    Hey, I didn't post the propaganda from their web page that makes people like the one who posted it think Scamsoil has you covered. I really don't need to read it, I don't use their oil.

    +Not quite. Specifically, it states, "prior to the first installation of AMSOIL lubricants".

    Due to the quality of the semi-syn Victory, I wouldn't recommend extending drain intervals when using IT anyway, due to rapid tribo-chemical shearback.

    Ride on.

    SCAMSOIL !!!!!!!!
    Blastomy!
    At least they want to be in the game and are making a specific blend labeled ......... For Victory and Indian Motorcycles ! Read it ! Says so on the bottle. Must mean it's good.

    Actually when you do think about it
    The 106 and the 111 thunder stroke are 2 different motors but the same blend is good for either. Proof that Polaris wants you to buy only their products. Kind of like Harley branding their own crap oil for high $$$$ profit. Let's be in the oil business too !!!!
    No thanks. If I'm going to spend that kind of money on a quart of oil it won't be a sh!t Vic blend. I'll take the good stuff. Otherwise I'll go for the ultimate save a buck and use Rotella.

    Damn we are on the same wavelength there slickvic.. I used Rotella for years, just switched to Amsoil on my last change. Gonna do it on the next one too, I liked it AND the extended interval. I have one of older 100" bikes and being able to change at 5K instead of 2500 is really nice and well worth the difference in cost to me.

    Hahaha I get such a kick out of all of this. The best part is you know a lot of these people ride 3-5000 a year maybe and
    I bet they take their cars/truck to Billy Bobs lube and tune not giving it a second thought.

    Question Kaitiff....... Any notice or change in motor noise ? Shifting ? Cooler running ? I know the stuff Vic makes doesn't last to 3k at least not in my hot rod. Amsoil's proven itself to me in the categories I mentioned above all the way to 5k easily. Actually I'm approaching another 5k change interval and can notice some difference in engine sound. I don't baby this bike. I like to run it hard and yes the clutch is still good. 115 to the ground baby
