Got my results from Blackstone today, not really what I would have expected at 4000 miles on SYN3. Changed to Red Line Motorcycle 20w-50 and had the primary/trans changed to Red Line MT-90. So far the engine is noticeably quieter with the Red Line oil, the trans shifts good and neutral is easy to find but that could be because of the clutch / cable adjustments at the 5000 mile service. Left column is the HD360 20w-50 factory fill

Blackstone comments: We were hoping to find wear-in material washing out. Instead, most metals increased, though taking into account the much longer oil run, copper is our only real concern. It read the highest, and with lead and tin (alloys), it's probably from a bronze part. The other metals have improved when you look at their wear rates. Maybe the engine still had some wearing in to do, or maybe we're seeing a bronze part, like a bushing, that's not wearing quite right. The TBN is strong at 7.0, but stick with 4K mi again next time to monitor. Wear-in metals should come down.
