I hope it isn't synthetic oil... Synthetic oil is so slick it won't let the engine wear. Too much synthetic will probably reverse wear causing the engine to be too tight!

You better drain some.

Clearwater lights and "can-opener"

Wow, what a great way to run the lights. In case you don't know the story. Clearwater found a way to tap into the Canbus and it greatly simplifies the install of lights on the water cooled GSs.
