Hello and welcome to you Farmer Brown.
Glad to have you with us.

You should use AMSOIL in your Goldwing. I do, and it works great.

You've been watching the Food Network and Rachel Ray too much.

Castor Oil is what fills the bill !!!

Let us in on how you like your new Wing !!! Pics would be appreciated!

Welcome!

I run Mobil 1, but it looks like Mobil 1 "Gold" is about to be discontinued.

Welcome to the nut house and congrats on the new Wing. You have no idea the mess you may have started on oil. Go to the search bar and type in oil, you'll get more opinions than you may want to read.

Welcome and enjoy your new Wing. I use the very slick oily oil in mine. I used to use synthetic in my Suzuki 1500Lc and it made a difference in shifting and heat. But dont see a reason to do that with the Wing - use the recommended oil and change every 4,000 miles. Lot of different opinions on the subject.

Hello FB. Welcome to the board. In case you haven't noticed the oil question comes up quite often. I do want to be the first to say "Don't forget the new crush washers". You will catch on to this statement as read hang out here. Ride safe, ride often don't fight the smile.

You will "stir the pot" with any type of oil, crush washer, or tire question. Do a search on oil and you will have enough reading info for days on end.

There must be something wrong with me. I just looked in the manual and saw the service intervals and know when to take it to the dealer and give him my hard earned money. Spend all that money on the machine then try to save a buck or two on the import stuff like oil and service. I'll let honda keep the records and fix it when it breaks for the most part. LOL
