Sorry, couldn't resist that pun. I hope Frankie Avalon will forgive me;)

I'd just like to hear back on what everyone is using oil wise and why. Strictly out of curiosity.

I use AMSOIL Racing Grease in almost everything.

I need to do the front bearings on the truck I just bought and will also use it on the steering and suspension components.

I use mobil 15/40 super 1300 {it's a diesel oil} It has everything a big v-twin needs that has the transmission part of the engine.Also seems to help the valve train noise when hot going down the hwy.I have also used castrol 20/50 which worked great.Just wanted to try something else.
