      I used 0w-40 Amsoil in my belt driven brute force for a solid year without any problems. I also tried 20w-50 for my vtwin but soon switched to the 0w-40 Amsoil for the cold weather starts. While using the 0w-40 my cold blooded dual cylinder gas sucking beast would start in temps that were down right frigid without a bump in the road, that would be in the -30*F temps . Now I am running 10w-40 Syn Mobil1 motor cycle oil, which seems to keep the temps down but the cold weather starts are not as good as when I used the Amsoil. I switched to Mobil 1 because I can buy it at the local auto store and I do not have to drive all the way out to Anchorage hoping the dealer would be open.

            Clutch

            It has something to do with the clutch, both mine are manual transmission......shift alot better with semi or straight 5W30.
