Hi Bob, A couple questions, I have a 2013 F6B Goldwing with about 1,200 miles on it. I changed the oil and filter at 600 miles and used the Honda GN4 10w-30 and Honda filter. I read a ton of the "oil" pages and also the oil tests on the 40 and 50 weight oils and Amsoil is looking real good. My question is, is there a test showing the 10w-30 oil with similar stats since my dealer said run the 10w-30 oil in the new Wings? I live in Ohio if that makes a difference. Also, what is the best oil for the final drive? How much for an oil change kit with filter and final drive oil? Thanks, you can email me the prices to [email protected]
Thanks.. On top of crappy internet service, my laptop has a virus and I can't access my email which is how I get here.
10W-30 or 10W-40, the choice will be yours.
The number of 30 wgt bike specific oils is so slim, it does not warrant the cost of testing.
I will go as far as a "I will change you back if you are not happy" warranty.
Many people are stuck with old school thought whare thicker is better and as long as they don't want to go above a 40 wgt to a 50, I usually don't argue.
If you ride hard and heavy, pull a trailer or triked, I will say the 40 hands down.
I always recommend my SVG Severe Gear 75W-90 for the rear. For $3.00 extra per qt over my other lube, that will last you several changes, I can't see why not.
I also recommend our EA15K12 filter to complete the package.
