I took the advice of some on this forum and at my 1000 mile service changed my transmission oil to Redline with "shock proof". I usually do not buy into snake oil hype, but I can tell a difference for the better in shifting and finding neutral is much easier.

I have used Redline shockproof in my '03 King for years with great results. Noticeable difference in shifting and finding neutral like mentioned above. I haven't switch the '15 RGS over to the good stuff yet, but it should be due by miles by next weekend (5k dealer did the 1K.)

Thanks for the info and the link! I almost ordered the same pack for almost $50 more from another website. I was considering the 20-60 also so I'm glad to hear others are having good results. Ordering for both bikes this weekend.

I use 20-60 year round , go to

racerpartswholesale

they have 'powerpacks' in either 20-50 or 20-60 with trans and primary fluid

I just had my 5000 mile service done from my indy before my trip out to Tennessee and he put the redline with shock proof in the tranny. Personally I can not tell a big difference. It may shift into neutral a little better but it is still pretty loud shifting up. Maybe a little quieter down shifting.

I thought the same thing, a little easier finding neutral, but shifting is about the same.

Is there much of a difference between the 20/50 and the 20/60? I'm not sure which one to go with for my 1,000 mile change

Not really .. In the long run, the 60 is a bit better for higher ambient temperatures , and that's why I run it here in the southern oven , in the winter , I always let it idle for several minutes before I ride off with 20-60 , never any cold start issues ..

I've had excellent used oil analysis that I posted here , where they said to go for 8000 miles ..

I switched to the shockproof at the 1000mi service and the 1st gear clunk is gone, its easier to find neutral and its seems smoother shifting through the gears

I have run @10,000 mile with the redline shock proof. I noticed that it shifts smoother and 5th is much quieter. I'm sticking with this product in my bike.

Did the switch to redline this weekend at 1,000 miles. Very smooth shifting now and super easy to find neutral. Noticeable difference over the factory fluids.

Redline Shockproof trans fluid is good stuff. I have used this for the past 15,000 miles and like others have said the trans was both quieter and smoother shifting.
