Hard to know what to make of this given the lack of other data, but I知 definitely unimpressed by the viscosity. This bike is my daily driver on my 65 mile one-way commute so it sees virtually all highway time. The oil was in service for about 6 months.

I知 running M1 V-Twin during this next interval so we値l see how that compares in a couple months. I知 gonna try ~6000 miles again.

I'd suspect fuel is to blame for the viscosity depression and not the lubricant given the low flashpoint. Flashpoint should be closer to 400-420.

I wonder why I'm getting such significant fuel dilution. I do very little stop-and-go type of driving, which as I understand it, is the main culprit for that problem. I guess time will tell!

I agree, acknowledging that I don稚 have much familiarity with H-D痴 engines.

Hard to say! Certainly this is a new engine still wearing in, but it痴 hard to put a finger on it without comparison data. Well see at the next interval.

Could definitely be too soon to expect normal wear metal amounts. No call to be made there. Just have to watch those levels.

FD could maybe be from blowby as the engine is wearing in?
