Oil prices

5 posts in this topic

So I call Dennis Kirk to have them get 4 quarts of oil and a filter ready for me.

$6.95 for a quart of HD oil !

Five weeks ago I paid $4.95 / quart.

Enough is enough.

Got any good alternatives ?

HD makes motorcycles, not oil. Look on some of the popular Harley forums and see what others are using.

Do you want cheap? Or do you want the best value?

AMSOIL will provide the best value.

Check out the MotorCycle White Paper link on this page:

AMSOIL 20W-50 MotorCycle Oil - test by independent lab of all the popular motorcycle oils.

AMSOIL is far from the lowest price, but it is the best value.

AMSOIL on line retail $11.40/qt, Preferred Customer $8.55/qt.

By the way, I believe that Harley branded fossil oil is made by Citgo, and Harley Screaming Eagle by Castrol.

Thanks Oilman,

IMO, synthetic is not a good choice for a twin cam or older Harley.

Weather you believe "bearing skate" is real or myth, such engine builders as Bourget Bike Works, Big Dog, S&S do not recommend it in their engines. (Big Dog will void your warranty).

Harley Tech line do not recommend it either.

Has to do with "babbit bearing" or "plain bearing" VS. "roller bearings".

With the exception of the V-Rod, H-D and most other V-Twins are roller bearing engines.

(I do run syn. or syn. blend in auto, truck, 4 wheeler, snowmobile.)

    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".     
    • Can't build a taller garage when it's a tuck-under with sheet-rocked 7' ceilings!!! The truck sits up high....
    • bigger garage!!
    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took my big snippers to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end. Or unscrew one from a junkyard F-150 and saw it off. Looks fine.
    • I've fished it once about 10yrs ago Ice fishing from fishermans wharf....caught one perch in 3 days.   I was thinking about trying the lake once again with my wheel house..but it looks to be shut down. I talked to a guy from the Mille lacs area last winter at upper red, and he said the lake was great and it was the best he'd had for large fish ever on the lake.   I did did some reading and seen quite a few different views. The one I found most compelling and seemed to make the most sense after reading and looking at data was the view of a walleye population being mismanaged with slots, allowing for way to many large fish that have basicly eaten themselves out of food with the baitfish they prey on. Which in turn turned them into predators of their own young walleye. Hence the collapse of the walleye.
