Went to the website Oldmtman suggested and learned a lot.
Might as well take 15W40 out of the barrel for trucks and tractors evidently. Was always told by Honda dealer that it wouldn't handle the demands of the transmission, and didn't have any way of checking it out. Thank You

i thought i would let you know how i got on with my oil dillemar i did try 15.40 deisel oil for 100 miles with no clutch slip and the engine sounded smoother. but i got talking to a freind who has owned a susuki gs 1000 from new and only used 20.50 oil since he owned the bike and has done 32000 miles to date so i have changed to 20.50 now ,the engine is a lot quieter on tick over and the gear change a lot smoother,and as you can get 20.50 for a reasonble price i am going to stick to this now and change it every 3000 miles thanks for all your input cheers john s h:):):)
