  • Welcome to the site. I'm not really sure what you're asking here ... if you are looking for specific product recommendation, that would be off-topic for the site and I'd have to close the question. If you are looking for other specifics as far as what type or weight to use, please edit your question and include the information inside the question. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Sep 23 '17 at 20:34
  • When I suggested you should edit the question, I wasn't suggesting you try to put it all in the title. Could you please edit this and put pertinent information in the body of the question and fix the title? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Sep 23 '17 at 23:22
  • After the overhaul, use the recommended grade fully Synthetic oil regularly. – Numair Aidroos Sep 24 '17 at 16:40

---I own a '92 Heritage Custom--and from what I've read I would never ever put a synthetic in her--it may be ok for break-in, if you had the cylinders bored or honed-I would ask others and get as many opinions as possible-the issue is that the recommended oil for that vintage (as far as I know) is 20/50 (Dino oil being the safest) and that you can cause other problems like leaks by using the synthetic. Get as many opinions as you can and good luck.
