1K Service Help/Advice
* 2016 FLTRXS with FM STAGE 1:2-1-2 Headers, Hi-roller slips ons, Pro billet AC, and Power Vision*
First of all, I'm doing my own 1k service...and I guess that's why I'm here. Again, this is my FIRST HARLEY and FIRST BRAND NEW motorcycle. This will be my first 1k service for any of the bikes I've had and I'm just looking for pointers, tips and tricks, and overall advice/help.
I have the owner's manual...and first want to know if the checklist in the back is the same as the service manual. Would I need to get the service manual to do a proper 1k service.
I KNOW I WILL PUT THE RIGHT OILS/LUBES for each hole, none of that same liquid in all 3. So I've heard great things about amsoil and redline or whatever. A comment on what you use would be great guidance...I live in Sunny SoCal(Los Angeles).
Lastly, I'm currently at about 800 miles and a quarter in to my tank. I'm sure i will reach 1k before I finish the tank before this weekend's ride...SO would you guys recommend I do my 1k service before I do my WEEKEND riding regardless of mileage or should I do my WEEKEND riding then do the service after, like Sunday after all the activities. I know I will be well over 1k by that time so just advice would be great.
On my list of oils as of now is:
1. Amsoil Premium Protection 20w/50 Synthetic Motor Oil (i have read some controversy on this, but I do not have cats anymore since I did a FM stage 1)
4.Shell rotella t for primary
I'M UP IN THE AIR FOR GEAR LUBES for the TRANNY
Any knowledge on oils from MY SHARK BROTHERS would be very helpful!
Thanks in advanced and sorry for the long read. I JUST REALLY TRUST YOUR OPINIONS AND INPUT.
