    Let's get an idea of those that are using synthetic oil in the engine just when you changed over to synthetic oil. It's not really that important what brand you used but how many miles you had when you put in the synthetic oil.


    This should be interesting.

    Went to 100% Synthetic in the engine when I first got my first HD V-Twin after finding HDT recommended, never looked back... Never used it before because my Katana sportbike used one oil for Engine, Clutch, Trans & Chain case...and was fed regularly with 4 stroke motorcycle MA rated dino oils.

    I bought my bike, a 2006 Heritage, in June and changed the oil as soon as I got it home and uses synthetic.
