    Hi all
    Sorry for another oil question. Has anyone used Penrite v twin 20w50 oil in sportster engine and primary/transmission? 
    I see it is available from sca and would be easy to get if it is any good.
    Cheers

     No have not used that one in motor , just thought I would say I would not use it in primary, trans. best oil I have used in primary, trans is Redline MT it's beautiful !! shift's smooth & clutch works nicely with that oil too. but I have had trouble finding it for sale ( you might be able to buy online ) so I have been using Belray in primatry that works well, clutch works well with it & shifting ok ( just nothing I have used comes close to Redline MT in sportster primary!! )

     Last year I rang Penrite and asked them if it was OK to use 20W50 Full Syn in my 2009 Fatboy. Yep no probs at all, I use it in both the engine and primary, Gearbox I use Penrite Pro Gear 75W-90. Gear box needs Gearbox oil. Fatboy has been running great.

    Me too super cheap.. hate that name, but have got a few semi syn 15-50 + 15  Diesel and other jazz in shed, so what ever Penrite Motor Oils reckon are good enough they are much better than many....I get the biggest container of oil on sale, as let"s face it, oil is the blood of engines and we going to need it again.
    But, I want Redline for the G- box. Sorry to sideline.
    Anyone got a hook on supplier of Redline Gearbox oil, or, I might have to do a run some where for Redline Gearbox oil?...That"s what a Tourer is for.
    Ahh. just read the posts, Krash yes Redline MT, is somehow very special for G/Box, and it bloody works a treat, although Penrite Gear Oil does get there but just not as smooth, with maybe a little crunchy  peanuts.
    But, of course you know to be aware of that which you splash into the Primary, be aware to take note that of your clutch requirements.as in wet crutch slippage stuff is a pain..Let's get on with it and change the old oils for new, hey KC.

    Yep I use it in my big twins ( engine only) and get it from sca, although I have had to order it a couple times.

    Redline gearbox oil I just get off eBay to the door, usually get about 4 bottles at a time.
    Save on postage.

     How many K's do you do on the Redline heavy shock proof gear oil, I was going to do mine at 20 000k intervals, and yes I have been using the MC-4 20w50 syn in my Wideglide for over 15 000k's now, along with the 10w50 semi-syn in the primary(clutch)

     I use this in the ultra. I changed it today. This has done approx 24-25000ks. Still like new.  Next time i will change it after another 40000 ks i think. Absolutly no metal on the magnet either. Bloody good stuff for the box.

    Hutchy. If the oil gets low, is the top of the bike white or clear.

     Ha I see now what you mean Mr cryptic Steelo. Yes when the oil gets low, the top goes clear. 

    Very similar colour in that pic hey?
