mobil 1 20-50 syn in all three holes?

Hey guys I just wanted to see how many of you are doing this in 05' softails?

I have a lot of this stuff. I was thinking about maybe Mobil 75-90 in the tranny but like I sad it would be nice to use 20-50 on everything.

I did do a good deal of research here on the topic. Just don't know for sure how many guys are using it on an 05' 88"?

Thanks, Pete

Nope! I ain't going there!,

I use mobil 1 20-50 in all but the tranny. I use the 50w Mobil 1 for that. Keeps the noise down with the thicker oil, not so much that harsh clunkin goin on! And it shifts as smooth as that womans dress down her hips!

No not really, you asked a simple question and you get a simple answer. Yes it can be used in all three holes. Even says it on the bottle. Same as Harley (Citgo) Syn 3.....

Only difference is your not supporting Chevez......
