Question about 1997 Honda F6 C Valkyrie
For Texas I would have used the recommended 10w-40 or the hot weather 20w-50. 10w-30 sounds like cold climate or new car oil. I hope you used the Amsoil motorcycle oil with the JASO MA rating. In hot weather you might find the 10w-30 oil will tend to burn off the walls of the cylinders( some day you will check your oil and find out you are a quart low.). Without the correct rating on the oil you will also increase clutch and gear wear. Do Not use any oil that says energy conserving on the label.
