Can i use rotella oil in a conventional gas motor


You should use a good motorcycle oil. A motorcycle oil has additives that benefit the clutch. I recommend Amsoil 10W40 motorcycle oil for the goldwing for most conditions and I am not a dealer.

Hi I have a 1984 goldwing 1200 interstate can you please tell me what oil should go into the gearbox Thanks Edwin


You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate/year round. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Car oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. Shell Rotella T 10w-40 ($12 a gallon) and Rotella T Synthetic 15w-40 ($22 a gallon) are inexpensive JASO MA oils. Be sure to check the label on the bottle, some of the lighter weights are not JASO MA. You will need 4 quarts of oil, an aluminum drain plug washer, and a filter.

Is 10w40 the rite oil for a 00 zx900e


Use only a JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. Automotive oil uses different additives and will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Shell Rotella T Synthetic (15w-40 about $22) and Shell Rotella standard oil ($12 a gallon) for diesel engines , both are JASO MA rated for motorcycles.10w-40 oil is good for cold climate. 20w-50 for hot climate/touring. Synthetic oil will make your cycle run cooler and shift easier. For the engine you will probably need four quarts of oil, a filter,and a drain plug washer . Pour in three quarts and check the oil level by placing your motorcycle on the center standard looking at looking at the dip stick. Run the motor and top up as needed.
If changing the oil filter you will have to run the motor to get an accurate oil level reading.
