have to read what you like.
Yes I use Amsoil and love it

AMSOIL MCF 10W-40 Motorcycle Specific Oil is the proper product for all Vics in riding conditions from 30 degrees to 100+

The EAOM-103 oil filter is the proper filter

about 8 years ago, a friend recommended AMSOil, and at the time I had been fairly loyal to Spectro. I was riding a 1997 Honda CBR900RR at that time. so after a bit of nagging, I switched over to the full synthetic AMSOil in the recommended weight and was using a K&N oil filter. I haven't looked back or regretted the decision to use AMSOil. I will gladly pay the extra because it was like night and day and goes in every vehicle I drive. I am not a dealer or get anything from this, but I do recommend it to anyone who asks. the local parts shop I get it at charges around $12-$13 a quart but i think its worth it.
My only question, is anyone running full synthetic in their victory? I have an 06 Hammer and I remember reading something about not using full synthetic because it could cause the clutch to slip....

AMSOil is liquid gold but soooooo worth it.

you got your jesus on the dashboard, the devil's under my hood. you're takin' down to legal, i'm pulling it up to no good.
god is your co-pilot, i let satan ride shotgun, you pay a toll to get to heaven, but on the road to hell there's none..... \m/ \m/

Guess you have been running Amsoil Organic or maybe Mineral
guess you have never read the information on the bottle

You are paying too much but that is up to you.

AMSOIL MCF 10W-40 is the proper oil for a Vic, it is 100% Synthetic as all of our M/C oils.

AMSOIL does have a blended oil but, not for Motorcycles.

The AMSOIL filter part # is EAOM-103
