Well this like a "which" tire is best thread, will bring a million different responses. As long as its a synthetic oil without moly you will be fine. Personally i use Honda HP4 Gold and Honda OEM filter, a bit $$ vs reg synthetic, but for once a year i dont worry about saving a few bucks etc. Honda has just come out w a new Full Synthetic (Red bottle) which ill prob use next time. Just my 2 cents
best oil by far is AMSOIL 10w-40 synthetic there is no other
[b] 07 Double R red/black AKA PINKY
Red Led Light kit
Puig Double Bubble
K&N Air Filter
Swing arm spools
Honda bar ends
CF Two Brothers
Many More extras
its a pity you guys arent here in Australia. The best oil I have ever come across is not available up your way. Highest film strength I have seen, and excellent results in oil analasys- absolutly minimal wear materials present- typically less than 1ppm/1000k's.
I snooped around the net when i first got my bike and came to the conclusion that Amsoil was the best, but last time I needed to change my oil i didn't have the money or the patience to order it (no one carries it local that i know of) so i put Rotella T 5w-40 synthetic in, and geuss what... my bike still runs fine. If you use rotella only use the synthetic, i think the regular has friction modifiers which are bad for wet clutches.
2.) Rotella T synthetic
and I use pure ONE filters, for my bike the are pretty cheap from advanced auto parts and i have read good things about them.
