Agree. I would not use SYN3 period. It's not a full syn, overprised and will not hold a big twin trans together. Amsoil will. Not pushing Ams, just saying there are better oils.They probably sold you that SYN 3 Citgo oil - if you got it in ya take that crap back ( keep the filter ) and get Motul, Mobil 1 or Amsoil 20/50 MOTORCYCLE Rated Oil and join the club of better shifting / best protected V Rod Revolution engines.
