Some people use the Rotella T6 or T5. From what I've been reading lately though; more and more people are switching to the Spectro Golden 4 Motorycycle oil. It's more expensive than the Rotella but if it works as well as folks are saying; it's worth it.

Yeah, a lot of Victory riders use 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.

I didn't know that Broggy. Good to know! I wonder if Spectro and Polaris have an understanding so Polaris no longer has to have their blend made and bottled.

Here's the link to the Victory approved oil.

I' ve been using Rotella T6 and my bike has never ran better....I am in canada and a search of spectro motor shows no results up here...and I tried to use their website to find a dealer or documentation on it and their site is down...8( So can't speak to the spectro but my Cross Country loves the Rotella...

I'm a T-6 guy because I can pay a lot more, but I ain't gonna get a lot more. Bike runs great on it and analysis after a 7K run showed there were almost 3/k more miles left. What's not to like about T-6 and saving money?
