Getting ready for my oil change, all oil changes have been with Silkolene Fully synthetic oil. I have been very happy with the oil. Today I was looking for oil and noticed there is a 100% Synthetic oil. Is it better for the hyper or the fully Synthetic is enough.

Fully or 100% ?

Isn't "fully synthetic" & "100% synthetic" the same? if not, the 100% would be better for the air cooled Hyper motor (10W40) Aloha Alex

Actually I think the manmade stuff is a better synthetic.
Don't touch it unless it says totally, fully absolutely 105% man made, no natural products were used in the manufacture of this oil, synthetic on the can, or just use the oil recommended and treat the service periods in the manual as a maximum
I have friend who has had 45000 trouble free miles from a Dyna just using what ever oil is on offer in the local shop and changing it every 3000, with filter every other change and you know how much fuss the Harley boys make about oil

I was told that if the bottle/can says Synthetic it doesnt mean it is 100% Synthetic, it only needs to be 51%.
Plus the price difference.
All my oil changes have been with Synth.
