    Is HD coming out with a NEW synthetic? The reason I ask is this: I stopped in my local HD dealer today, and they have all their synthetic transmission and primary oil on sale for $1.00 a quart, NO LIMIT! I'm gonna pick up a few qts. tomorrow. But WHY?

    I like synthetic oil but not one oil into 3 compartments as harley suggest......

    I use redline synthetics only!!
    20/50-or60 engine (good flow cold excellent hot cooling)
    MTL redline for primary
    shock-proof heavy for trany

    could it be they are going to carry only engine oil for all 3 compartments???? or did I loose the point and products for a dollar you are talking about ???

    maybe use HDsyn. engine oil in engine & primary is ok but never in the trany by its' self.......

    JUST MY WAY

    I don't think HD has a fully synthetic oil for the engine, transmission, or primary (not recommended in the primary anyway!).

    TQ

    It's a hydro cracked dino oil, not a man made oil as other full synthetics are. Do some research on the base stock of the two.

    Kind of a harsh and inappropriate comment, don't you think?
