Purolator Pure-1: PL14610, PL14612 is the best filter out there. I did some internet research and found a guys site that showed all brands taken apart. Pure One is the winner! I used the long one. Advanced Auto has 'em for $7.
I am now running a K & P reusable filter to save money over the long run. I got mine from Scott at Conquest Customs.

I run Rotella T synthetic (blue jug) goes for about 20 bucks a gallon at Walmart. Buy 2 gallons and you have 2 oil changes worth of oil.

I have 2 2 "X 8" pieces of wood doubled up and angle cut to roll the bike onto to get it high enough to get the oil change pan under the bike. I put one in front of the front wheel and one in front of the back wheel and ride the bike up onto them. Also I have a square piece of 2" X 8" doubled up to set the kick stand on. I didn't take a picture of it but the pic I took of the ramp boards gives you an idea of how to make them.
I have a 2002 Classic Deluxe so I have been doing this for years.

You are looking at $54 for 2 oil changes instead of $100 for 2 changes if you buy the Victory kit or $200+ to pay a dealer.
It's a no brainer.

What grade do you use. Ive been thinking about trying the rotella, but can only find 15-40 at the local wal mart and advanced auto didn't have the 20-40 either.

Changed oil, went with the Rotella 5-40 full syn. and the fram 7317 oil filter. Bike is quieter and shifts smoother/quieter. Anxious to see what it looks like in 3k. cost less than $30.

I wouldn't use the Fram in the future. They were rated the worst on that website I found that I mentioned in my first post.

Yes, Fram is a terrible filter. Not only in construction quality, but it only has about a 36-42 Micron Rating Nominal. The human eye can see to approximately 40 Micron.

65% of wear caused by dirt is caused by particles in the 5-25 Micron Range.

You cannot buy a better filter than the AMSOIL EA Series which is conservatively rated at 15 Micron Absolute.

There are 2 filters for a Vic. EAOM-103 and EAO-13 depending on model.
