2013 Victory Cross Country Tour with 25,000 total miles. Sorry I don't know how to post the PDF. I copied the results from the report.

Report is fine, wear metals all looking good and TBN is strong at 4.9. Oil is staying well inside the Viscosity. Here is a break down of the lines and the comments from blackstone labs.


Oil is Redline 20w-50 motorcycle oil.


Miles on oil = 4,999


Miles on engine 25,001


No make up oil added.


Aluminum 2 ppm universal averages 5 ppm


Chromium 0 ppm universal averages 0 ppm


Iron 15 ppm universal averages 25 ppm Iron is down trending


Copper 9 ppm universal averages 5 ppm Copper is down trending.


Lead 4 ppm universal averages 1 ppm Lead is down trending.


Tin 1 ppm universal averages 1 ppm


Molybdenum 448 ppm universal averages 39 ppm


Nickel 0 ppm universal averages 1 ppm


Manganese 0 ppm universal averages 2 ppm


Silver 0 ppm universal averages 0 ppm


Titanium o ppm universal averages 0 ppm


Potassium 0 ppm universal averages 2 ppm


Boron 20 ppm universal averages 13 ppm


Silicon 11 ppm universal averages 11 ppm


Sodium 3 ppm universal averages 6 ppm


Calcium 2451 ppm universal averages 1705 ppm


Magnesium 17 ppm universal averages 532 ppm


Phosphorus 1929 ppm universal averages 1046 ppm


Zinc 2269 ppm universal averages 1222 ppm


Barium 0 ppm universal averages 2 ppm


SUS Viscosity @210 F 98.8 Values should be 86-102


cSt Viscosity @100 C 20.08 Values should be 17.0-21.1


Flashpoint in F 455 Values should be >385


Fuel % <0.5 Values should be <2.0


Antifreeze % 0


Water % 0 Values should be <0.1


Insolubles % 0.1 Values should be <0.6


TBN 4.9 Values should be >1.0





Comments: Copper and Lead managed to improve a little more this time around, and while both are still reading a few ppm above the average level, we're comfortable removing the highlights this time around. Universal averages are based on a shorter 3,300 mile oil run, so we're not going to quibble over a few extra ppm of metal when you've gone a lot longer on the oil, especially with the iron (from steel) reading so low. Iron is usually the metal that tracks most closely with time on the oil. The TBN is strong at 4.9, and no harmful contaminants or other issues were found. Nice!

Great report. What kind of riding do you do?

I went to the Victory website. The specs read like a dream sheet for a Harley that's never been built. I've been a rider all my life and I've never even looked at one of these bikes. My neighbor just asked me if I'd like to ride his 2013 bike. I'm ready to go this afternoon. Thank for the push. The neighbor said it was a good excuse to ride my bike so we're on for an afternoon ride.

We ride mostly in SW Florida. We go down to Naples, up to the Sarasota area eat lunch at the Salty Dog. We live in the Ft. Myers area.

This bike has been rock solid reliable from day one. Oil changes are quick and easy just one hole for the oil, the oil filter is right on the back of the engine so when you remove it you don't shower everything around with oil. I can change the oil and filter in 15 minutes.

The Cross Country Tour is a very well thought out bike.
