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.

What is the oil capacity on Honda shadow areo 1998, and can I use regular motor oil

You will need 4 quarts of oil. The correct amount is between 3.5 and 4 quarts. Use only JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use oil that is Energy Conserving it will shorten the life if your wet clutch and transmission gears(wrong additives). Synthetic oils will help your cycle run cooler and shift easier. Be sure to change your filter and purchase a spare drain bolt washer. A K&L filter wrench ($10) is also a useful tool if you plan to do your own oil changes.

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.

What kind of oil does my 1988 Honda shadow 600 need? thanks

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).
