PostSubject: GRiSO HEAD's Introduction and GRiSO modifications   Sun Mar 23, 2014 9:13 pm

Knight Design 2" drop pegs and foot control.  I machined down the diameter of the toe control peg to accommodate a stock GRiSO shift or brake rubber sleeve.  Candy Apple Red PAZZO levers to go with red fork heads and MG logo.  Fender Eliminator, Stucchi Luigi black powder coated stainless oil cooler grill.  GPR exhaust has a nice note.  Running RL or REDLINE engine 10W60 oil and RL SHOCKPROOF gear lube in transmission and differential.  Been riding for 44+ years.

Nice setup! and it's way too clean, I could never make a video of mine!

How do you like the RL Shockproof gear lube? how long has it lasted before it gets noisy again?

Been running RedLine shockproof im my transmission for about 4000mi now. Observations:
- My tranny was sticky and geting into neutral was very difficult / impossible when tranny hot before I installed the RL lube. It helped a lot. There was still some residual stickiness when getting into neutral. Probably the fault of the box not the lube.
- At this time, my tranny sounds like a major rattle box when in neutral with clutch out. Its louder than the tappets. I also lose about 100 RPM at idle when the clutch is out (with recently installed BeetleTech Map. Note: CO% is not optimized). Dunno, maybe a mainshaft bearing going bad??
- RL does not help with the huge THUNK when shifting into first gear. But engagement of other gears seem to benefit, especially when lube is new.

Anyway, Is it slicker than the factory gearlube? Unqualified yes. Good enough to try if you have problem.
Does it reduce noise?? Not really.
Does it deteriorate with use?? Yes.

PS. Roll down a slope in neutral. Stomp on the rear brake. What are those weird noises coming from tranny / drivetrain. Is there some kind of sprag clutch or limiter built into GRiSO drivetrain?? Does that even make sense?

What I've read from other Harley users of the Shockproof was it worked amazing but broke down in about 900 miles it started to get noisier again... that's why I was curious. I think I might have to give it a try.. I think I need to flush and bleed my clutch line also as I think that's part of my shifting lack of delicacy. Yeah first gear Grab is a big one on the GRiSO

going down a slope? might have to try that
