    I now see that MOCO has came out with a full synthetic oil . Any thoughts as to the quality of their full synthetic . We all already know that the blend was trash .

    Really? Where? If you mean SYN3, that is a blend. They are allowed to call that a synthetic, but it is a blend (Group 3 lubricant). You would do better with a FULL synthetic or Group 4 (PAO) lubricant. Besides, SYN3 is made for the MoCo by Citco. Hugo Chavez's company!! I won't even buy gas from them.

    Synthetic oil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    WOW. Well written marketing piece anyway.

    Magic fluid that will work in: an internal combustion engine to clean, cool and neutralize combustion by-products that get combined with condensing water to form acids; coat and remain on metal surfaces to minimize metal wear under extreme pressure situations on bath/splash-slung oil bath systems (not pumped); lubricate chain/gear drive systems in a wet clutch environment.

    Unbelievable.

    TQ

    I think the Harley catalog said it was to be used in engines with the oil tank under the engine. Why, you got me?

    I find their new marketing hype to be just like the old marketing hype.

    Hype.

    There are way better choices than motor oil in all 3 holes.

    As to quality. Well, I've seen 2 HD factory guy claim they knew who made it and 2 different refiners claim they did.

    Obvious conclusion? Low bid.

    I'll not use it until I can assure myself of its quality with data.
