What engine oil does HD recommend in your country?
Hi Guys, looking for answers to the following questions. My bike is still under warranty, so I need to go back to HD for the services. I heard the following from a HD owner (who owns a vrod and softail) and would like to verify how true the information is.
He said the engine oil used by the HD company is mineral oil to service the bikes. This is not good and the recommended engine oil for HD bikes is fully synthetic. He uses Amsoil fully synthetic.
HD company had this to tell me.
SAE60 is the engine oil recommended by them for sportsters, it is semi synthetic and the service interval is 8000kms. They also said, fully synthetic is not recommended for sportsters because it is very thin and will cause louder knocking sounds to be heard from the engine.
What engine oil does HD recommend/use in your country and what is the service interval? Is it mineral or semi synthetic?
