I use Redline in engine, shockproof in trans & HD Formula+ in primary. Good luck.

Redline in all 3 for me, been using it since '06. I'm completely satisfied with it. When I went to do an oil change last fall my Indy was out of redline so I went with amsoil. Valve train noise increased by at least 50%, and seemed to run hotter. So dissatisfied I dumped it to go back to redline after 2k miles.

I order this one direct from Redline: Red Line Synthetic Oil - Motorcycles, ATVs, and Powersports - Big Twin 20W50 PowerPack and use it each time. If you order for two changes at a time the shipping is free and it gives you a little extra as well on the engine oil too so I figure every 4th change all I have to order is the Tranny and Primary fluids. At 109 for the complete set of fluids I think it's a pretty good deal for full synthetic, quality fluids. Then find a retailer for bulk K&N filters online and you're set to go for years to come.

I've used redline in all three holes for awhile now. But going to Formula+ in primary next I think. Heard lots of good stuff on it, and how it's supposed to be better (quieter) than Redline.

Redline 20w-60 , shock proof and primary oil for a long time now , most every oil change gets an oil analysis done , I run 8-10000 between changes with no issues , the extra drain mileage is worth the extra money IMO
