My '87 has the original clutch. With 248 thousand miles on it. And I just discovered that the oil I've been using all this time has the dreaded friction modifiers in it.
I read a oil analysis for the factory oil of a near new Goldwing and it was loaded with moly. One of those things that makes ya wonder.
HOnda recommended a little bit of moly (and included it in their factory oil) until the GL1800.. they still sell both versions.. I think it is HP4 and HP4M.... the "dreaded friction modifiiers" in the most recent oils are excessive moly disulphide (1200 ppm), teflon and graphite. The Delo 400 LE that is so popular here actually has about 75 ppm of moly. I wouldn't use it in the GL1800 (just because Honda says no moly) but for all previous models it is okay.
