So this weekend was the first time this year I have had the time and desire to change the oil on the bike. Since I had the tank off to do the LLoydz air filter maintenance I went ahead and did the air shock valve relocation I have been wanting to do. Photo attached. On the way home from work on Friday I stopped at the local Amsoil DC and got 5qt of the GASP!, hold your breath! OMG my bike is gonna blow up! Amsoil 15w-60!!!! Relax, even Victory recommended 60w synthetic oil starting in late '16. After installing this vile fluid of death I went for a ride and I am happy to report that the motorcycle didn't blow up! I can report that the valve train noise was far less noticeable and clutch performance was superior. I plan on sending a sample of the old Mobil 1 to blackstone to see what it sheared to.
