Hi, I'm new here, and I've read every thread there is on this entire board, and I still can't seem to find which is the best oil to use on my apes and custom pipes.

That would be penoil q delvac gtx 1 full semi automatic synthetic 80w90. Dont forget the chrome k&n filter, guaranteed just as good as a full rebuild and you get 15hp.

I'm still not clear on whether the apes should be filled with gear oil, synthetic, or just a plain old motorcycle oil.

Mercury. More stable at highway speeds which means less vibration as well as the smooth flow while taking turns.

Won't there be a problem with expansion in the Arizona heat?

I thought you filled apes with blinker fluid so that you don’t run out on long trips............

Some people have been known to fill them with gas just in case they run out, but seeing as Boulevards seem more prone to running low on oil, I think it's wiser to fill them with that.

A good EVOO, perhaps flavored, lovingly rubbed on always goes well with ape.

Yeah but when EVOO goes rancid, it has an awful smell.
