I think the first oil I used was Mobile 1, I've switched back and forth between that and Amsoil, just depends on availability and what's on sale, I never use HD Syn 3, last time I checked HD makes motorcycles, not oil, not to mention it's way overpriced also.

Mobile 1 MC oil for the engine Easy to get and a good oil as far as I know. I Use Red line shock proof in the tranny and HD SN3 in the primary. Those three have worked for me for many bikes and many moons.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I have used Redline for 13 years but would not be afraid of using Lucas or Amzoil either one.
