Amsoil 15W-60 V Twin Oil Feedback in M8
With the launch of the 15W-60 Motorcycle oil from Amsoil I was intrigued. Though the oil calls out Victory & Indian Approved I could see no reason why it would not offer similar benefits in a Harley, especially one riding in Florida weather.
So, I ordered a case and made the change. Now this of course is not a scientific review and I have not yet done an oil analysis (2000 Miles)
But it has been awesome, I am running it in a m8 107 engine on a Road Glide. It has seen 90's heat as well as 50's cold. I can tell you I NEVER hear any lifter chatter and the engine runs smooth and quiet. I had found the I had the best luck previously running Torco 50W Straight weight in the heat just because it seems to offer the least amount of lifter noise, second I had run 20W-50 Amsoil which has been tried and true for me for years. Never an issue. But I liked the idea of slightly elevated heat tolerance while not sacrificing cold flow. The 15W-60 is doing it for me.
