Hi All,

I live in Washington state where it's not such a hot climate.  Can I use 10W40 motorcycle oil in my UCE C5 (that's all that's available at my local bike shop) or do I need to find some 20W50?

Thanks for your help.

I used Mobil One 20W 50 full synthetic when I did my first oil change. When I picked up my bike after the recall work, Aaron at Interstate Motorcycles said what he put in and recommended was Amsoil 0w 40 for motors with hydraulic lifters.

Just a point that may be of interest guys.

My RE dealer used full synthetic oil as opposed to semi.
"Although it states semi in the hand book"
He did that on advise from watsonian and squires.

Aaron did my service last week and put in Amisol 0-40 in mine too, I'll use what they reccomend, sure looks thin though. These UCE engines are a brave new world for me.
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

The UCE oil system descibed in detail on the "Buzz Blog" is excellent, and fully expands on the whole engine/gearbox lub system.
Thanks Kevin for that
