Running all Amsoil 20-50W in crank and primary and Amsoil 75-90 Gear in the Tranny on all three bikes. George Douglas is my supplier, and I don't have to meet him in a dark alley to get the stuff

Mobil1 V-Twin in the crankcase, Mobil1 75/90 in the tranny and Mobil1 10w40 motorcycle oil in the primary.
All three are syn, but I use syn oil in everything, including my yard equipment.

Amsoil

I run Amsoil 20W-50 in the crankcase, tranny and the primary. I have run Amsoil since the first oil change and I now have a little over 7,000.

Got syn3 in all three holes 12k miles. Thinking of something heavier in tranny. It feels fine though.

Syn 3 in motor and tranny. I don't see any advantage to it in the primary, so I use dino there. Saves me about 5 bucks.

doc ock wants to know Dino or Syn?
Mobil 1 15-50 for engine, mobil syn for tranny, Harley for primary. But soon that will all change to Amsoil for a 3 holes. I like the idea of a 1 in 3 lube.

I noticed that less than 10% of the viewers are voting (or the 54 that did, keep coming back to check results). I guess I need another poll to decide if:
1. They don't care
2. They don't know what they are running
3. They are ashamed to say.
