What is the oil weight the manual says to use? Thanks!
I'm running mobil one synthetic 10w40 all year round in the north east. Planned on using 20w50 but I could not find it in synthetic. That would have been the summer mounths 20w50. Seems to run fine and shifts better with the synthetic.
10w-40 here in winter, 20w-50 in summer. honda oil.
I run the Rotella 15W-40. I still have about 10 gallons of the older formulation. It's great stuff. Has better viscosity retention than any other oil that I have ever used in a bike.
As far as weight goes I would not go lower than 40 in an aircooled bike. Before the Rotella I always used a 50 oil, like the Honda GN4 20W-50. They just run so much hotter than a water pumper. For the W number the lower the better.
Cleonard, I use the Rotella-T too in my other bikes, quads, I planned on using it in my XRL too but just wanted to see what the "manual" called for.
Dollar for dollar Rotella is the best deal out there.
Mobil 1 fully synthetic..20-50 summer 10-40 winter...

I use it in my F150 and my Jag XJ6 as well.
Heavy, The 2007 manual calls for 10W-30 and 10W-40 for hot climates.
I use 10W-40 here in the SW (northern NM).
