I replace rebel oil with 0w20 and drove about 1000Miles. i feel i have lost power 30% power. now i plan to replace original recommended oil with 10w30. Will i get the power or i need replace clutch. Also is there any oil filter in 2009rebel ?
Welcome to the forum. The 0W-20 oil contains friction modifiers, which will damage the clutch plates. Does the bike lose power more in the upper gears? If yes, the fiber clutch plates will have to be replaced.
If you want to use 10W-30 oil, make sure it is for motorcycles, as most oil of that weight in North America is for use in automobiles and also contains friction modifiers. Motorcycle specific oils cost significantly more than standard oils, and aren't necessarily better. 15W-40 oils by Castrol and Shell Rotella are what many members here use. If the label says meets JASO standards, it is safe to use in your Rebel or any motorcycle with a wet clutch.
Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
I changed clutch and plates and put in 10w30 motorcyle oil. there is absolutely no power in the bike. is there any way i can get owner's manual for 2009 honda rebel. why there is no power cannot understand.
