This guys offering these so called power pack Redline oil deals that are bike specific. I would assume that using Redline is going to be just as good as using Mobil1.......correct? I know a lot here use the Heavy Shock and MTL but then use Mobil1 in the motor. The hat,sticker,funnel and cleaner are just fluff but the oil shoud be just as good I figure.

Redline is good oil. It's a Group V ester-based synthetic and can handle extreme heat better than many other synthetics.
Mobil 1 is also a good oil. It's a Group IV PAO-based synthetic and is also able to handle heat really well.

While ester-based oils will generally hold up to severe heat longer than PAO's, the point is moot because the engine can't withstand the heat required to prove the point. ;)

I've used both, and for me the cost of Redline put it out of the picture.
Redline 20W-50- $11 qt. plus approx. $3 qt. shipping.
Mobil 1 15W-50- $20 for 5 qt. jug at Wal-Mart. ($4 qt.)

Glyder,

That's from Bishop's Performance. Good people there. You can also order any of those fluids in specific quanities instead of the powerpack packages.

I buy the power packs from a local indy shop. The only thing I don't like is the Tranny fluid. I have found that Mobil 1 75/140 works better for me then the shock proof heavy. The 20/60 is great though.

IMO the three best choices out there are synthetic.
Mobil 1, Red Line & Amsoil (in any order)
