Hi Anonymous, Mobil 1 is is designed for water cooled engines and contains additives designed for your automobile motor. HD SYN 3 has additives designed for your clutch plates and a motorcyle which has an air cooled engine. If you were getting a blood transfusion would you want it from an immediate family member or some stranger? Good luck.

SOURCE: oil drips form primary case on 05 dyna low rider

Very little, if any, unless the trans was over filled, then the oil may come out of the breather hose. Did you check the shift shaft seal when you had the primary off?

2002 Road King FLHR CI, Is Lucas Full Synthetic 20W-50 Recommended for ALL compartments?


You should only run HD Primary Chain Oil in that primary case and nothing else.
Synthetics are never good in harleys since they are ball bearing motors and Synthetics tend to be to slippery making the bearings skate instead of roll.

What oil do i use for a 99 1200xl sportster


You can use one or the other. If you use regular oil, Harley 20w50 goes in the oil tank and Formula + goes in the primary. If you use synthetic (Harley Syn 3) the same oil goes in both oil tank and primary.

What kind of transmission oil should I use for a FXSTD 2000


Your bike came with H-D Syn3 20W50 synthetic engine oil in the engine, primary case, and transmission. There are many other brands of oil that can be used however. Go to their websites and check for their recommendations. Personally, I like the H-D semi-synthetic primary and transmission lube made for the earlier bikes. I think the transmission runs quieter with it in there.

Good Luck

I have a big twin Harley. I use synthetic oil in the engine. I ride about 14,000 miles per year. I live in WI How often should I change oil.


It really a question about comfortability. Some folks change their oil(s) every 5000 miles (or more), some every 2500/3000 miles and some might do it as often as every 1000 miles. Depending upon the model year of your bike current H-D specifications recommend changing the engine oil, transmission fluid, and primary chain case oils every 5000 miles whether using conventional or synthetic fluids.

Specs and oil capacity


Most owners of the old Ironheads try to use the oils that were used when they were built. They use straight 50 weight when the weather is cold and 60 weight when temps are hot. But, one could use 10W50 oil in them. I would not use synthetic as any oil leaks will intensify with the use of synthetic oil. The XLH, XLX, and XLS tanks hold three quarts with the exception of the XR1000 which hold two quarts.
