I think I am going to switch to Amsoil next round and see if it quietens down the shifting some. So the question is, What oil filter are those of you using that are running Amsoil?
I was told the Victory/Polaris filters are made by Wix.VforVictory said:An AMSOIL rep told me a while back that if you can't get your hands on an AMSOIL filter, use Wix (#51356) or NAPA Gold (#1356). If you're changing the filter at normal recommended service intervals it's not that big of a deal, but if you want to take advantage of AMSOIL's "extended drain intervals" and not change the oil filter every 2500-3000 miles, use AMSOIL or Wix filters. I've never opened up a Polaris filter but I have seen the inside of a Wix filter and it has a ton of actual filter element inside.
IT is recommended to replace the copper washer, however I have a few extra laying around from previous changes and have reused the one on the bike and saved the one that came with the kit just in case. If you reused the washer just be sure the plug does not leak. if it does then change the washer.JChammer said:When you change the oil you have to replace the copper washer too for the drain plug. Is this a stock only item only available from the Victory dealer or generic ab available fromanyautopart store??
