Aah, in that case, stick with dino oil for atleast 1000 miles.Thanks guys. I just bought a 2000 883/1200 and didn't get a manual with it. I have one ordered but didn't want to wait to change the oil. Just makes me nervous not knowing what is in there.
I do not think this is good news. I think it means a dipstick mounted temp probe, which I assume is what you have, is not giving you the information you want. I'll bet the oil in the return line is a whole bunch hotter than that. The important temperature we wish we knew, in order to feel good about the oil's capability, is the temp when and where the oil is doing it's job.Runs as cool with the 50wt as it does with Synthetic, at 158-168* oil temp on even hot (90* + days) in moderate traffic conditions.
