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 won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey! fellas enjoy them!
