Ya know, I've never seen any discussion on oil viscosity/type or what-have-you versus elevation.

Are you sure you're checking the oil level correctly, as it's done a specific way to get a correct reading. Do a search here.

I've run the Honda HP. It's a good oil IMO. What viscosity are you running?

I second Trailryder on this one...make sure you are checking the oil level properly. I agree that HP4 is good oil also - should be fine.
