thats very good. i have faith in the sporster trans as it can take more then double the power as stock with 1250/1275 kits ect must be way over built
i ride all bikes like a sport bike why i like the 883 can shift up and down and get down in the corners so i work the tranny a little harder then most.

So let me see if I've got this correct I can use GL5 gear oil in the 75-90 weight? Ive got a case of Royal Purple that I used to use in my Dyna and Road King trannies and if I understand this thread correctly I can use it in my primary/tranny ?

The RP label states that it has friction modifier additives and NOT recommended for motorcycle and ATV transmissions. I thought you wanted friction modifiers in gear oils for our bikes? Now I'm confused.
