All Amsoil here. I run their 20W-50 in primary and motor but run a 75-110 in the trans (even though the 20-50 can be used there too).

AMSOIL all the way. Gas Man's a dealer. He'll hook ya up.

I run Valvoline 10-W-40 in my R1, ran it in my previous R1 as well without any issue. There are lots of different opinions out there regarding oil though, it can be a touchy subject for some :evg:

If you want a real nice oil filter that filters great, is reuseable and looks sick check out this link.

Not debating, but I've got close to 200,000 miles on two Sportsters the last twelve years with BelRay Gearsaver and no issues. Guess I'll keep using it.
