Red Line Product Users

I realize there are many opinions on Eng/Primary/Trans oils, but I am interested in users of Red Line engine and primary oil users(I have used Red Line in my trans and am very happy with it). I would like opinions on your satisfaction with Red Line engine and/or primary oil or any issues you may have had.
Thanks

I've been using Redline in all 3 holes since my first oil change. I have stopped using the primary fluid and replaced it with ATF at the recommendation of Rivera Primo since installing their clutch last summer.

No issues with their fluids. I will continue using it in the engine and transmission

Tranny fluid with shockproof is great and engine oil is fine, but I had slippage issues using their primary fluid. Went back to standard Harley primary fluid.

Myself along with seven other fellows riders are using the Redline products in all three holes. Very satisfied.

I've been using Red Line in engine, trans & it works for me. But I used in primary & my clutch started to slip. I went back to HD Formula+ & the problem went away. I don't mind paying the money for there products, they work. Check this out:

Been using Redline MT 90 for my sports car tranny - 150000 miles without missing a beat. Run Redline in all 3 holes on the 2011 RGU. I did have an issue with the clutch slipping but couldn't tell you if it was due to the oil as I've got a bit more HP than stock and since the slippage was only in 5th gear at higher rpm were the power really came on the pipes, I wasn't inclined to think it was the oil. (I believe that if it was an issue with the oil, slipping would have been present in all gears across the rpm range)

And while Redline engine oil is more expensive than Mobil 1, I like it and feel that it offers more protection and heat tolerance and will continue to use it. Plus Redline has more zinc in it than Mobile 1 (If I could find that chart that showed the breakdown comparison I would have attached it but...)

2019 Wicked Cherry RGU. And an even bigger smile than before.

Cool that you're keeping track!

hd4cruzin, which number are you

Overtime pays more because of what you're missing, money isn't everything.
