What are your experiences with synthetic oils in the SERKs?

Don't know yet, just changed my 2002 last week to all SYN-3. It feels like it shifts a little smoother, but too early to tell. I also wanted to see if it ran any cooler in the summer heat

My dealer just completed the 1000 mi check up this week and the lubrication was changed to SYN-3, H-D's
synthetic. The bike seems to run and shift smoother with it in. The checkup was late in the mileage due to the shop being about 2 weeks back logged.  Probably going to Amsoil next change.

I've been using for 5000 miles in all there lube areas.  Seems to be O.K.  Might even shift a little smoother.

I started using RedLine oil about 4 years ago in my 96 Road King.  At 3,000 miles I switched my 02 SERK to RedLine.  The very first time I used it I sent a sample off for analysis after 3,000 miles.  The results: Viscosity still 20-50, no degredation.  High temp burn off non-exsistent.  I do not work for RedLine but I am convinced it is the best oil on this planet
