Need to change my final drive oil and want to know the general consensus as to what the other folks are recommending. Manuel spec is Honda 85W Hypoid. What other choices are being used.:bow:

+1 on the Mobil 1, but I am gonna switch to Amsoil....cause I have some.
On my BMW I used SuperTech, 80w-90, then switched to Honda Final Drive Oil, I believe is also 80w-90.

I have a few bottles left over, so I'll use it on my Goldwing till it's gone.

Make sure it is Hypoid B, GL-5, and it should work.

I use that Genuine Honda shaft drive oil with the picture of a Gold Wing on the front. My dealer gave me two bottles when I bought the bike (and some other stuff) and then a friend of mine gave me three bottles when he got convinced that something else was sooooo much better.

If any of the rest of you are unhappy with your Genuine Honda shaft drive oil - please send it to me. I'm starting a "collection". ;)
