    Sorry Seabee, just to give you the heads up, the "Oil" thread has kinda been beaten to death.
    For people that are newer and ask innocent questions it is exactly that, for those of us that have been here for a while, its kinda like fingernails on a chalkboard.
    If you look back at the archives you will find many threads, and even more opinions , on this subject.
    Good luck.

    I use Victory oil

    Use Victory 20W40 Synthetic Blend 20W40 engine oil for all temperatures. If Victory oil is not available, use a high quality​
    20W40 motorcycle designed for use with wet clutches (such as those with a JASO MA rating).

    Do not put chemical additives in the oil. Victory motorcycle oil has been specially designed for this application.​
    Additional additives are not necessary and have not been approved by Victory Engineering

    You can ask a lot of people the same question and receive many opinions on this topic.

    Last week, I asked the Owner of Volusia Motorsports the same question. His answer is in this video:

    60% Victory oil, 35% Amsoil, and 5% bacon grease. This way you'll have all the bases and most of the controversy covered, and when you start the bike up in the morning it'll smell great......

    Rode Fishwitch's bike last weekend. 137,000 miles without so much as a side cover being removed. Victory oil from day one. RK had his motor split a couple of times by that point with the full synth Amsoil

    Thanks, Guys. I'll take note. It may have been a dumb question but always good to hear what others have to say. I use Victory oil but sometimes there are other products that are better and less expensive.

    The only other oil I ever see here that is highly spoke of is Amsoil. Last time I priced it the Amsoil was more expensive then the Victory oil.

    Hey Andy!
    Can you rig the site so when the "O" word gets entered it instantly forwards the poster to the other older oilthreads that probably out number the types of oil available?
    Sorry SeeBee26 but hang out here long enough and you will get my drift.
    Just to throw gas on the fire I use Lucas.
    Boy I can be such a wieenie. LOL

    Nope........ I flew out to Cali for a cam party, and rode over to Tahoe on Sunday. Speaking of Sundays. After 2 months of my boss being opend on Sunday. He decided it was a waste. Even with advertising we had almost zero traffic, and sold like 2 things the whole time
