I am not even sure why we are debating this issue, except for the recent article in Blue Beret. AS started making Nev-R-Lubes standard on Classics in 05 or 06 and optional in other models sometime after that. I've heard of no threads indicating high failure rates with or without Centramatics.
Who out there has had bearing failures with Nev-r-lubes? That is really the indicator of theory vs. practice, isn't it?
