Wow, 56,000 miles on a 2016 bike.
I guess it doesnt matter what the numbers say as I assume you will be getting a new bike in a year or two, or replacing the engine once you get to around 150,000.
This last oil run was your worst though, as far as the lab shows. Drastic increase in Alum, Tin, Lead & copper. Also your highest iron count which is still very good though.

Im always surprised at the lack of Boron and Magnesium in Amsoil and only assume there is some other element there that is not tested for and we need to keep that in mind for all oils as if this was a lost cost oil it would get trashed in the forums.

Not sure if you are reading the UOA correctly. Bottom is the latest.

This has been my favorite bike. I hope to get 100,000 out of it. If I start having trouble with it, it's gone.

MCV in engine and primary. Using the Amsoil V Twin trans fluid for trans.

Thought about using the Vtwin trans fluid too, but the local Fleet Farm store carries Amsoil Severe Gear 75w-90 in stock and runs sales on it occasionally for $12.99 so I just stick with that. I'd like to try 75w-110 or the Vtwin trans but at full price it's not as temping. An amsoil dealer on the HD forums told me the Vtwin trans fluid viscosity was between 75w-90 and 75w-110.
