go to amsoil's website and they have a way to search vendors. I know in Kingwood I can get it from Napa. Some of yours may carry it as well but get ready to overpay for it. Mine gives me a big break due to my dad being a technician.

I'VE GOT SOME AT THE HOUSE, IF YOU WANNA BUY IT.

I use it in all my scooters, and in my truck (well, not the mc specific stuff).

$45 gallon (total) and I've got (2) 1 gallon jugs (both un-opened)... no, its not cheap.

Switched from Motul 300v to amsoil a few months back.
Noticed the amsoil does not burn off as fast as the motul.
It's a few dollars cheaper per quart and I've been happy soo far.

Get mine at Motorcycles Unlimited.

thanks for the info, i had figured the same from the research i had done i just didnt want to pay nearly 14 bucks for a quart of oil.. I'm sure this will do fine until the next oil change and i can get it at a lower price maybe off the net somewhere.

Amsoil and Amsoil filters in both bikes the Vette and ZCar. Swithed from Motul and Mobil 1 a few years back-won't change again.

I switched over as well, first on my Dodge Ram 2500, then all the bikes. Their top of the line stuff has a potential 25,000 mile change interval. I've talked to people who where skeptical, sent in their oil for an oil analysis after 25,000 miles & the report came back the oil was still safe to use. Plus they warranty their oil against engine damage. If you need the name of an authorized independent dealer just pm me.
