Not wanting to start an oil thread here just want to know of those of you running Shell Rotela 15 W 40 in the primary what are the results and how many miles do you do before changing it. Going with it or Mobile 1 syn. Thanks in advance.

Normal manufacturer suggested intervals are likely observed.

You environment and riding habits may\will affect this.

Primary

Thank you for the info, guess I should have stated my question better but found what I was looking for, wanted to be able to run the rotella 10,000 miles between changes. Just thought it might be better than syn in the clutch. Not new to bikes but new to Harley so things are a little different.

Hey Dave, what is the best oil?:hitfan

I`ve been running whatever 20w50 is on sale for 26 years, should I switch to a 10 dollar per quart synthetic?:rollin

OP: Rotella will be fine in the primary.
