Engine oil and transmission oil are in fact different , Engine oil is designed to withstand heat and pressure , transmission oil is designed to deal with the shearing forces created by the gears meshing . So , while a 50 W engine oil may be similar to a 90 W gear oil in viscosity , they are engineered for different purposes . Would you run transmission oil in your engine ? Dusty
That was my point , AND would you run trans oil in the motor ? Something tells me the warranty won't cover either. Dusty
Thanks guys, it needs miles for sure. Sort of like stone washing a pair of levis.Hmmmmm,?????? no forget that.
So who treated the jugs for you? I may need to go that route.
Thanks much for that great information. Need to find my little telescopic magnet. Found out critters chewed up the wire harness under the tank. RATS, bastards.
Todd Greg Bender from thisoldtractor.com sells all the wiring components you need from single fuses to complete 100% correct length and color coded harnesses. He also has color wiring diagrams on his site for you to use.
I'll just stick to the engineering profile in the handbook on oil recommendations. These companies do a great deal of research and testing on this type stuff for good reason.By the way I did an oil change on the glide and put in the 10-60. Pulled the plugs and those suckers are bone dry. Have always had trouble with the Syn 3 pushing through the rings, not the case with this 10-60. It appears to hold up better in that high heat environment that a shovel loves. Have turn a couple other shovel owners on to it here. Talked to the local NAPA owner and he is going to stock it for us. He rides a BMW and switched to it.I remember years ago we all ran straight HD heavy 60 weight oil in the shovels. Then it went to this syn3 20-50. I like the idea of a fully syn 10-60.

I'm just here to get some information mostly for my restoration job, few places on the net with Guzzi information on these Eldorado bikes.
Roy,Was reading some of this stuff about lightening the flywheel? What are some thoughts on all that? I guess a few cranks have split in half? Would think taking weight off would change the character of the bike. Put some balancing into the Glide crank and have noticed the roll on throttle lacking going up hills. Little less vibs only on higher RPM's which I seldom visit. All for not really.
