I just bought NAPA premium pads and they were made in India. The cheap ones are Chinese. They work well, but next time will look for American made.

I have no dog in this fight but more energy doesn't have to mean more penetration. If the hollow point properly expands more energy will likely equate to a wider, not deeper, wound cavity.

You went to the extreme of running a straight 60 weight, I don't see the trade off , numbers are still high imo. That motor doesn't seem to be well suited for more than 2000 mile oci's. Just like my Ktm runs sub 1000 mile oci's.
