Default Amsoil 20/40

Amsoil has put out a 20/40 formula designed for new Victory/Indian motors. Is there anything different about new Victory's and Indians that would require Amsoil to design a new formula. It looks as though there are now three companies making 20/40 oil exclusively for these bikes. That would include Amsoil, Golden Spectro, and of course our beloved own home brew.....Victory.

Looks like the specs have changed for the new Amsoil.

20/40 meets API SM, JASO MA, API GL-1 specs and now backed by Amsoils Secure Warranty. (different than the 10w40)

10/40 meets API SG, CG-4, JASO MA/MA2, ISO-L, EMA2, API-GL1 And no mention of secure warranty. Many more specs covered here.

It appears that Polaris may have made changes to 2013 and above Victory and Indian bikes as Amsoil claims the new formula is for 13 and newer models. Older bikes can still use the recommended 10w40

Counter cut gears started in mid 13, but same old clutch

Could be the oil's designed more for Indian. The 111 TS is pictured on the bottle. Are Indian clutches the same as Victory clutches? Could be the new oil is formulated to work with Victory clutches also.

When a company like Amsoil goes as far to put a MC manufacturer on their label it usually means the MC manufacturer approves.....no?
If so then it's got to be a win-win for Indian and Vic owners.
