At the 1,000 mile check the dealer recommended syn 111. So I said okay :small3d007: Then I research alot of threads here, and several other places and decided to go with the common recommendations of full synthetics. I could not find Mobile 1 V twin nor Spectro Tranni fluid anywhere, but I did find that my local dealer sells Amsoil 20/50, Red Line tranni fluid w/shockproof and of couse HD formula +, all of this in one convieniant location. I put 1,700 miles on the syn 111 and then upgraded to the full syn. All I can say is THANK YOU for the recommendations - I no longer hear the lifters, and the transmission is now AWSOME! No first gear clunk (unless I push it backwards first), neautral is almost impossible to miss, and the normal shifting is very quiet. I really did not believe there would be this much differance. Thanks again for all of the good advise . Your advise has been a great help to this newbie and you have shown great patience with me. It has made this adventure more enjoyable for me and I am glad to call you all friends.
