IMHO the Amsoil is a good oil when you have a wet clutch, rated MA, I like Redline oil when you have a dry clutch because of its MB rateing.
I would use the K&N filter or Purepower S/S oil filter over the stock one, as they are better filters. Aloha Alex

it is what it is, and always will be.......
