Well on my Diesel 4 wheelers machine although lowish miles and a decent engine, change the oil and ride round the corner and things are already blacking up.

I realised today that the drop in performance on my SW was very real, but not the filter as I feared, I had left the hand brake on for my quick round the block ride, the bike was jiggling a bit as I took the drain bolt out.

Went to the dealers today and bought a proper Honda filter to bung on soon for £13, you can get the Hi Flo Ones for under £6 delivered so you can see the attraction.

But that little button is so much further back in the Honda one than the Hi Flo.

Another oldie twit going on today !!! I checked the oil before going to the dealer and just left the plug/dipstick sat in to re check once more settled. Jumped on the bike to go, started it and an odd noise straight away as the Dipstick/plug flew out and the engine sounded odd. Luckily !!!

Cleaned it up and popped it in and away, the bike ran lovely all day.

Had one of those car horn blaring at me moments as I went round a corner and was horn blasted by a panicking driver, loads of room etc, no one needing to move or anything. What a flippin loud horn.

And for what ? more likely, to cause an accident. A car coming round might not have been lent over but probably actually a good bit closer to them.

Stuff happens. Live and learn.

Diesel turns oil very black very sooty that's normal. Ride On.

Well popped in some castrol power one 10w 40 for a try and a Honda filter and I have to say the old bike does`nt seem to like the Castrol at all. I mean really.

Very odd but its feels like it has to work far harder than with the motul 10w40.

I`ll run the castrol for 2k then pop back over to Motul.

Also as browney a lot easier to see on the dipstick plus a far better set up pull out nozzle wise on the small or large Motul bottles so no funnel needed with Motul, the Castrol 4L you need one.

You do indeed live and learn.

Honda filter and motul, the older way to go for me.

I used Castrol Power One 10w-30 for the last three years of my Silver Wing ownership and I couldn’t detect any discernible difference from the 10w-40 oils from Silkolene and Motul I'd used in the years before.

Now I'm running the 300 Forza, oil changes and services are at 8000 miles intervals. Smaller oil capacity, an easily accessible oil filter on the side, and currently it's a genuine  Honda filter that’s on there.

The surplus Champion oil filters I had for the Silver Wing are also the recommended ones for the Forza, so I'll use them in future.

When I was in farklng mode I did look into getting a magnetic sump plug for the Forza, as it's a proper steel one, but the sump plug threads are at least twice the length of normal replacement magnetic sump plugs.

Oil and filters are some of the most subjective things on this forum and get people stirred up usually. Do a search on here and see. Use the oil and filters YOU want and all should be well.  That said my SWing does prefer some oils over others. This was especially true of my Gold Wing with it's wet clutch.

My Kawasaki KLR 650 loved Rotella T 15W-40 but when I put it in my SWing it did not run as good and used a pint between changes. Never used any oil before or since. Find one you are happy with and stick with it.
