What kind of oil do you use, how often do you change it?

Just change the oil last night on my Shadow. Using the Honda oil that I had. Will be going to AMSOIL for both bikes from here on.

I actually run both, depending on the current sale. 10w-40 Amsoil or Mobil MXT-4. Change about every 1500-2000 miles.

Believe it or not, I saw it at one of the local Wal-Marts the other day. It wasn't with the other motor oils .. it was off by itself near the other motorcycle stuff .. helmets, etc.

Of course, as soon as everyone figures out it's there, they'll stop stocking it.

I use regular Mobil 1 goldcap/redcap 15w-50, with a Honda filter and change every 5,000 miles. Worked great for me so far! I get the 5qt jug of Mobil 1 for $19.88

Here are some other posts about this and lots of links to off-site research...

POLL ^^^^.

I plan to do the oil changes every 2k miles... So far I only have about 750 miles and I've already changed the oil twice...

Just to get those break-in particles out of the engine ...
sounds like you got a new bike, update your profile... "None at the moment."

I change my oil in the middle and end of riding season. That way it has fresh oil to start with. I put more miles on the oil than I should but I always check for metal shavings and or just dirty oil.
