by using the search - i found that H-D coolant is Peak global lifetime in the gold bottle. went to o'reilly, autozone, advanced auto & even wallmart - - - NOBODY HAD IT. the only had Peak in the blue bottle. H-D only had PINT size bottle in stock!! at $11 PER PINT! my last stop will be NAPA - - after that i'm buying Dexcool.

Dexcool works just fine. Been using it in my 2007 since first coolant change many moons ago. Bike has 180,000 miles on it.

Nothing 'special' about HD coolant - except the price! Any ethyl glycol based one should do. Dex-cool seems to be favoured by many.

hey rusty - - do u still have the valve adjustments done - being that the bike has 180k miles, i would think all the mating wear in that area is done. i had mine checked at 10k, 20k & 40k - - - the last time they were out of spec 4 decimal points out .0001". i don't think is needed any more, so now at 60k, i'm not doing the valve check

The last couple of times there was no need to replace shims. Everything was within specs.
