Does anyone know if there's any real diff between Mobil1 automotive and Mobil1Vt?Or are us harley riders gettin' ripped because we have deeper pockets when it comes to our bikes?

Apart from the weight, doesn't look like a whole lot of difference to me, in fact the automotive reads better to me...... whatever turns your crank :265:

Snowman, your one link was to 5w-50. The most common here is 15w-50.
Here is that link.

On that note, I use the 15w-50 because I can get it anywhere and it is alot cheaper. The major difference I have read is:
1. Slightly lower flash point.
2. Different viscosity modifier to make it 15w instead of 20w.
I have read the anti acids and the anti wear additives are almost identical in both of them.
I think the V-twin is more expensive because of a much lower production quantity
Use what makes you feel good. I think they both work very well.

Thanks for the links and the tips.I ended up going with Mobil1 20/50.Can't say if it my bike ran cooler 'cause it was only approx 23degrees cel, but the shift was smoother and no change in the drivetrain noise levels.I will be happy to give amsoil a try next time i just have to find a local rep or wait for shipment from Victoria.
