    Okay. I have read through many posts about oil selections etc. Decided to use Mobil 1 V twin in motor and Mobil 1 75-90 in transmission. However, I am not sure what to use in the primary.

    Glider, in a post someplace you said “In the primary pretty much any 10/30 - 10/40 without friction modifiers in it will do the job.” I understand why it should be without friction modifiers – though if you use for instance Mobil 1 V twin doesn’t that use the modifiers?

    Can you give me some examples of brands that do not have friction modifiers, cause I don’t think it says so on the bottles, or does it? Thanks for any information you can give me.

    HD SYN3 and Amsoil 20W-50 V-Twin are advertised as having no friction modifiers.

    Formula+ from the dealer, easiest way to go here in the primary. Usually it will list the modifiers on the bottle but not all do.

    Quite possible but not the best choice IMO.
