Why would you want to do such a thing to a Goldwing? Slick 50 contains Moly compounds that will be rather detrimental if not fatal to a wet clutch. Go with the tried and true, if you look on this and other GW sites you will find that Rotella 15w40 in either conventional or synthetic is the oil of choice. Either way, there are two sure ways to start flames and a controversy, Oil is one of them, and the other a gentleman never discusses.

Please save you money for regular oil changes, not friction modifiers. I use Delo400 from Walmart. $10 a gallon.

I found the same sale, running Delo even as we speak. Depends on what I find cheaper, Rotella or Delo.
