Hi all.......



I have search the forum but I am now very confused.



I just want to change the oil and filter on my 1991 GL1500. I used fully synthetic in my car but is it suitable for my bike with the mileage? I don't really understand these things.



Most of the replies I have seen are from our friends across the pond but I was hoping someone more UK based could help. I can get Unipart 10/40 but is it any good.



Also should I try for a genuine Honda filter or look on EBay?



Any help would be appreciated.



Thanks

HI ,Richard,,use the basic oil you can get,with nothing in it,,its a low revving engine so thats ok,and with no additives it wont harm the clutch,get the best filter you can and your sound:waving:

I use Semi-synthetic oil on my 96 mod 1500. Last owner used that type of oil so im using the same. The bike has 61000 miles on the clock

Thanks to you all.

I found genuine Honda filter at David Silvers for £8 which I didn't think was too bad. And 4L of MOTOREX 10W/40 4-stroke semi-synthetic motorcycle oil £18.50.

Wish me luck and cheers again.

That will work fine Richard. If this is your first time to change your Goldwings oil and filter, this how-to might help.

Thanks I did see this but it did miss the question of type of oil to use. I wasn't sure if you could get away with car oil but know I know better. Maybe someone could amend this very helpful section with the type and a warning not to use anything but motorcycle oil.



This is the first time I have changed the oil and filter but if I can do it on my Rover 2.5 75 I can do any oil change...........If you have ever tried to find the sump plug bolt on this motor I will say no more. My mate has an oil filter strap wrench so should be easy (he says hopefully!)



Cheers all
