You can find it at Auto Zone or O’reileys! 20W50!
I like 50 in summer down here in Florida!

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.

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.
