I am running the normal Victory oil now but I have heard alot of good things about Amsoil. I also heard that Amsoil could make your clutch slip. I was just wondering what everyone else thought about this topic.

Absolutly not Amsoil is made for wet clutch applications,Its the best. But dont use it until after break-in (3-4 thousand miles)and make sure you buy the right Amsoil for motorcycles. There is no comparison.

careful with lucas products,they have been known to foam,not allowing the pump to properly pick up,if you try it watch your oil light if it flickers,change it out--amsoil is my choice

Read the independent test report that Amsoil had done in an independent lab, Lucas does not measure up to Amsoil or for that matter several other motorcycle oils. As far as going 4 times longer than Amsoil I think you might want to rethink that staement. I personally have run Amsoil for 10,000 miles in my 2003 Harley Raod glide and then drained it and sent a sample in for oil analysis. After 10,000 miles the report came back that the oil was still in good condition and could go until the next test interval without being changed.

Here's the test http://bit.ly/iTOPi3

Is 20W-50 the correct oil for Victorys? I see Amsoil is being used in a lot of high end cars now
