The Great Oil Debate ( revisited again ) 4:
Now I do not want to poke a stick at old wounds or for that fact a hornets bee’s nest, but I just have to ask this question. So here goes…
I have been 10W40 Amsoil in my 2010 GL1800, and NO this is not anything to do with Amsoil or any other brand, just stated it so you have a better picture of what I am asking. As I said I have been using 10W40 since it was new, which is now 4 months that I have had it and now have 18,900 Km’s on it. Gee can you tell that I ride just a little…
I have used the 10W40 and all was fine, but with the weather being what it is…BOODY HOT…! Temps are in the low to mid 30’s here…about 95F for those of you down south. So on my last oil change I went to Amsoil 20W50 in place of the normal 10W40 that I have been using since day one. I am finding the engine run smoother and is more quite then ever before, and the shifting…wow…what can I say other then GREAT…!
Now the question is, how many of you use or have used 20W50 in the GL1800’s and how did you like it, what area are you from and what sort of temps do you have and so on. I would just like to get some input on the number of you out there that have or are using 20W50 over that of 10W40.
