The Manual says i can use SAE 10w-30......does this mean i can use any motor oil that has that viscosity? I live in south Florida and all year round its pretty hot.....is that a good oil to use? How many quarts does the 250r use?
:confused:

Oil is probably the most widely discussed topic on any motorcycle forum, why don't you do a search? Or as suggested, look in your manual.

When I bought oil from my dealer they tried to give me 3 quarts of 10-40..i made them give me 2 quarts of 10-30 instead...i guess either works just as well..I would say 10-40 is slightly better for hotter climates....I cant believe they didnt even know how much oil the motorcycle I bought from them held

what !? you live where !? :confused:

the Xspurts down here say: "use thicker oil bro , is hot down here , you want thicker oil"

thicker oil is better but used that Honda 10w-30 crap on this one every oil change and she runs fine :confused:

a little Lucas too ;)

Use what the manual says, in fact use Honda full syn.

The thinner oil allows the engine to hit the fuel shutoff quicker :)
