Default $10 for an oil change VR1 20W50 conventional

Three 5qt jugs for $52.20.

That's 3.50/qt for the best oil there is for Harley V-twins

Thanks. Just about to restock so this is a real bonus about now. Going to have to double up and be set for a few years.

Too bad they won't ship to Kalifornia. Planning to use VR1 in my 1250 after break in. I can get a 5 quart jug for $30 at O'Reilly locally.
