I have heard good things about Royal Purple synthetic oil. Do many people here use it or have used it? Any comments or suggestions on its use? With summer coming on, would 10w40 be a better choice? I will be using it with a K&N oil filter. I just recently bought this Swing and am not certain if the original oil and filter is still in it. It has 2700 miles on it and the Honda oil filter looks suspiciously like an original (in Japanese). I want a really good oil for it. Any suggestions? Thanks everyone Smile

There is nothing wrong with the OEM filter. Probably any good oil as recommended by Honda will do you well.

I used Royal Purple once and it seems I was burning oil or something. I would check the oil and had to always have to 'top' it off. I never had to add oil before with other kinds of oil, both dyno and synthetic, so I only used the Royal Purple that once. Maybe others have used it with no problems but I had to top it off about 3 times and then I just finally changed my oil. I really tried to figure out why since I never had an oil leak.

I put Royal Purple in a few things.I'll decide if I use it again when I see how it looks next change.If it feels dead I won't use it again.

I must say with all there hype it sold me.That was before I found out so many use shell Rotella T.

Can you feel additive depletion in the oil? If so, then you are the cheap alternative to Blackstone Labs.

If you can feel grit in the oil, then you have left the oil in way too long.

I use Amsoil when I use synthetic oil as they are the pioneers of synthetic oils. I figure Amsoil synthetic oil should be as good or better than any synthetic oil. If synthetic oil is all you make you should try to make the best.
