about 2 years ago ( 15,000 miles ) i ditched the boutiquey synthetic MOTUL synthetics ( 300V 15W50, 300V gearlube ) i used in my 92 fatboy

went to PENRITE heavy duty diesel lube, 20w60 in the engine, plain old 80w90 MOBILUBE gear oil in the box and whatever 15w40 i have lying around for the primary drive

AND THE WORLD DIDN'T END !!!

said bike owned by me since new, 60,000 miles no consumption issues, less engine noise, quieter gear changes, gearbox quieter and a fukk of alot cheaper

once again conned by advertising, hope i've learned another lesson


btw ambient 10 - 43 degrees C, 2,500 mile oil changes.original engine including rings, valves etc
