Remove derby only if you are changing the primary oil. use a 20 w 50 in all compartments. YES a synthetic is good for that.

SOURCE: Trying to change primary oil for 2009 Harley Dyna

Pour the oil into the primary through the "derby cover" hole. Remove the derby cover and pour oil in until the level comes up to the bottom of the clutch spring with the bike standing straight up. When you look at the clutch, you can see the outer "aluminum colored" drum. Just inside this, you'll see a black colored disc, this is the clutch spring. Do not fill any higher than the bottom of this disc with the bike standing straight up. It will cause the clutch to "drag" making finding neutral with the engine running impossible. Usually it takes 36 - 44 ounces of oil.

Good Luck
Steve

SOURCE: I have a 2009 harley sportster 1200c can i change

Yes, although I don't work on the later model bikes, I do believe you can do this because you have to take the derby cover off to adjust the clutch and you don't have to drain the oil to do that.

Good Luck

My car has 140,000 kms hw often do i need an oil changeits a 1997 honda civic


To keep it simple: Your car should have used synthetic oil originally:

If you are using Regular Motor Oil - I found through many years of doing oil changes & auto repairs that 3000 miles is the MAX you should drive before changing. After that it tends to lose it's protective qualities & you can actually feel the difference (once you've removed a few thousand dipsticks) in the viscosity.

Synthetic Lubricant- Higher Quality Products will make your car last longer & I can suggest no better improvement to anyones vehicle than to use Synthetic Oil. Change at 6000-7500 miles depending on type driving. City, Idling a lot, hard driving = 6000 & Cruising/highway regular speeds=7500.

Always make sure your air filter is clean & a new Oil filter is installed each time as this will keep the new oil clean longer which provides better lubrication & performance. Some car Mfgs say to skip oil filter change & do every other but I like the results I have rec'd with changing it each time. It also helps to keep the new oil cleaner by not mixing in the dirty oil that is in the filter & associated piping.

If your car is running well, stick with the 5W30 that was recommended as Honda engines are extremely close tolerance. If it has used regular motor oil & is a little noisy, during the warmer weather you could step up to a 10w40 or even better a 15W50 in the summer, preferably Synthetic. Better fuel economy, acceleration & less wear & tear.

Finally: 140K should earn you a badge. That's just a well broken in Honda if it's been well maintained and you should expect much more service from it. I hope that this helps. Good luck!

Repsol MOTO Gasoline Motor OIl,4T,Sintetico synthetic blend 10W40


Repsol Moto 4T Sintetico Synthetic Oil - 10W40

Synthetic blend lubricant with high thermal stability, designed to meet the needs of the most technologically advanced 4-stroke motorcycle engines.
  • Excellent starting and lubrication in cold conditions due to its low viscosity.
  • Meets JASO MA API SJ requirements.
Its fine to change your oil with synthetic, Just be sure that you use synthetic from now on... I don't think its advisable to switch back to regular oil after using synthetic.
