2009 Bonneville SE EFI oil type and qty

Hi Folks,

Plan on changing the oil in my 2009 Bonneville SE EFI (mag wheels) myself. Could someone tell me what type of oil needs to go in and how much?

Thanks

It's all in the owners handbook:

motorcycle engine oil which meets specification
API SH or higher AND JASO MA, such as Mobil
1 Racing 4T (fully synthetic) or Mobil Extra 4T
(semi synthetic)

Engine Oil Capacity Guidelines
(dry fill). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4.5 litres 4.5 litres
(oil and filter changes). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3.8 litres 3.8 litres
(oil change only) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . 3.3 litres 3.3 litres

Thank you. I don't have the handbook. Looks like a gallon container of oil should do it.

I've edited my post to include a link to the handbook for download.

I would read the handbook and follow the instructions in it. Don't just "dump" 3.8 litres of oil in as some people seem to do. You may end up overfilled.

You mean like the useless dealers do. Twice they have serviced my bike (purely to keep the warranty valid) and twice thay have overfilled it and I have had to suck a lot out when I got home. There incompetence doesn't come cheap either.

Mine was the break in oil as well as first service that was overfilled.

Not to mention both tires on the T100 were 32 psi and the left bolt holding the seat was loose and the right bolt was ready to fall off.

All for $250.

At least the change tension was right.

My oil level now is bang on,...only after spendy $65 more dollars for oil and filter and doing it myself.

Oil change: Fill the filter (give it some time to soak in while you install the drain bolt, then add more). Install the filter, and put in all that remains of your 4 quart supply of oil except the last 1/2 quart or so. Ride it, check it later, and top up with some of your leftover oil if needed.

Don't forget to install the drain bolt before putting in the new oil. Duh. (I've been there.)

After you do it a couple of times, you'll have a feel for how much you should put in.

Sorry for the question but I am a new owner. Should I choose the 10W-40 or the 15W-50?

Covered and done. Oil threads abound here.

You are in a hot climate, the thicker oil may be in order.
