I want to start using Synthetic oil in my muscle but I'm not sure what kind. I want to use Amsoil but I'm not sure what weight I should using? I see a lot of people talking about what oil to use in V-rod's but I want to know what is the best for the Muscle. Any help would be appreciated! :notworth:

The recommended weight is 20W50 regardless with what type of oil you use. Of course there are exceptions like extreme cold or heat or dust etc. Check your owners manual.
The oil should be made specifically for motorcycles because of wet clutch friction requirements.
As to what brand?. The latest darling here is AMSOIL 20W50.
H-D Syn 3 or Mobile 1 and several others are altenatives..

People here don't like Syn 3 because it is recommended by Harley. It works for normal riding experiences quite nicely.

I'm fortunate enough to have an AMSOIL distribution center in my home town.
