Default What Primary Oil is your Choice

What oil WILL you be running (your preference), and not just what's in there now from the last service, possibly from the dealer service.

>>>would ATS. Do you mean ATF? If so, that will also work, I believe Skip uses it in the primary. I prefer an oil instead myself JMO

I run the HD primary oil after draining the syn 3 that came in the bike and I like the hookup on the clutch better with that oil. Otherwise it's 10/30 or 10/40

I use ATF due to the best compatibility with clutch discs. anything will work though. lubrication and cooling of the clutch housing is job of the fluid and most any will do that.

Everyones opinion is different. I like the HD primary oil in there, I think it gives a bit more lubrication to the chain and sprockets myself. Some clutch packs recommend the atf for their chutches. Depends on what you're running for disks
