    Reading that convinces me that a full synthetic oil is the only way to go.

    Since my 09 has a 5 year warranty I will use the Victory Change Kit, 6 US qts. Filter with copper drain plug washer. I buy 2 kits plus one extra filter and washer. That gives me 3 oil changes since I use 4 qts. per change. My latest kit cost $69.99 plus taxes.
    Note: Make shure you do not Over Tighten your drain plug to 15ft-lb. (20 Nm) Rather costly repair.

    Oil is a rip off you don't need it the gears get all slippery.
    Run the bikes with out the gears really grab.

    Ok ive got a question, up until now the only thing about oil i have commented on is that i use Vic oil.
    Heres my question:
    We all know that there are a billion theories about oil out there, but while we are researching what is the best, is there any danger to the engine by experimenting?
    In other words if we are all using quality oils, (not Billy Bobs bargain oil) why cant we just change brands lets say, every other change. Until we find what WE like best?

    Since this subject is here to stay i thought i would ask.

    What we like best is not always what is best, this is the same for many topics. An oil that makes your engine run cooler means your engine isn't getting to optimum temperature and vice versa... II stick with Vic because no other company out there can prove to me that they spent as much time testing their oil on Victory brands.
    Well, this topic should fly out of control again...lol

    This is easy.
    I bought the bike. I pay for the oil. I use what I want.

    Will you use just any oil or an oil as long as it has the JASO-MA Rating? (An Oil for Wet Clutches)
