I stick with HD sport trans, I've used it for 16 years and all good, I'm sure others will have different opinions though.

Dealerships have pulled Sport-Trans from their shelves and now sell Formula+.

Either would work.
I stocked up with cases of Sport-Trans oil.
Another dealership was clearing their stock.
Got it for $7 a case of 12.
That was the old price for one bottle.
Best deal ever at a Harley shop!

They wouldn't even use it up in the shop.
Evidently told by the factory to use only Formula+.

If I change every 2,500 miles, I bought enough for 100,000 miles.
I'm set!
