Just had my bike serviced dealer drained the Ams 10/40 which had done about 1200 miles no problem with that I like clean oil and refilled with Vic oil and straight away I notice a marked increase in heat from the engine in traffic which says to me more friction going on in engine as this is where most engine heat comes from so I will run this oil for a 1000 miles to get some value from it then its back to Ams:)

In the UK there is not much difference in price but the Ams importer often does sales on the oils he sells and when he offered a 20 per cent discount on anything I bought 20 quarts which should last me a couple of years even with my clean oil fetish:).

It has to be a mental problem. That much heat generated by friction due to inadequate lubrication would quickly render your engine scrap. JMHO

Just my personal findings I am sure the Vic oil is fine but its just noticeably cooler on Ams oil gear change is no different and no difference in noise levels but I do change my oil often so its always in good condition:)
