Use any oil that is JASO MA motorcycle oil 10w-40 for cold climate 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use any oil that is Energy Conserving it will shorten the life of your transmission gears and wet clutch. Synthetic oils will help your bike shift easier and run cooler. Use the lowest octane fuel that will run your bike with out pinging/knocking. Probably 87 or 89 Octane it will say in your owners manual. Ethanol may cause knocking/pinging on some models. No ethanol will definitely help in vintage 70's motorcycles

2006 Honda Shadow Sabre 1100 oil pressure issues


Hi, Anonymous you may have a faulty sending unit to check for normal engine oil pressure, make sure the engine oil level is between the add and full marks on the dipstick. Remove the oil pressure sending unit, located on the right engine case, behind the oil filter mounting bracket, and replace/plum/or rig with a known good mechanical gauge that reads 0 to 40/50 lbs. Start the engine and run it until the engine oil reaches the normal operating temperature of 230 degrees. At 1,000 RPM, the oil pressure should be 2 to 4 lbs. at 2,000 RPM the oil pressure should be 30 to 38 lbs.

Need to change the fork oil on a 2001 honda sabre 1100


do not compress the fork springs you must take the pressure off the springs by jacking up front end of the bic this will take some of the pressure off but be careful when removing the fork bolts there will still be some spring pressure there. drain all oil out of the shocks then you have to find out the right amount of oil and grade you need for your specific bic. hope this helps
