I do think it is great to have 4000 intervals for servicing...however oil changes, especially during break in, is NOT worth leaving those metal shavings in the bike that long. I did the break in and changed the oil and filter yesterday at 33 miles. Now I will run the regular car oil 10w/40 until 1500 miles and then change the oil...and run synthetic after that. The oil filter has me thinking though...why pay for all those oil filters when you can reuse a filter?Honda has changed the oil change intervals but after the inital change you can safely go 8000 miles but I do change my filter every 4000 miles.
Ive known Honda dealers to blatantly lie to owners to scare them into service at the dealership. The service is where they make their true money.
I use Mobil 1 Synthetic everytime
Start saving your money to buy gas! It will be worth every penny!!!Just got my first GL. Its an 08. Guy who owned it said he did all the service. I've got a box of receipts. It's pretty low miles, approx 40k. I was planning an oil change and putting in a new air filter. What else would you recommend to get it ready for a summer of riding?
The brakes should be bled every year and completely flushed the following year, that goes for the clutch as well. Ant-Freeze is every 2 years and so is fork oil.Just got my first GL. Its an 08.

Dang, every 3-4 on AMSOIL ? I want your business ! And your used oil .. LOLMy Wing is a 010 and I changed oil and filter and rear diff at 600 miles and put Hondas 10/40 in and Valvaline syn diff lube. I now have 3100 miles and plan on changing oils this weekend and clean the pcv tube. Replace with Amsoil 10/40. I leave for a trip south 6/13 so I want clean oil in then I will replace every 3 to 4 thousand.
