    Default What coolant do you use?

    In the engine I've tried a bunch, but always go back to Redline. Although I did use Dynacycle for two changes, and it seemed as good or better...it is off to Blackstone for analysis. Currently there is some Brad Penn in the engine. I always supplement whatever oil is in there with some Petron.

    Default Lubricants

    Running Redline in all 3 holes, expensive but seems to really helped on my other trike

    (100 thou +) so im using it in my 2023 now. Also trying the new re-usable oil filter

    at dealers recommendation, time will tell on that issue.

    What Fluids do you run in your trike

    I use motor oil in the engine, gear lube in primary and transmission, fork oil in my forks.

    Brake fluid in my brake system. Just use the correct grade or spec, the brand does not matter.
