To change your oil you will need 4 quarts of oil, a filter, and a new aluminum drain plug washer. You can reuse the old drain plug washer if it has not been squished out of shape. Your motorcycle comes from Honda usually with 10w-40 mineral base motorcycle oil. You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 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. Pour in three quarts of oil and add enough from the fourth quart to reach the high mark on the dip stick or inspection window. Make sure the motorcycle is upright or on the center stand when checking the level . You will probably need 3.1 to 3.4 quarts to hit the high mark. Run the motor for a minute or two to fill the oil filter compartment with oil. Now recheck the oil level and top up as needed. If you want to try an inexpensive full synthetic oil that is JASO MA rated 15w-40 Shell Rotella T Synthetic fits the bill at about $22 per gallon.

Want to change all fluids on a 1985 Sabre 1100 with 20k on the spedo. What types of fluiids do you recomend?


The oil & transmission are covered in shot. The brake fluid you will want to inspect to see if is clear and free of sediment. Change at will.
Fork oil is something to change also.
If the bike has been sitting up for any period of time go through the carbs, fuel petcock, and clean out and flush gas tank. Hope this helps.

Fork oil capacity for a 1982 Honda 750 Sabre??


I found the answer on Wiki Answers.

It says :

right 360 c.c. SAE 10
left 380 c.c. SAE 10


I wouldn't use sae 10 however, Honda suggests 5w fork oil. Just changed the fork seals on mine.
