That looks fantastic. It looks like the trend lines are holding nicely. I like the fact you've got the same oil across 4 UOAs. That provides a nice baseline for your bike and that oil. There's no question at all that Amsoil makes good oil. 5K miles is probably the very early edge of that that oil can do. Have you considered extending your interval out to 6K or 7K? I've been running Rotella 15W-40 in my Wing at 3K OCIs. I'm going to click it to 4K and run with that a UOA or two and see what happens.

Thanks. Yes, I have every time I change the oil. I just don't want to have any warranty issues.

I would like to see the results from conventional HD 360 now that the engine is broken in
Maybe some day if I ever run out of Amsoil.
