    2 seconds on Google and found their AU website as well as the distributors in AU and NZ.  And at $95 a container - its just not that good!

    Well, it's the first time, changing to a different oil, I've felt a noticeable gain in HP & TQ ( seat of pants ) also it's running a lot cooler. the Penrite HPR30 20W 60W Dino  must have been causing friction or the AMSOIL v-twin 20W 50W is good.
    when I was using the oil Redline make for Harleys, I did not notice a gain in feel , but it never ever needed to be topped up. and when looked in the motor it had been doing its job. plus the Redline was in a Twin Cam carb that was only 95inch but I reved that motor to 7,200 regular at drag strip.
    but the redline engine oil was expensive !! & the AMSOIL V-Twin is expensive !! but the way it's performing in feel & cutting heat down, indicates to me a reduction in friction. I'll stick with it.

    I may bite the bullet and give something else a crack.  
    Although I do about 4 oil changes a year so for me things add up quickly and even with a super oil like Amsoil I would still change it out at the 5,000km service mark I use (i would not be keen on extending it either).

    Thanks mate,  I have only heard good things about the oil. I also like that it can go in all three holes :)

    Hey Mate, I'm on a sporty, so I don't have a choice on gear box oil as GB & primary on sporty are combined.
    my recommendation is for the gear box use Redline Heavy shock proof, you will feel the improvement!! it is also a one off you don't need to change it again.
    I have not tried the AMSOIL V-Twin 20W 50W in the primary, but it says you can use it there too. I've got Redline MT in primary & GB ( can't use heavy shock proof in primary as would load the clutch up ) when I had a twin cam I always used valvoline AUTO trans fluid type F and it worked fine clutch loved it.

    Sounds like a good idea man, I have a 2010 FXSTC with 60k on the clock, I don't ride it hard but am wary of the k's creeping up so wanted to treat it with the Amsoil. The redline shockproof sounds awesome, I just read a bit about it and I think I will go that way. 
    My mate said 60k is nothing for my engine type so hopefully the good fluids will help extend it's life. 

    Just reminded me to get a service manual lol, don't know how much goes into the GB.

    Should be 1 quart (not quite a litre)for the GB and yes the R/L shockproof comes in a quart bottle

    The best tool for a long engine life is regular oil and filter changes (and to not live at max rpm -  actually program my RPM cutout lower by 1500rpm as a safeguard)

    Yeah he is the local distributor I think.  And at that price I'll stick with harley oil as I cannot afford $420 a year JUST for oil in the Sporty.
