Any good motorcycle motor oil should do in the 10w-30 range. some would use a synthetic, but i'd stick with a dino oil as it has had it most of its life. make sure its a motorcycle oil as automotive oil will not work (too slippery for the clutch).

What kind of oil do i use in a honda shadow vlx 600

Any oil with the JASO MA motorcycle certification. 10w-40 for cold climate, 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label. It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oil will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. You will need 4 quarts of oil , an oil filter, and a new aluminum sealing washer for the drain plug.

How do you change the back tire on a 1988 honda shadow 600 vlx ??

you don't have a centerstand so you'll need a racestand or ATV jack to raise your bike up off the floor..Disconnect rear brake linkage, unbolt and remove axle, roll tire forward a couple inches and remove chain from rr sprocket, have tire fixed or replaced..reinstall is opposite of removal...Good Luck to you friend....Tim
