Experience with Royal Purple?

I ran Royal Purple in my 2001 sportster for years and years without issue.

When I first switched over, I switched from Amsoil. The Amsoil ran great but I was still not to happy. The temperature drop from Harley dinosaur oil to Amsoil was about 15 C, The drop from Harley to Royal purple was 20+ C on a hot day.

I'm looking to swap my 2011 glide over from Dino juice to Royal Purple on my next change. Whats everyone elses experience on a big twin with RP?

RP is a high quality. product US owned company and US made product.
It is every bit as good as any other high end SYN oil and lube

Royal Purple is a good high end synthetic oil and will work great. Oil choice is very subjective and you will get a ton of different suggestions

I've used RP with good results, it's just getting more expensive and harder to find.

lol... I did too until getting back over here... the temps in Europe didn't need any other oil. But when your day starts every day anywhere above 26ĚC you do look at other options.

I ran royal purple in my 10 (73k when sold) and my 06 (93 k when traded), no issues ~ on the 12 the motor builder highly recommended I use a blend or Dino ~ I am ordering Brad Penn 20/50 motorcycle by the case on Amazon. Cheaper than RP ~ but time will tell on the motor. ~ 17k since my build figure I'll be a a hundred k on the build in two years.

I am a RP fan but will use what the builder recommended for now.

I've been using RP since 2004 and never had an issue with it. I would highly recommend it.
