    I tried! Need more help.

    Guys, i tried the search function but there are only so many ways to search "oil" when you have to have 4 letter words for the search function to work.

    I am helping a buddy wityh his 2004 R12x. We need to get details on:

    Oil type
    Oil Filter
    Spark plugs
    Anything else recommended.

    The ski is completely stock, and price is no issue, so if I can get the supplies from one site/store, it would make it easier on me. Also, any other recommended services/maintenance that needs to be done.

    Also, can anyone point me in the right direction on the specs for this ski? He says his ski is gold/black, but I see the colors are silver/black. Did Honda make a gold/black R12x, and maybe he has his years wrong? Thanks in advance. --Jeremy

    Im just running regular Honda GN4 oil as recomended by the book.... but if money is no issue you could put in Honda HP4 or their fully synthertic version. As for the oil filter, im running a KN-204. Its the same filter found on a lot of the honda motorcycles such as my 1000rr.

    This is the only photo I could find of a Black & Gold, but it's a 2005 F-12x GPScape. Your buddy's could have custom paint, or might not be an R12x.
