I will second that. Years ago, Motorcycle Consumer News did an exhaustive comparo of a couple dozen MC and auto oils. At a chemistry lab, each was analyzed for additive contents and endurance. The mag showed all the results in bar charts and the results were surprising. Some cheaper auto oils had a better additive package than MC oils. Prolly not applicable to what the results would be today, so my advice would be to look for the JASO-MA2 rating on the jug.

Surely not debate about Oil .. But Used OEM for all the 80,000 Miles put on my Cross Country other than did have some Amsoil 20W50 sitting around decided to give it a try with no bad results other than Clutch would slip a but at High RPM's shifting so went back to OEM with No Problems and never used Oil between changes the Full Life of the 4 1/2 Years and 80,000 Miles I owned it and Still Running Great when Traded It ..

By Amsoil studies Victory oil is extremely good oil. The greats difference in be twin the 2 is Amsoil is a little higher in zinc additives. I've used Amsoil a lot and have never had any issues with it.

Riding: 2011 XC
Sold: 2003 Vegas
Totaled: 2003 TC, But it's still on the road.
Sold: 2004 TC
This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

And what oil out there for Vics has had issues? The answer would be none. Put in what Polaris calls for or better, change it when you should, enjoy riding your sweet Victory!
