Engine Oil
Engine oil consumption varies and oil quality
deteriorates according to riding conditions and
time elapsed.
Check the engine oil level regularly, and add the
recommended engine oil if necessary. Dirty oil or
old oil should be changed as soon as possible.
Selecting the Engine Oil
For recommended engine oil, see
“Specifications.” 2 P. 133
If you use non-Honda engine oil, check the
label to make sure that the oil satisfies all of the
following standards:
JASO T 903 standard
: MA
SAE standard
: 10W-30
API classification
: SG or higher
The JASO T 903 standard is an index for engine
oils for 4-stroke motorcycle engines. There are
two classes: MA and MB. For example, the
following label shows the MA classification.
The SAE standard grades oils by their viscosity.
The API classification specifies the quality and
performance rating of engine oils. Use SG or
higher oils, excluding oils marked as “Energy
Conserving” or “Resource Conserving” on the
circular API service symbol.
