Thanks, Jack. AN OIL FORUM, GOOD!

I brought this forum idea up to Jack and other "mods" a while back. As you know oil threads seem to be all over the place. Now we have a dedicated forum for our discussions.

Right on "Mods".....

Maybe we even include "Metric" in the sub, to address their "FishOil" concerns, seriously the points of formulations and points of origins would be frackinly interesting.

Good idea! Now who wants to start the first "what oil is best" thread?

Get ready for the "pot" to get stirred up on this topic. I'm on another forum (car) and the oil and lubricant thread is off the hook! People are infatuated with their choice of oils. Again, change your conventional or synthetic oil on some type of "reasonable" interval and you should be fine. Oh, by the way, checking it in between changes is also a good idea. Sure everyone has heard this a million times before!

This is supposed to be an oil forum/thread so here goes. Tonight I dropped my '13 RGU off for the 1000 mile check and asked to put SYN3 in the primary. The service advisor said it's not good for the clutch plates and warranty would not cover the plates if I used SYN3 and the plates got damaged because the plates are a "wear item". I gave him the you gotta be shittin' me look. HD not covering their product using their proprietary oil. Has anybody heard of this?

SYN3 comes in all 3 holes in the 110's and clutches generally aren't covered because they are a wear item just like in a car. Now if something other then a plate caused the damage then that's another story.
