Question about Harley Davidson FLHR - FLHRCI Road king Motorcycles
The thick oil has probably not harmed anything. It will make it harder to shift because it gets into the clutch pack and acts like a hydraulic fluid in a torque converter. I'm betting that now that you've changed the oil to Syn3 that it'll shift better. Just make sure you don't overfill the primary. With the bike standing straight up, remove the derby cover. The oil level should be no higher than the lowest point on the clutch spring. If you look at the clutch assembly, you'll see that there is an aluminum ring around the outside of the clutch with a darker colored disc in the center. The dark disc is the clutch spring. Fill the primary just up to the lowest point on the dark disc just over the bright ring.
If this does not improve the shifting into second gear, have the dealership adjust the shifter pawl adjustment. It takes some special tools to get to the adjustment.
