    I am about to do my seasonal lubricant change. Is there a better primary drive lubricant than the HD lubricant? I run M1 VT for engine lube as I use M1 in all my vehicles and I am satisfied with it. Any suggestions for the primary other than the HD stuff.

    Use non-Synthetic 85W Gear oil, clutch is in the same case as Gears and Chain on your Sporty. Check out Oil Selections and Maintenance Section for details. Always more satisfying doing it yourself IMHO. BTW, you will likely have to change the drain plug O-ring as a minimum and can use the Chain Adjustment access cover to refill, as you generally will check the tension anyway. :)
