If synthetic lubricants deteriorate the plastic bearing housing, conventional lubricants will also deteriorate it. Use whatever lubricant you want of the proper type and viscosity. There is no "best" fluid. If unsure, or unwilling to do the research yourself, follow the manufacturer's suggestions.

What is the recomended oil for a 1997 harley davidson heritage softail classic

Harley recommends you use their 20w50 or Syn 3 (synthetic) oil. If you use Syn 3, you can also use it in the trans and primary. If you use conventional oil, Harley's Formula Plus goes in the trans and primary. Truth be told, any good high quality motorcycle oil (Amsoil, etc) made for air cooled engines will work in the crankcase.

1997 Pontiac Trans Sport, I took it to EZ Lube for oil change and was told it needed a transmission service. When I took it in the car ran smooth now it runs rough stays in the same gear for too long.

Take it to the dealer immediately and have the service re-done with factory fluids and filter. Give the bill to ez lube. This could be a very expensive problem about to happen.
