    Whats the difference in 20w50 and 15w50 ? I can find fully synthetic 15w50 many places but am having trouble finding 20w50. Thanks for your help.

    The 15/50 is a car (water cooled) oil and doesn't have the additive package that the air cooled ( V Twin) oils have.

    Anything will work but an oil specifically made for air cooled engines will give the best protection.

    Check out Auto Zone. They have the
    M1 V-Twin there for $9.50. You gotta have an Auto Zone there in Alabama!:bigsmiley10:

    They can usually get it for you in 2 days if it isn't a stock item being it's available in their other stores.

    Any AutoZone carries the Mobil 1 V-Twin. It is usually next to the automobile oils, not on the same shelf....

    Our local Autozone carries it but you have to ask for it. They keep it in the back.
