Does this apply to all 'Blades then..or all bikes in general. There's nothing in the owners manual about what kind of oil to use, only the type of viscosity you should be using.go full get the best stuff. just wait a bit till the rings seat in before going full synth. i think it is like 2 to 3 k (us miles) before it is recomended. I use mobile 1 car stuff without the energy symbol. doesn't make the clutch slip, and cheaper than moto full synth. I use mine at the track all the time and abuse the clutch alot and no slip, but you'll find folks that swear tha car oil does make it slip (bullshit).
go full get the best stuff. just wait a bit till the rings seat in before going full synth.
THis is from Honda UK:There's absolutely no reason to do this. This is old information.
I've talked with multiple Synthetic oil manufacturers and they've all admitted that there's no reason to do this. Heck; Porsche and the Vette are factory filled with Synthetic.
THis is from Honda UK:
Thank you for your enquiry to Honda UK. The Oil should be 10 W 30 or 10 W 40 semi-synthetic.
Fully synthetic oil should not be used on any modern bike (not just
Honda) until it has covered 5000 to 10,000 miles. If you want to know the
technical reason, look at the August 2004 T.W.O magazine, page 73. This
information is from the Castrol Technology Centre who, apparently, are the
highest authority on this type of thing.
THats good enough for me, think I'll stick with semi until I get some more miles on the clock.
