And always a synthetic gear oil in my FXDC gearcase. Have used redline pepto bismol, good cushion.
I've heard good things about spectro so next time I think I'll try it.

In the sporty primary/gearcase I put the bel ray sportster specific primary oil.

Neutral seems to find itself a little better than whatever the P.O. was using
