What oil does Harley Davidson use ?

2017 RGS, I recently took off my cam cover and sent it off to powder coat. When I took it off a little bit of oil obviously came out. I was told not enough comes out that you need to top it off but I noticed a substantial amount did come out on my bike.

So Iím looking to top off my oil but want to know what brand Harley uses so I donít mix and match oil. I doubt it matters but Iíd like to be consistent.

Also does anyone think I need to replace the gasket ? It appears to be undamaged but Iíve never had experience with HD gaskets.

Thank you

Harley is going to use Harley brand. In all honesty any 20w50 will do. Check the dip stick and see where it is on the stick. If the bikes on the stand and at least half way up the stick I dont worry about it. If its below that Ill top it off but dont over fill it. If you over fill it will build up too much pressure and could blow gaskets.
