    was doing some research on synthetic oils and came across Redline
    20w/60w and was wondering if anyone has any feedback on this oil - seems like it would work well and I like the fact that it's 20w/60w but at about $13.00 a quart I'm wondering if it's worth it???

    Redline is a very good product. The 20/60 is good for hot climates.

    Glider, I own a 07 road king. What is the best oil to use? I used syn3, is there a better oil? I used syn3 in all 3 places...Do you think stage 1, rineheat slip on's and the TFI controller would be to much for a un-welded crank? Would a 103 stage1 be to much for a un-welded crank?

    Syn 3 is not a good choice.

    Cruise through the self help forum, plenty of info in there.

    It's not too much for the crank but rather the way it is ridden that makes the difference. I don't like doing upgrades to the 07 and some 08 bikes because of the cranks. The newer ones had the tolerances tightened up on tham at the manufacturing level.

    I run 3qt's of 20-50 and one 20-60 redline in my ultra during the summer in new england and all 20-60 in fla. Keeps the oil pressure up at idle.
