    I understand more oil is better and I do not plan on messing with the thermostat that is on it now. I don't expect any drastic drop in oil temps. I'm waiting till we get an 80 degree day to ride 50 or so miles and come back home and take a reading then do the swap on the larger cooler when it cools down. It will happen soon I'm sure. it was nice to see the 225 on the OEM oil cooler (cleaned and combed) I removed a pile of insects and road crud from it this past winter while working on fitting the larger cooler. thanks Jack I'm also kicking around going to Amsoil Oil your thoughts? Mobil 1 20W50 is what I have used since 2013 on the first oil change I done. ride safe Fred

    Both are good oils IMO, I dunno if Amsoil is any better than Mobil 1, it wont hurt anything to try it

    I plan on installing the new cooler taking it out getting it hot and record the temps. A good friend of mine says that Amsoil oil will run cooler hard to believe so I'm going to try it. Thank you for your thoughtful advice. Travel safe Fred

    Some oils definitely run cooler than others. I've never tested the difference between Mobil 1 and Amsoil...but just in case, I would wait until after you make your oil cooler change out and test before changing oils.

    It would be a bummer if the temps are cooler after you changed the cooler but did not know if/how much of it was because of the cooler vs. the oil.

    That is my plan after all temperatures are recorded with Mobil 1. Then just may. Redo test with both coolers with Amsoil just to see the difference thank for the input.

    Thumbs down Uneventful Weekend....

    The whole weekend has been a washout filled with Thunderstorms, Tornado Watches and Flash Flood Warnings. Since there was no mods or maintenance that need to be done, I decided to give the trike a good washing early Friday morning to get rid of a lot of that accumulated pollen. Yesterday I gave the sheepskin cover an energetic brush and comb. Today, I brought the seat and saddle bags inside and gave them a good cleaner/conditioner treatment.

    This made the weekend not a total loss.....but I would much rather have been riding.

    Default Action Camera mount arrived

    A few days ago I purchased an action camera and nothing that came with it seemed to lend itself to the Harley. So I ordered one designed for the Batwing faring. We shall see how it works as time goes on. By the way bugs are a good thing we all know what they mean. LOL

    Got in 320 miles today. About 100 along the Ohio River. Got back to 3 miles from home & rain started. Barely wet pulling into garage. Must have passed 100 bikes today ,all on the 2 lanes. Great day for a ride. 84* most of the day but we had a lot of shade on those 2 lanes.
