the 1000 and the 1100 take 3.4 qts. of oil with filter change. i dump in 3 qts and top off using the remainder. watch the sight glass. also , put on center stand when changing and filling , checking level.

i use castrol 20/50 gtx year round down here.

You should buy a service manual, Clymer, Haynes or the Honda one. That way you can keep the info on hand as a reference.

How many use a standard motor oil or do we all use an oil specifically for motorcycles :stumped::stumped::stumped:

I've used Rotella t, Delo 400, Delvac 1300, and Walmart 15/40 and 20/50 wt. Why don't I use a motorcycle specific oil? The owners manual doen't call for it. It says to use an SAE 10/40 wt oil. It doesn't say anything about using motorcycle oil, and you know what ? they were right. My bikes almost 30 years old and not too many things you buy these days last that long, and still perform like they should.

I too use a regular 10w-40 motor oil won't say what brand cause I don't want this thread to get ugly about brands of oil, keeping it change when it's due is half the battle:coollep::coollep::coollep:
