After draining the first batch of Redline I tried, this is the first analysis of the second batch of Redline. There are are at least four reasons why I'm trying Redline further; 1) the bike shifts really nice, 2) the motor seems to run very smooth, 3) fuel mileage is up a bit, 4) it holds it's viscocity. If the wear could come down to levels comparable with the other oils I have tried, I would be real happy. For now, possibly due to the legendary Redline "cleaning" properties, some wear numbers are up. In fact, tin has had a reading on all three Redline reports I have, but on over a dozen reports on other oils I only saw a tin reading twice. I'm probably going to contact Terry and see what he makes of this all. Anyway, down to the latest report.
