Honda covered my started module without fuss. :confused2I think the irony in posts asking "will I void my warranty?" is that the warranty doesn't really seem to cover **** all, and it only lasts a year. I don't think I've read one post from a member saying that their dealership happily covered something under warranty. The dealership always seems to fight you on it. And it only lasts a year. Nevermind the warranty. You'll be paying for any service you get. Hopefully you don't need any [exceptional] service.
A common theme seems to be that there's no such thing as "better" when it comes to things like this. It's just "different". It's best to put what the bike wants, I guess... Honda is building the bikes in Thailand! I'm sure if the bikes required a thicker oil for hotter climates they would have noted it. Just make sure you read the owner's manual (which I don't have in front of me right now). I'm sure 10W-30 is fine. And 10W-40 probably won't hurt. Even if it does you'll never know it was the oil that caused it.
Did you check with the bike leaning on it's kickstand, or did you stand it straight upright the way the owners manual says to? It's always going to read low if it's on the stand. If you filled it up to between the lines when it's leaning on the stand, then you seriously overfilled.I'm pretty new to this owning a vehicle thing. I checked the oil window today and there was very little visible. So I went off to Super Cheap to see what I could find.
