A link to a link. Clever trick, Gimpster! I see Two Wheel Wing has already christened you a resident mechanic based on your resume'. Remember, it's all about the points here: the more you post, the more points you earn. I just earned a point for pointing this out. We look forward to your " peeking into this joint ". While we have you, and based on your experience and history, " What's the best oil to use in the Goldwing ? " ;)

Heya Gimpster, thanks for the reply...you've got more mail buddy! And may I point out that the more wrenches we have around here the better?
Fossil, I would never say JUST a crew chief...your the guy that has to keep control of the dude behind the wheel (can you say 'the brains of the outfit'?)

Welcome Aboard!

Thank you for the oily insite. Let me ask you, if a person changes oil at 3000 miles, is it necessary to change the filter? Why waste money if you don't havbe to? I think if the oil is clean, the filter must be clean also. So why change it? let me know. Thanks.

Not quite sure your logic works. If the oil is clean it probably means the filter is doing it's job. I always replace the filter when I change the oil. I personally change the oil and filter every 5k with Honda synthetic blend. Honda recommends 8k with dino oil. 5k is an easy number for me to remember. JMHO..

Resident mechanic, aye ? Haha, interesting..
The other end of the spectrum is rear final drive gear oil where I have had absolutely zero failures, I stand firm on Bel Ray Gear saver...
Like I mentioned above, when it comes to oils, I research any tech data sheets before cracking a cap open on a jug of their brand. I think I have been around bikes too long...lol

Just my 2¢

----- Gimpster -----
I was going to change my final drive this weekend. I have 2 un-opened quarts in the basement of " YAMALUBE FRICTION MODIFIED SHAFT DRIVE GEAR LUBE" SAE 80W-90, API SERVICE GL4-GL5, was using in my 1300VTX. Can I dump it in the Goldwing since I have so much of it ?

Gee, bill. I don't know what your having, but whatever it is, I'll have a double shot. :)
