    Re: Engine Oil Poll


    so, multigrade synth oil 20w50 (no matter what brands) is okay for hd engine rite? just wanna make sure before i pour mobil 1 vt into my dyna. coz usually guys here just follow what the dealer tells them, mostly.

    i meant all hd oil brand in 3 holes. i dont put engine oil into tranny of course...

    i read somewhere, quite a few guys put amsoil into 3 holes...

    i was thinking of using the shell helix 20w50 into my dad's rking, just to cut some maintenance cost a bit, rather than using hd stock oil.

    ow yeah..also have this heat with my dad's 07 ultra. still under 1800kms, my regular service guy says it's normal, and it'd get cooler after some 4thou kms. is that so? would changing oil to synth help cure this heat? never felt that hot with other bikes i've got before...

    thanks!

    thanks smitty!

    couldnt agree more w/ ya on 'same oil in 3holes' thing. i dont put the same type of oil in 3 holes, i meant the same brand which is hd.

    so synth oils designed for air cooled engine are safe for hd. got it now.

    I used Slick 50 in my Shovel's transmission; never had any transmission problems and I pretty much beat on it most of the time.

    I believe slick 50 was outed as a scam. For instance the tv ads with the viper running on no oil was proven to be fraud, Hydraulic lifter car cant run with no oil.

    Just stick with good quality motor oil, I perfer 100% synthetic due to its superior heat qualities.
