I just got an 03 V92C and downloaded the service manual here.

Looking at the maintenance intervals in the manual, it shows changing both oil and filter every 2,500 miles using the Victory semi-synthetic oil.

Really??? I mean, if you're buying retail that's like a $100 oil change :confused:

I woulda thought with 6.5 quarts of oil that the interval would be at least 3K miles.


Is this what most folks are doing? All my other bikes - even my WR250R Yamaha that holds just 1.4L - are 3K or more between changes.

Anyone have a recommendation for oil type and weight other than the Victory juice?

You are probably not going to get many responses here on this

1) there is a seperate forum on this site exclusively for oil & changes

2) most (not all) fly off the handle ,get a hernia, & their head explodes any time a oil question is brought up ( I am not in any of those categories listed)

My suggestion is to go to the oil & lube forum ( just scroll down at the index of forums and you will find it). Then search the threads- or even use the search option at the top. There is a lot of good and valuable info from some very sharp cookies here.

The old saying "you get what you pay for" rarely is accurate any more. BUT if you dont pay for it - the is no chance you are going to get it-- IF you pay for it , at least there is a chance you will get it. Keep this in mind with the oil for one

I always...

Change my oil myself. Am hoping to do it for less than $65... leaning toward Shell Rotella semi-synthetic.
