Amsoil 20/50 is fine in all three holes but it's not a bad idea to run a heavier gear oil in the tranny.

Harley says you can run synthetic from the getgo...but it really doesn't matter...I run 20W-50 in the motor of my Twin Cam and 75W-90 in the transmission and primary case...shifts smoother and less chain noise...I use Lucas synthetic with the synthetic stabilizer...

I'm looking at Redline 20-50 motorcycle oil, Redline V-Twin shockproof and Redline V-Twin Primary oil. I just serviced it at 1000 with standard harley oil and at 2000 I will change to synthetic. I know why am I waiting for 2000 and not at 1000 miles it's just piece of mind and I know it should be good and broke in by then.
