Default Oil Capacity

Ok, before anyone flames on me I did search but, did not have any luck finding the answer.

How many quarts of oil do I need for an oil change. My local Wal-Mart has Mobil-1 4T Full Synthetic 10w-40 for like $8 a quart. They also cary the Fram filter for like $4 although I might try to find a different brand after reading some of your comments.

Thanks

It's 4 quarts, or just under from the top of my head... That's about right for full synthetic prices, if you buy the whole 4 quart easy change container from your bike shop, sometimes you can get a deal on it. Just make sure to get the oil WITHOUT Moly in it...

Very Very Important. Can't put "car oil" into most motorcycles......It's got a WET Clutch........your warranty would be voided if you used the wrong oil. Ask your dealership if you're unsure.

Do not use Fram filters (on anything!); they're junk. Also, don't use any oil that has the "Energy-conserving" starburst symbol on the label; it contains moly, which could, potentially, make your clutch slip. The jury's still out on this one (no reliable documentation), but why take the chance?

Cheers

Bar is absolutely correct. My dealership in Scottsdale is VERY customer oriented. They have told me that they'll sell me any oil filter I want. BUT, the factory Honda Oil Filter is by far the best. I've seen cutaways of many of them.....the Honda has more filtration capacity that Frams or some others. Just my $0.02 worth of thoughts.

I picked up a factory filter from the dealer and then switch to Rotal Purple Max Cycle... I run Royal Purple in my Powerstroke and my GSX-R 1000 also

I used about 3 1/2 quarts... just remember to have the bike level when checking the dip stick, not leaned over on the stand

I've been told by everyone my whole life never to use Fram filters on anything. So I never have and I never will.

I wasn't going to, but I can't help myself, it is on page 92 of the owners manual, I agree with the "don't use Fram" also
