    Shopping on J&P online web site for Redline V twin gear oil with shockproof I was amazed , the drop down box to put model specific info said Redline was not a choice for my 2015 FLRT Strange it suggested Amzoil as a choice

    That is odd, J&P must get more $$ pushing Amsoil.

    So the million dollar question is, Why is the 2015 Freewheeler transmission any different than the other HD trannys? Why would Redline shockproof "not Fit" according to J&P?

    I find that very hard to believe. I'd contact Redline and see what they have to say.

    I know that the Redline shockproof offers great protection for our trans but have you noticed any better shifting or less noise using it? I'm about to make the shift to shockproof in the trans and thought I'd ask.

    Maybe it's all in my head Don but mine seems to shift better and the dreaded Harley clunk also seems to be less. I like the idea of it coating and sticking to the gears and other moving parts. :p
