Welcome to the board JPhil. In the past air cooled was the norm. Now we bomb around on 160 WHP liquid cooled fuel injected monsters. Harleys are different for sure, with the exception of the V Rod. Two issues 90% of the motorcycle formulations have to deal with, other than basic lubrication. The shear forces of the gearbox and the wet, multi-plate clutches. These add packages differ on MC specific oils versus conventional motor oil.
