lots of opinions on oil many use Rotella but any good oil that does not have friction modifiers in it is OK..

Lots of threads on oil do a search

I used Honda GN4 and an OEM filter on my 1500 and will do the same for my GL650I. Because my Wing was used for commuting I changed the oil more frequently.

I have a '96 GL1500a Aspencade, 125,000+ miles (haven't looked at odometer in 5 months could be more) and since I bought it used with 57,000 I have used Honda GN4 10-40 oil and a Honda filter, changed every 3,000. Previous owner did the same, why mess with what works!
