Yes - many people use the Shell Rotella diesel oil in their bikes (as well as automobiles).

What type of motor oil does a 2001 Kawasaki 1500 classic use. and how much does it take to change it

you can use 10w30 or 20w50 motor oil. in any bike I`ve owned from a 72 Honda 350 to a 88 Goldwing 1500 and serviced bikes into 2004 I`ve used 20w50 Castrol motor oil without any problems at all. the amount your bike will need is marked on the case where you put the oil in. I think its about 2-2.5 quarts with an oil filter change.

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.

How to change waterpump in 1500 goldwing

Remove lower faring at front wheel. Turn wheel and remove the three screws on lower faring one on each side and one in the center. Pull out toward the front slightly and down. If you need to pop out the next piece up by slightly pushing out on the faring sides. Water pump is right there beside the oil filter.

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.

How to remove a fairing from a 1990 goldwing honda

Look on the lower faring under the front wheel. Turn it left and you will see the screw on the bottom right side and also the center screw. Turn the wheel the other way and you will see the other screw. Slightly pull toward the front wheel and down. The bottom piece will come off. There are plastic clips on each sid so be careful. Next pop the next piece above it out.Press slightly out on faring sides.and it should fall out. You can now see the oil filter water pump and hose. This is also how you change the oil filter. Oil drain plug is under bike. If you need to go higher remove wire screen. If you need to go higher it gets a lot harder.
