    My new toy :)

    Hey all, I just picked up this new/used 2022 KTM 390 Duke last Friday. I paid $5010. Prior owner traded it in on a new Street Triple. The bike has 970 miles on it. The prior owner made some some additions, including a Competition Werks cat back exhaust, Competition Works tail tidy, Chimera open...

    Two Brothers/RLS exhaust

    Hey all, I'm pondering an exhaust for my 2019 Can-Am Spyder F3S, and the two leading candidates are Two Brothers and RLS. While I've seen plenty of Two bro's exhaust on bikes, I never have owned/used one. From what I have seen, they looked nicely built and durable. RLS is a new brand to me. They...

    LS2 helmet quality ?

    Hey all, Just inquiring to see if their are any LS2 helmet users in the house? I ask because I'm heavily considering purchasing a LS2 Valiant II modular helmet. Never owning one, or knowing anyone who has one, I wonder about their material and finish quality. I'm really liking the options of...

    Harley-Davidson Primary oil

    Kinda reviving/creating a new thread on Harley-Davidson primary oil. The latest thread dates back last year and , no pun intended, primarily deals with using ATF in the primary. I'm due for a primary change and currently have Rotella 15w40 dino in it. On hand to avoid going to the store, I have...

    Rotella T5 15w40 semi syn .. Sure wish

    Just perusing the oil section at my local Walmart while getting service done on my vehicle next door. Reading the labels of the Rotella T6 5w40 syn and T4 15w40 dino, both stated JASO MA/MA2 certified. Not so on the semi syn T5 15w40. But, we all knew that. I only say this as I am keeping to...

    Better Deal ? M1 15w-50 or M1 V-Twin 20w-50 ?

    For a late model TC H-D. Local Advance auto has the V-Twin 20w-50 on sale for $7.99/qt. The local Fleet/Farm has M1 15w-50 on sale for $5.29/qt. I have seen favorable reports from both but curious as to the consensus opinion <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile"...

    Shearing/Viscocity Question ?

    Just curious as to what has more effect on shearing/viscosity break down. Would a 20w-50 oil viscosity break down more from heat (say normal heat) in a air cooled H-D motor application or from a l/c shared sump application of a metric type bike? Sorry if dumb question... Thx

    NAPA 15w-50 Full Synthetic Oil

    I was looking at some NAPA 15w-50 full synthetic oil on sale for $3.29/qt, which sounds pretty darn reasonable. I found out that it is made by Ashland Oil co (Valvoline). What I find kind of odd is that it meets API SL/SM ratings yet carries Energy Conserving on the starburst label. What gives...

    15w-50 synthetic in H-D Transmission?

    Thoughts about using a 15w-50 synthetic oil in a 2009 6 speed transmission? Kinda like a jungle with scattered info. Some say GL-5 rated oils (75w-90/140)are not neccessary and maybe too much. Amsoil is the only company I see that rates their 20w-50 m/c oil as GL-1. Mobile says the 20w-50 m/c M1...

    Oil Wapatuli Analysis ?

    Here's my question. I'll be doing an oil change coming up and will be switching to a PC Racing reuseable oil filter, similar to the K&P Engineering filter. I'll also be using the left over new bottles of oil I have accumulated over time. It'll be a mix of 1.5 qts NAPA 15w-50 full syn, 1 qt Honda...

    K&P/PC Racing/Pure Power Re-Useable Oil Filters

    Ok, I'm new here and this is only my second post but not having much luck finding any reviews for the above re-useable oil filters. I did order a PC Racing filter for my 09 H-D and will be installing it in a couple weeks. Just curious to see what others have found out through use, if any...
