Have over a hundred miles on it and no problems. No slippage nothing. Great so far and if anything differs will let you know.

Default oil chg

Thought about Ams Oil but wanted something I could get right now if needed and didnt want the expen. of having to order extra to have on hand in case I forgot and need to change oil. Also on the road I dont like to mix different types of oil should I need to add.

Thumbs up

I changed my oil at 10,000 mile after 5,000 using the Vic oil and noticed that the shifting and transmission were much better. I guess dirty oil really gets to these machines. Great Bike.

I just had my 500 mile service done and now have about 1000 miles on my bike. I'm thinking about draining the oil and installing the magnetic drain plug I purchased from Witchdoctors and then dumping the oil back in.
