+1 on the Amsoil. Just registered on their website and ordered a case. Came out to less than 10 bucks a quart. You can also get filters, fork oil, gear lube, fuel additives etc... All delivered to your doorstep.

Harley Syn 3 is one of the products I won't use, it's not full synthetic but they charge full price, who makes it, HD doesn't make oil.

Amsoil for me,20/50 in the engine,75/140 in the trans,and going back to 20/50 in the primary,see if there's any difference between that and synthetic ATF .Redline and Royal Purple are also good stuff,but last I heard,syn3 was supplied by Citgo i think it was.I'll be doing the 10k service this weekend.
