    Hi all,

    I was just wondering if anyone in the UK has tried asking their HD dealerships to put in a non-HD oil (e.g. the much praised on this site Mobil 1 V Twin 20/50) and what sort of response they have had.

    The local dealership I use are a very nice bunch of people but I've been told that putting in a non HD oil will void my warranty because it is not a HD part.

    Any experiences or views to share? :D

    It CANNOT void your warranty using a different oil! Tell them to put that in writing and then show them this.

    As long as the oil you want to use meets or exceeds their SYN 3 which most exceed it, they cannot do a thing.
    Call customer relations at the MOCO and ask them too.
