I use Amsoil in all three (and their oil filter).  Noticed that the local H-D shop is now selling Amsoil.

 Basically anything but Harley Davidson products! What a difference in heat, noise, etc when I got that crap out.

I use Amisol in all components, runs cooler and quiter, shifts better.  My tuner did testing for them and in "some" cases got a 9hp gain just by changing fluids

I have been using Amsoil but I would use Mobil 1 without any hesitation.

9hp, that's just funny stuff right there.
I'm using Bel Ray in all. the gear saver 80w in primary makes it shift like butta. a bit pricey, but what ain't.
