Im thinking about 3k on the oil change. This was my first oil change and I don't really know what the guy before me ran, but I can't say I noticed any difference between what he was running and the Lucas..... I was really surprised that this bike holds 5qts of oil!! At $10 per qt that starts to get in the ole pocket book!

I change the oil when I change the rear tire, about every 5500 miles. In 91,000 miles I have never had to add oil between changes. HD Syn since about 3500.

I just put in Mobile 20/50 v-twin, after much reading it seems that most people prefer oil with a high phosphorus and zinc content. Lots of hotrod guys like rotella because of this. here is a chart i found on another site.

i am still not sure about the 10w40 versus 20/50 debate because of our engines being water cooled.

oil information

Well all this talk about oil and engines. What about the transmission? What weight is good for trans and its bearings.Most engines have the oil and trans separated. And usually the lubes are also different. So when the viscosity is changed for engine is it also good for trans. The reason I am asking is because my 2012 vrscdx lost the bearing on the output shaft at 66k and I have been using mobil 1 from day one after breakin, and it uses no oil. Timken says 50% even 80% of all bearing failure is lube related.So any answers out there?
