This would be more useful I think if you really want to run that amsoil stuff.


It's catalytic converter compatible. 馃ぃ

I'm thinking 40w is good, first number doesn't matter. 60w in a bike designed for 40w seems a bit thick on a cold morning.

When all the Victory dealerships close down close to me around 2005. I would use Mobil 1 10-40 motorcycle oil.

People change oil way before needed, wet clutch compatible 40w......BAM good to go.

You can pay more but you don't always get more.

I lived in Phoenix 23 years riding year around. I used Rotella T5 or a blend of Rotella T4 and T6 with lab tests that show it easily stands up to Phoenix heat.

I'm guessing Phoenix or the Valley, Arizona is a big state.

Rotella T6 works awesome in my 2010 XC with 115000 KMs and still rolling...

Ride Safe, enjoy

Tortilla T6 is JASO MA/MA2 spec. Which is all the owners manual specifies.

Hehehe "Tortilla T6" instead of the actual Rotella T6. Why does your bike smell like nachos, Indy?
