you are better off going to wal-mart and getting the cheap stuff in the 5 quart jug and flushing without a filter.
Good Luck!

go get some cheap oil and 1 or 2 bottles of marvel mystery, and go off the directions on the marvel mystery bottle...i think u drain the oil then put 1 quart oil and 2 quarts marvel mystery and then run in for like 1 minute turn off and drain again///then plug it back up and go 2 quarts oil and 1 quart marvel mystery and run it another minute or two///then drain again and change oil filter and put new fresh oil in...the marvel mystery is some wierd stuff that makes the water stick to it or something and pulls it out when it gets drained out

Castrol 5W30 is probably ENERGY CONSERVING oil,which means it is not recommended for Honda's wet clutch.It won't damage anything,but I'd change it as soon as you can with any 10W40 oil,or try to find AMSOIL 0W40 ATV oil(full synthetic).

You will be fine. If it makes you feel better spend 5 minites and read this well known article...

In my experiences oil definetely matters. I had an 04 500im Cat that kept jumping out of gear. I used Amsoil and it stopped jumping out of gear and shifted smoother. A while later tranny jumped out of gear again so I took in to shop. Turned out there was a mechanical problem and after fixed never jumped out of gear again. My point is: Tranny shifting and gear jumping characteristics changed with oil.

Good luck
