Hi All,

I’ve been a lurker for about a year now.
I picked up my new 08 Dark Red Wing about two weeks ago. I traded in my VTX, which I loved, for the comfort, power and looks of a Goldwing.
This machine is remarkable. Smooth as silk and plenty of power to spare. I’m thrilled!
I have found this message board remarkably helpful in learning about the Goldwing. Thanks to all.
At this point I only have one or two questions. What type of oil should I use and do I need to replace the crush-washer after each oil change? ;) (I’m really just kidding)
Thanks again for all the helpful information
Terry

Welcome aboard and Congrats on the new ride. I know you'll enjoy it for a long time if you follow the most important rule about oil and crush washers:

Put the crush washer and drain plug back in the oil pan BEFORE pouring in the new oil. It makes it really hard to get a full level reading on the dipstick when the dipstick trying to read it let all the new oil out on the driveway. (I really haven't done this one for a long time now. The medication is helping).

welcome aboard - you've been reading the board for a while so you know we're a mixed bunch -- me? I went to the hardware store and bought about a pound of crush washers for 59 cents...

Ride safe on that new bike of yours.

Cheers!
