Oil change interval, 2500 or 5000
Hi, my motor oil was changed about 2500 mile ago. The service department where I bought my bike, and with the maintenance package, says that Victory recently changed their motor oil interval schedule from 2500 to 5000 miles. So going by this I have another 2500 miles before my next oil change.
Now the issue.. I checked my oil today which looked dark, so I drained about a half cup oil to check it closer. The oil is nearly black. So I am questioning now how valid the 5000 interval is that I was told.
So is 5000 miles really the current interval, or am I being told wrong. I have 2008 Hammer with 100’ motor. I'd hate to think the service department didn't change my oil last time due to the interval change, probably not the case, but just being cautious.
