I wouldn't use the Fram in the future. They were rated the worst on that website I found that I mentioned in my first post.Changed oil, went with the Rotella 5-40 full syn. and the fram 7317 oil filter. Bike is quieter and shifts smoother/quieter. Anxious to see what it looks like in 3k. cost less than $30.
Yes, people have had a problem... When using an automotive or diesel oil with the wrong specifications.I have heard rumors of full synthetic causing clutch slip. I have my first oil change comming up and was wondering how true this was (I personally dont see it) The book calls for a semi-synthetic, but I like a full myself. I will start with a semi though as the previous owner ran conventional. I am on a 2002 92VC
Any of you guys on a 92ci ever had a problem with full synthetic and clutch slip?
Bill,I have been using the Rotella full syn for about 10k miles now and no problems. The 1st time I used it I was on a trip and went 5600 miles. changed it when I got home and it looked just slightly darker than when I put it in. Pulled my trailer over the Bighorn Mt. and over Beartooth Pass in WY/MT which is close to 11,000 ft. No slipping. Engine is quieter and shifts soooo much better. I have no personal experience with Amsoil, One guy told me it slipped one guy said the clutch was really"grabby" Maybe they weren't using the right stuff. Again, this is only what I was told. Alot of guys use it. I think next time I am going to look for the Mobil 1V-Twin oil. Hope this helps.
No sir.. You are doing nothing wrong. I have questioned that myself as I have a Vic Dealership as a customer.. The 13 filter is slightly longer than the 103. I never got clarification on that but by cross referencing as you have done, The 13 is the match for the 51356 and the 103 is the match to a 51358.Okay, thanks, Bob, I appreciate the info. I'm confused, though, about the EAO / EAOM applications. When I go to the Amsoil site, it doesn't have an Amsoil filter listed for my 2006 Vegas Jackpot. It only lists a Wix filter # 51356. Am I doing something wrong?
