Amsoil

Recommended Posts

I run baby oil in mine! Fresh squeezed from babies I kidnap from the local daycare it gets me around 3k miles! Seriously though are you trying to start a useless thread? Just like the brand of oil people use the changing intervals are completely up too the owner your gonna get people saying the standard 1k to the kid that doesn't give a crap and changes it every 5k and every answer in between! My advice is to run it and change it when you feel is appropriate

I wanted to try amsoil,  only place to get it locally is the HD dealer,  the 20w-50 is $17 bucks a quart,  F that!

 

IMO they are such a dumbass company,  buying their product is a big hassle,  you have to find a dealer,  buy it through it,  etc,  just a headache,  they would sell a lot more IMO if they just had their products available at auto parts store and such.

 

Mobil 1 from Walmart $9.99 a quart,  motorcycle specific,  1000k oil changes.

 

Fresh squeezed baby oil from the local daycare made me shifting super notchy...

Amzoil is good oil. So is Motul and Mobil One. Pick your price point and who has the coolest stickers. I've tried them all. Went back to Castrol GTX. Works fine. Cheap price.

Go Green. Ride Air Cooled!!!

I run Lucas full synthetic have always ran it in all of my bikes and runs great and can lasts for well over my 1500 mile regular oil change interval! But oil threads are a hassle because everyone has their own unique opinion!

I sell it to my buddies.  If you wanted it all you need to do it let me know.  I would give you my price (+$1) plus shipping.  I normally have it dropped shipped.  But yes they are stupid....
