Hey guys, wondering what weight oil you are running on your RGU? HD-is not much help, they have a screaming eagle weight...haha Joke. Was wondering about a good BelRay or Other Synth oil weight. Ride 2 up most of the time. Was thinking 20 weight. Thoughts? BTW 13 RGU with 34K miles.

actually, they have 2 screamin eagle weights. there is screamin eagle heavy, and screamin eagle race.

I am running the heavy. I like it. some folks think it is too heavy and mix it 50/50 with stock.

do not get the race. if you do, it'll feel like concrete. pretty much for track use only.

Fronts, over 10 too much on FLT

Thanks Guys, I will try the Shock Therapy Suspension Fluid #10 Medium...Second questions is How tough is the Job. Do you need the 1 3/8 open end wrench to get the caps off?

Thanks Spazz- is the SE heavy 10 weight? how about the comfort did it make rougher
I can't remember the weight... the bottle says HEAVY on it

I would not say rougher... but stiffer, yes

I put in Race Tech Gold emulators with progressive springs and stock fork oil and it's a world of difference. Way better than increasing the oil weight.
Thanks RG cruiser Just trying to make it through this summer with the heavier oil that will help with the dive- just drives me crazy. Then Im thinking mono tubes or something like you have done.
What is the budget for them springs and emulators.
