Default Check Transmision Oil Often During Break-In

Only 200 miles and the transmission oil is black and low. Using Pro Honda HP4S 10 W 30. Toped it off a bit and its running smooth again. 600 miles before the first change like the owners manual says would really be pushing it.

I changed my oil around the 600 mile mark and it looked fairly new. I plan on changing it again soon when I get at 2K.

Trasmission oil??
First of all if your oil level was low you have a problem, second of all did you change the oiled filter also?
Also 10w30 is not the correct oil to use on a bike

That's interesting. Makes me wonder if the dealer preformed the initial maintenance. I am going to flush it and start pre-ride checking. Running a skosh low seems to really limit the rpms.

No filter on transmission. Maybe your thinking - gasoline model?

He's got an Empulse guys. You know the electric bike.


I recently found one for sale privately. I guess the person thought they would go up in value and bought it to hold on to because it was sitting in their house with no miles on it and wearing a high price tag. I think it would be a fun bike for staying local and commuting.

do you have to stand the bike up vertical to check the oil.

Do what I ask in red letters to help you and us. If you can see it go to your computer and look

It would be nice for him to post exactly what model if not brand he is talking about. It may indeed be the electric model.

Yep Vicvison is right he does have an Empulse. No wonder everything he has posted sounds like jibberish.

Listing his bike would be nice just so we know.

However, in his defense the thread was created in the Empulse TT forum.

Honestly I didn't even know the Empulse had fluid to change.

How do you know what oil is in your bike when there is only 200 miles on the clock ? The oil is in the bike when delivered in the crate ....
Any wetclutch 15W40 will do, ... Is this HONDA 10W30 wet clutch ? And why only 30 weight ? Is is freezing where you live ?
