oil viscosity check

Recommended Posts

Hi I need to do an oil and filter change. My zed is of higher mileage. Currently have 5w 30 in it and going to change to 5w 40.  Do i need to do any think different from a regular oil change with there being a change in viscosity?

 

Thanks

Yes, remain fully synthetic and choose a decent brand.

that's all then no extra special drain procedure?

Just a standard change.

 

Oil is oil, there's no worries of incompatibility like with coolant or brake fluid. You can mix 5w30 and 5w40 with no issues, but the little bit leftover should be negligible anyway, and no different to the old, dirty oil that remains normally.
