Your motorcycle comes from Honda usually with 10w-40 mineral base motorcycle oil. This is what they recommend for year round driving. You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate (Wisconsin). 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Car oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. Shell Rotella T and Rotella T Synthetic 15w-40 are inexpensive JASO MA oils. The 15w-40 would be a great all around weight for your needs. You will need 4 quarts of oil, an aluminum drain plug washer, and a filter. Pour in 3.2 quarts , run the motor, and check the oil level . Top up as needed.

What type of oil is the best for a saber with 17000 on it?


This is one of those "no right answer" sort of things...

Right now, my 2001 Honda has roughly 70k miles on it. I can't remember the exact mileage because I had to park her through the winter and stare longingly through the window... First winter I've ever parked a bike. I had planned on painting her but never did. Anyway... I always put the oil recommended in my Honda manual and never have the first bit of trouble out of it. My bf however, he's put synthetic oil in his 2008 Honda since after the necessary break in service. He swears by it.

I would say use the recommended oil. It's recommended for a reason.

I just bought a used 2004 Honda VT 1100 Shadow Sabre. How do you check the fluid level in the final drive?


There should be a cap screwed in just behind the wheel spindle with a 17mm hex head. remove this and the oil should be up to the bottom of the hole.
