Redline transmission oil

I took the advice of some on this forum and at my 1000 mile service changed my transmission oil to Redline with "shock proof". I usually do not buy into snake oil hype, but I can tell a difference for the better in shifting and finding neutral is much easier.

I have used Redline shockproof in my '03 King for years with great results. Noticeable difference in shifting and finding neutral like mentioned above. I haven't switch the '15 RGS over to the good stuff yet, but it should be due by miles by next weekend (5k dealer did the 1K.)

What do you use in the primary, 20w50? Or does Redline make a specific fluid that I haven't seen yet?

Just put in Redline 20-60 and hope it takes the "ping" out at 3200 RPM - 80mph when the temp is +85 degrees out.

my unscientific analysis says 20-60 is quieter
