Question about 1998 Honda CBR 900 RR Fireblade
Where do you live? That has a lot to do with choices first off...desert areas with triple digit temps... i would recommend 20w-40...cooler climates and coastal areas 10w-40 works good too! i purchase four quarts for my oil change and this includes filter change also. on most bikes people dont realize that the same oil thats cooling you engine is also cooling you transmission so oil ghanges shood be more frequent than you think, especially if you ride hard and once in awhile misshift and grind those gears. first ride the bike and get it hot then pull the drain plug this will tend to faciltate for best draining of all particulate matter. And if you bike is really old and you believe its dirty inside well just go down to autozone and grabe a can of "Sea Breeze" pour have a can in the oil system and ride it for about fifteen miles or so then drain it immediately filter too!...this cleaning gets those nasty carbon deposits off the piston and valves.
When checking oil the bike should be vertical.
I never fill to the top. always go half way...this ensures that you wont destroy the engine by overfilling. Chech again after a week to see if it needs more...after running with the new filter it will absorb some of the oil, thus taking it down a notch. Be slow on the last bottle you might only need half of it.
