Just done my 10,000 mile oil change on my 2019 RGS. I had the vent kit fitted 5000 miles ago and happy no transfer now so used proper oils in each hole. Redline 20/50 in engine, Redline Primary in Primary and Redline transmission with shockproof in Transmission.
Amazon are doing a great at the moment on the Redline Big Twin Oil package, 5 qt of engine oil, 1qt or Primary and 1 qt of transmission + fuel treatment + funnel + hat + stickers for $99.99
Only thing you need to add is filter and 'O' rings

I changed all 3 holes 1000 miles ago. I switched over to the Amsoil products. Using the Amsoil V-Twin Primary oil in primary, Severe Gear oil in Tranny and their V-Twin Crankcase oil. I noticed an immediate difference in shifting up/down while moving or stopped and putting in neutral. It just feels smoother and silky now compared to the Syn 3 I had been using.
ps. I’ve also been changing the primary every crankcase oil change. That oil gets dirty enough after 5k-6k miles and not that hard or expensive to just do at same time. just my .02 worth.
I had 3 Gold Wings prior my first RGU, I always used with great success the Shell Rottella Full Synthetic oil (Blue multi Qt. jug [email protected] Walmart ) anyone using it on their M8 and in what holes?
TIA

I'm an old Vulcan rider who used Rotella for years. You will be hard pressed to find many here that do for whatever reason. Here its Amsoil, Mobil 1 and Harleys SYN3 and not in the tranny mostly

I use Amsoil for all three holes. No problems to report. Seems to work well.
