Bigbulls, I was told by an engine guru guy that the V-twin oil is a waste of money for our V-twins. Don't get me wrong. It is very good oil, but our twins don't have a wet clutch system, and that is what the V-twin oil is made for. Basically, you are spending money for something that is giving you no benefit. I was running Amsoil 20W50 V-twin oil in my 650 and was told I was wasting my money ($11 a litre). I was told by a good friend of mine that has been building bike motors for years that a good 10W30 full synthetic is all I would need. The last 2 oil changes I have been putting in Quaker State 10W30 full synthetic. Works good (as far as I know!!). The V-twin oil will work great, but if cost is an issue, go with a regular synthetic and save a few bucks.
BFB, that oil filter sounds sweet. I have been using a Fram filter as there isn't a Kawie dealer in my neck of the woods to get a stock one from.
