Post by n0024572 » Sun Aug 07, 2011 1:44 pm

Brand new to the GL1800, came over from aq Victory TC.

What is the preferred oil for the GL1800?

I also see alot about th belly pan. Are they worth the cost?

The belly pan is a must have on the 1800. Protects the coolant overflow bottle.

As to oil there are probably more oil threads on the net than anything else. Google it or search here too.
