Good morning,
I drive a Goldwing and my friend has a Silverwing. We got chatting about oil the other night and I was wondering if the recommended oil for the Silverwing was the same as the Goldwing, the Honda Oil ? My bike has a wet clutch and is very particular as to what type of oils can be used because of that.
So what is the story on oil for the Silverwing??
Thanks,
Greener

Greetings!

Honda are bound to say use Honda oil - people here use whatever they feel is best.

In average climates 10/40-50 four-stroke car oil is fine and I'd select fully-synthetic if I did my own oil changes.

Motorcycle oil is not necessary.

I use mobil 1 10-40 but wouldn't have issues with non-synthetic. I just prefer the extended oil change intervals. I buy the 5 quart jugs at Walmart and get 2 changes out of it.

I put Mobil 1 10-40 non energy conserving in mine, and i have a complaining (floating) valve train when i rape the throttle now, so im going back to the 4t Mobil 1 synth and see what happens. Or, i could keep my wrist out of the throttle all the time . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .NAAAAAHHH ! ! !

Based on lots of real miles in recent years--all bikes, WalMart 10-40 house brand , cheap and works for those in N America----I have used it for around 500,000 miles on various bikes--Works great----Some samples:

I had 4 Helix, all went at least 36,000 miles each, two were traded at 50,000

Reflex---Run over @ 22,000

SilverWing=no trouble

Kawasaki Concours---traded @ 56,000 miles

Suzuki GS500E-64,000 in 15 months.

I am aware of Japan MA and MB requirements

Two Honda CB750 Nighthawks----each traded @ 50,000 miles they were run hard, one pulled camping trailer to Alaska and back.


I continue to use WalMart oil in my new Honda NT700V.


Now, even though I ride a lot, I change oil every 2,000 miles and filter (WalMart) every other change-----I do not believe in long change intervals, based on the junk I drain out at only 2,000miles.
