I would recommend a multigrade engine oil API SG or higher and viscosity 10W-40 semi or fully synthetic oil see if has JASO MA additive that´s necessary.

hi,not a hard job to do,take the bike for a ride to warm the oil up before you drain it,it makes it a lot easier draining the oil as cold diff oil is quite thick and the hondas only have a small drain hole,get the bke sitting level i normally use a small car jack under each side of the bike just to hold it level,undo the lower drain bolt(about a 10 or 12mm from memory)drain all the oil out into a clean container,inspect the oil for any shiny bits,you shouldnt see any foreign bits on a bike this age though,if you do get the bike looked at straight away,there are a lot of bits and pieces inside that diff and they are very expensive to repair,once you have drained all the oil out replace the drain plug making sure it is tight(but dont strip the thread by over tightening it)undo the filler bolt(large plug type bolt above the drain plug)and fill with a good gear oil(from memory honda use a 80/90w oil)fill the diff to the bottom of the filler plug just untill the oil starts to dribble out of the filler hole,this is the correct level and i think from memory they hold about 280-300mls,a 1 litre bottle does 3 changes..dont forget to put the filler plug back in and tighten it...hope this helps...cheers ian

The oil is this type of wet clutch is very critical, if the incorrect type of oil was to be added it could cause clutch problems that occasionally can be corrected by replacing the oil with the correct oil, sometimes the clutch disks are impregnated with the super slippery metallic additives like molybdenum and the only cure is to replace the disks. Do not use just any off the shelf in any wet clutch and certainly not in an 1800 VTX, it can and will cost you money. Use only the Manufacturers recommendation.
