hi mate i too have the little honda great bike ,they get ridden pretty hard down these parts well the manual says 1.5 litres of mineral oil but for some reason i usally put in 1.6 litres ,the manual also quotes change oil every 3000km but thats using mineral oil we usally change it every 2000kms but as i said we do give them a very hard time. if you use semi sythic sure you could do more miles .:mchappy:

Thanks amigo for your reply,now going to change the oil!!

yes they are exelent bikes(tornados), i like the 6 gears it has.
Some people say HONDA brasil is less quality then honda japon,
But with 30.000km it is as good as when i bought it, these bikes
are perfect honda quality.
Anyone traveling to Latin America should look at this bike as a option
to travel on!!Light ,fun,fast, good looking, parts everywhere....
O.k. ....now i am really gonne change the oil......
entonces...hasta luego amigo!!

Honda Tornado Oil Capacity
1.5-1.6 liters without changing the oil filter.
1.8-1.9 liters with filter change.

They seem to run better on Castrol than the Motul 5100.
The Motul seems to foam up on long rides and suffers thermal breakdown about 500 kms sooner.
Paper filter elements should be replaced every other oil change.
With the Castrol semi-synthetic, you can safely operate 2500-3000 km intervals.

I agree with you, they really are great bikes!
I have about 35,000 kms on mine and never an issue.
