This motorcycle belongs to my SIL. It is a Honda VTX1800, water cooled, 2003 bought new this summer with 10 miles. Two previous oil changes. 95% Highway miles.
code:After letting this oil sit in the pan for a week, quite a bit of visible alum. particles. Also Honda warned him that he cannot use any oil that contains moly or it would void his warranty. Good way to ensure that he uses the $4 a bottle stuff from them. Have not been able to convince him to use 15W40 Delvac or Delo. Viscosity took a ride South, but also these 2500 miles were on the highway and ambient temps from 80-100F.
