No I use Formula + in primary & trans!
Get it at the Stealer! There’s other things you can run. I just run that because that’s what replaced Sport Trans!

Belray makes a Sport Trans replacement but they want 12 dollars a quart for it a little high for my blood!
Get it at J&P Cycles!

Drag Specialties Gear and Chaincase Oil for Sportsters is the same thing and cheaper. It's what I ran previous to the Spectro STL 75W140 I'm trying this year. My local Indy carries the Drag Specialties Gear and Chaincase Oil for Sportsters and the Belray.

Penguin oil is best, after Midnight.

I just use a Qt of Valvoline Synthetic 20/50 Motorcycle Oil in my Primary. Same stuff I run in my engine. 4700 Miles later, No issues.
J&P sells a Sportster Primary oil. Think it was made by Twin Power?? Around $6 Qt. But I believe it is Conventional.
