I've always used Honda 10w40 synthetic blend in my GL1500 and now in my GL1800. There are many oils out there that can be used as long as they meet the requirements listed in the manual. Some guys run full synthetics like Mobil 1, Amsoil, Rotella and others. You just need to be carefull of oils that have molly in them because some report that the clutch slips with oils that have that additive. So choose your oil, change it and the filter and go ride. It's a beautiful day.. Be safe..

And do not use any oil that is labeled ENERGY CONSERVING

What you want is:

Regardless of Brand, Synthetic or Petroleum, Always use a Motorcycle Specific oil with a JASO MA Rating, better yet, MA 2, but never MB.

If anyone tells you that there is no difference between an auto/diesel oil and a Motorcyle oil, they are mistaken.

Look at the G-2156 link in our Sig and pick one of the top 3 finishers.
