Oil Change Intrervals
2011 Victory Cross Country. I have about 3,500 miles on this oil change. Here in the last week the engine has started getting a little noisey. With some of my past machines the increased noise was an indicator to me that it was time for an oil change. Some machines would stay quite regardless of the miles, where others will only get to 3K before telling me it’s time for an oil change.
So yesterday I went to the local dealer to buy a Victory oil change kit. The last one cost me $60… OK. But this one cost me $80!!!! Not all that bad considering what you get. But dang, a $20 jump?
Which leads to my questions… For those of you who have the 2011 and up 106ci engine and are using Victory oil:
- Do you notice more noise as the oil gets old(er)?
- If so, how many miles before you start to hear it?
- How often are you changing the oil?
Thanks in advance.
