It is brand new but last year's model. Owners' manual requirements for engine oil are JASO MA 10W30 API SG or higher. Honda GN4 is the recommended oil but it will cost me over $10/l whereas we have Delvac Super 1300 10W30 at work and will cost me under $3/l. Will the Delvac work just as well as the Honda oil? For lubing the o-ring sealed chain, I can get Dupont Teflon Dry Lube at Lowes. Will it work well or should I be looking at another lube? Fram 6015 is available very inexpensively.Should I substitute it for the genuine Honda filter? I am not really concerned about voiding the one year warranty using non Honda products. I don't ride much, around 1000 km a year, running errands in the city and taking advantage of free parking for motorcycles in the city of Toronto.
