Default What Type of Oil for a 1200 SPORTSTER


Greetings,
I just purchased a 2002 1200 C Sportster. I will either flip it or keep it as an around town bike. I will probably keep it, but my question is as follows: What type of oil should I use on this puppy? On my EGS I use Mobile (1) 20-50 Synthetic.

Thanks for the feedback.

Looks like Mobil 1 (v-twin) synthetic 20W50 is a good choice. Thanks for the info. Also, got a $12 rebate on it from Amazon right now. Can't beat that. Made it less expensive than the auto parts store and delivered right to my door.
