Brad Penn oil in all holes?

I know discussing oil is like discussing politics but I figured I would start the topic anyway

I put Redline oil in all three holes at the 1000 mile oil change. I was getting quite a bit of lifter noise so I switched to Brad Penn SAE 20W-50 at the 5000 mile mark and have been very impressed with the brand.

I am coming up on my 10,000 mile fluid change and am wondering if I can put the SAE 20W-50 in all the holes or should I stick with the Redline brand in the tranny/primary and only put the Brad Penn in the engine.

Anybody ever used the Brad Penn oil in the tranny/primary? If so, how has it been?

Thanks

Everyone has their own opinion on what oil to use. I use Mobil 1 V-Twin oil and have very good results, the main reason I use Mobile 1 products is because the product is good and it can be bought just about anywhere so I don't need to carry oil on long road trips. I run 20w50 V-Twin oil in the engine and primary and 75w140 in the trans. No matter what oils you go with going with a 75w90 or a 75w140 gear lube in the trans is a lot better IMO. The Brad Penn oil should be fine in the engine and primary.

DO NOT run Brad Penn in the primary case. Brad Penn has a very high zinc content and would not be good for clutch plates. The anti scuff properties that the abundant zinc additive supplies makes for an excellent motor oil but works just the opposite for the friction discs in the primary.

That is what I was concerned with. Maybe I will put the Redline back in the tranny/primary and keep the Brad Penn in the motor. Either way I have to order both online because I can't find either locally, ugh.

Brad Penn in Engine
ATF or Red-Line in Rimary (VTwin Primary)
Red Line Trany (V Twin Trany)

Just my thoughts ~

That is why I use Mobile 1 products. I can walk in to any just about auto parts store or a Walmart and get the oil I need. To me ordering oil is just a PIA.

Never heard of this oil, so I looked up the web site.
It says some of their oil, the 20W-50W high per oil, should not used with catalytic equipped engines.
Some Harleys, but I don't know which, have cats.
I would be careful using this oil, unless you have removed the cat, or intend to.

The high performance oil is only sold as race oil due to the zinc content, and yes they must list that warning by federal law. Brad Penn oil used to be Kendal GT1 before the name changed.

HD primary plus in the clutch pack. Lucas VTwin syn 50 in the block and Lucas syn 75/140 gear in the tranny. Big difference in lifter noise and shifts like butter. After 3000 miles the block oil looks very good it with very little discoloration. Use to run Mobile Vtwin 20w50 and by 3000 miles it was very oxidized and I had far more lifter noise from the word go. Run what you like. I do.
