I stay away from Synthetic, in both the bike and the truck. I've had bad experiences in both. The bike runs quieter with dino oil. And stay away from Amsoil.......

What wrong with Amsol? I thought that is the bean oil we supposed to like.

Nick90 wants to know Dino or Syn?
I ran walmart 20w50 for my engine re-ring break in, dumped it at 100 miles, and put harley 20w50 w lukas stabilizer and harley filter thereafter till i got rid of the fxr... (which i deeply regret having to let it go) and i plan to do the same on the Electraglide. Dino oil. Buy cheap, change often. (Compared to synthetic that is)

I think its more important to properly warm up any bike, or vehicle, whether you have syn or dino oil.

I run synthetic in all my vehicles, due to the protection and flow at LOW temps. (Winter) and my diesel appreciates the free flowing syn oil with almost instant oil pressure and its much easier starting.

Thats my .02

No really I have had nothing, but 50wt racing oil and I was contemplating changing to 20-50 synthetic in this RK. Should I stick with dino? I haven't had any trouble starting the Heritage.

I'm an analog guy. I still use nature's oil. It works fine.
