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?

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

Wow them orginal indicators stick out a long way, I rarely use them as always forget to switch them off  Laughing
Removing right side rear passenger foot peg mount and keeping left side for exhaust looks naff  Smile  Each to their own.
Shiny engine towards front uppermost left side just after exhaust header is potentially leaking from a damaged rubber cap/condom on oil catch recepticle.
Can we assume your a lanky bloke with big feet?
Good luck with corners, your toes will be smacking tarmac fast.
Stucci grill looks better in the stainless with a black cooler so the word GRiSO pops I reckon.
Us olders prefer the orginal tail tidy especially in countries where we have a lot of rain/wet roads saves getting covered in crap.
My gearbox is silent save for when I change gear, 1st is random sometimes it clicks sometimes it clunks.
Using Eni Rotra as only £10 a litre and does both the gearbox and bevel box, though any ep90 hypoid gear oil will do.
Any unusual riding sounds can sometimes be attributed to a worn torqe/reaction arm front mount.
