    I would stick with the Spectro, you can order it from DOC's, Barnes Performance or off of Amazon. If your in a hurry and can't wait 2-3 days for it because your going to ride, put the Red line in it and then change it out when the Spectro comes in. Or just wait to change it until you have the Spectro, that's what Andrew and DOC both suggest.

    I run the Red Line. Trans Fluid with shockproof. A lot of guys do. I use the gear oil for the primary. I have the old style primary (LSD). Baker reccomended either the Spectro or the Redline. I like it because any leaks are color coded! Pink Puddle...trans, Green Puddle...primary, or Purple Puddle...Engine Oil (Royal Purple). Its like fluids for dummys!

    Back when this site started Redline Heavy shockproof gear oil, all synthetic formula was what most were using and if I remember correctly Baker was recommending it. Kind of like S&S said to use Mobile one until another company made them a better offer. All about the $$$$
