Default Used the AMSOIL distributer

Just wanted to let you guys know that even though some of the links reguarding the AMSoil forum distributer seem old, I was able to reach him by his email. His name is Bob Schultz and even though he was at a show promoting his product, he took the time to take my order (6 guarts of 20w50 and an amsoil filter) for my 05 kingpin.
Total of everything 76.00. No shipping charge , just tax and the product. I think the oil filter from amsoil was about 12-14 dollars which up'd the price a bit but I think i received a much better deal then going to the actual amsoil site where my purchase was closer to 90.00

Id recommend Bob to whomever likes that oil. He's a good guy.

Your profile doesn't say where you live so I don't know but I went to fleet farm to day and paid $10.45 a quart. You can go to auto zone and buy a purolator oil filter for $9.95.
Amsoil doesn't screw up clutches. You can not keep changing different brads of oil in your bike. That's what makes clutches go bad. Barnett the largest clutch plate manufacture for motorcycle tells you that amsoil does not hurt there plates. Mater of fact die fram clutch spring and clutch come out of cars.

sorry fellas, just now took the time to complete some personal information about myself. Im in San Antonio Texas. The bike in my profile is the 05 kingpin I just bought a month ago. There was no previous information about the service on this bike except that it was lady driven and she took care of it and had it serviced at a yamaha dealership where she worked. I dont even know what kind of oil they put in it before I bought it. It does have a polaris oil filter.

For right know, im just a casual driver, that is until I cant afford to keep my truck filled up with the price of gas. I thought AMSoil was a solid rated oil and after reading tons of posts on here, figured id go with that and stay that way. I try to treat my vehicles right and take care of them. I think I payed about $10 a quart and chose to pay $14 for the amsoil premium filter.

Many Vics do not like full synth oils of any brand, and it DOES cause slipping with agressive riders. Seen it to many times.

Please point out any car that uses a wet clutch in a manual transmission. Auto trans systems lock up multiple packs with a hydraulicly aplied pressure plate a good 3-4 times the force available on our bikes

welcome noobie , amsoil is gud stuff, i have used it in my other non vic bike with no problems, after the breakin i have used it entirely in my 09 Vegas engine is quieter, trans shifts sweet, and some people say they have a hard time finding neutral, they should ride mine , finding neutral is a breeze.

Ok Kevin. I don't convince easily but I trust you so from now on I'm using Victory Brand oil.

Damn it man! I was saving some money till now Kevin!!

Thanks though; the last thing any of us want to do is trash our engine's because we didn't listen to the folks that know best.

Kinda interesting how the Vic motor's are so different from many of the other V-Twin's on the market right now.

Thanks again for keeping us (know-it-all's) in line with this (new-to-us) V-Twin.

There are several good semi synth oils on the market, and I have never seen or heard of a semi causing clutch issues
