I bought my bike used and have riddin it a few times so its time to change the oil. Now im told that i HAVE to use honda oil only!(somthing about one botle with a red lable and one with gold). But others have told me just use castrol gtx 10-40 in both sides and call it a day. :bang: any help or anything i should know?

Ok thanks. And no i dont have the manual. So i went ahead an got some oil for it today and the dude at the honda dealer said to run the same 10-40 in both sides. Is that normal? I freind of mine that also rides a 450 says that the motor side needs a oil with moly and the trany side needs oil without moly. :bang:
