M1 isnt cheaper because someone gave you a free case for fk sakes. You have no clue wtf you're talking about.
Now the name calling because you have no other recourse. Typical.
I'm not even wasting my time reading anything else you say.

That's 2 threads that people were having an intelligent, civilized discussion til you showed up with nothing intelligent to add whatsoever. In the last one where 2 people asking intelligent questions and doing their own research came to the same conclusion I did with their motors they just spent a couple grand on and you were ignored because you had no legitimate arguement.

This one is done too. I won't stoop to your grade school antics.

https://www.api.org/~/media/Files/Ce...n-06282019.pdf

In the link above the requirements for API SL are on page 64
Table G-2—Requirements for API Service Category SL by Viscosity Grade

SM are next Table G-3—Requirements for API Service Category SM

then SN Table G-4—Requirements for API Service Category SN,
API SN with Resource Conserving, and API SN with SN PLUS

Then the new SP
Table G-6—Requirements for API Service Category SP and
API SP with Resource Conserving

You do not have to wait.

Harley's preferred API CH-4, CI-4 and CJ-4. have not changed.

API CK-4 oils exceed the performance criteria of API CJ-4, CI-4 with CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, and CH-4 and can effectively lubricate engines calling for those API Service Categories.


Engine oils that meet the API Service Category SP designation (see Annex G) may be used where API Service Category SN and earlier S categories have been recommended.
