Seen this article on Indians actual web apge and since I am coming due on a change would using the new synthetic is a wise choice...
Coming up on 15K on my 18 Chief Vintage and was wondering if it would help more than hurt?If OEM supports it, sells it and not stupid $$... I'd go that path. When I used up my oil kits i have already, I'll secure the best from Indian ... and if that's synthetic, so be it. My '14 chieftain is coming up on 50k; can't hurt.
Understood. I know people used to say that about cars... if you switch to synthetic from regular oil, didn't seal up as well, etc. But... I'll give it a go. . 15k miles...hell.. you've just broke it inComing up on 15K on my 18 Chief Vintage and was wondering if it would help more than hurt?
Spoke with my service tech today and this and he suggested I stay with the 20-50 full synthetic I have been using and use the 15w60 only if I plan to do a lot of cold weather riding.Full synthetic oil will not make your engine leak. It will increase any seepage or leaks you do Have. As far as being Crazy money.... it definitely is. My Vintage only had 1000 miles on it last change. But if I'm going full synthetic next time I would go Amsoil or Mobile 1. They have been independently tested a dozen times and always come up at or near the top. If you want to read oil threads then get ready for a good few hours of reading.
Been there done that!!!
i have used the indian oil for the 1st 4 years,2015. went to semi synthetic,seems to be a little smoother
