Re: Oil

Get a Fram PH8A filter and some straight 50w Castrol.

Re: Oil

50W???I used 20-50 in my 929 once; it is a good way to smooth the throttle - but not a good way to have a quick-spinning engine.

Re: Oil

Jeez you guys... Get the Honda oem filter and if you have more than 2000 miles on the odometer get some good synthetic 10-40W motorcycle oil.

I had 20w50 HP4 in my last change and it was great...but expensive. I went with castrol this time and having alot harder time shifting. It's full dino, no synthetic, could that be why?

Yeah, I'm sure he is, but the guy who asked the question may not know that and will follow his poor recommendation.

Use the Honda filters and, if you have enough miles, a good 10W40 motorcycle-specific synthetic, like Amsoil of Motul. Don't use car oil. Search for oil threads and you'll find more information that you wanted.

If 929rridin picks up the PH8A and still thinks its the right filter he deserves what he does LOL Theat filter is only ablut 4 times the size of the stock filter and if he manages to get it on the bike he needs the Darwin award too LOL!
