Lucus makes a good motorcycle oil, sythetic. If its a wet clutch steer clear from synthetic if its a dry clutch sythetic all the way. If its an air cooled engine a good 30 weight is best. If its water cooled a multi viscosity 10w-30 or 10w-40.

Motorcycle oil with the JASO MA rating Honda recommends 10w-40 year round or 20w-50 in hot weather. Do not use oil that is Energy Conserving It will shorten wet clutch and gear life. I recommend synthetic Amsoil, Mobil 1 motorcycle, etc.. Also consider synthetic hypoid gear oil for the rear end it will have less friction and run cooler.

What kind of oil for Honda Hornet 250cc 1997?


Is this your first bike time owning a bike/motorcycle?
Standard motorcycle oil type is SAE10W40 mineral, if you want a much better one use synthtetic oil which are more expensive but does a much better job in maintaining your bike performance.
Word of caution, never ever use an oil with same SAE which are meant for cars, as they will ruin the bike transmission/clutch.

What kind of motor oil do i use, how much and were do i check it also same question for gear oil


The engine and transmission are a single unit and use a common oil supply. 20w40 motor oil is what goes in the gearbox. NEVER use synthetic lubricants in your bike. The bike gets about 1.06 quarts of oil when doing an oil change. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

What oil is ok for this old bike,1980 xj650 maxaim


look on right side engine cover/clutch cover, probably an oil level window there, small circular glass. oil quantity will be on cover probably as well, if it says 2,500 cc it's the oil qty not the engine size :))

I recommend a motorcycle transmission oil as it has the proper additives for a wet clutch. I like yamaha's trans oil plus for my bikes.10w40 motor oil will do in a pinch. and I like Yamaha's Yamalube S for oil injection systems.

I need oil for my bike.


The gearbox takes 10w40 motor oil. The bike does not have an oil filter, changing the oil serves as the "filter". The oil does not have to be "Kawasaki" brand oil. Any brand is fine; Pennzoil, Castrol, Mobile, Shell, etc.. Federal standards apply so they are all 99% the same.

Pleas rate this answer. Thanks!
