Honda CB1000R Engine Oil Capacity and Best Oil Specs



Honda CB1000R (or CB1000RA) is a sport nakedbike motorcycle made by Honda, produced from 2008 to 2016 with the code SC60, and then continued from 2018 until now with the code SC80. This motorcycle has an engine displacement of 998 cc from a combination of a bore stroke of 75 mm × 56.5 mm. 

The difference between the products with the SC60 and SC80 codes lies in the significant difference in power between these two motorcycles, which is obtained from the increase in engine compression in the SC80 to 11.6:1 from the previous 11.2:1. The SC80 is capable of producing power of 143 hp at 10,500 rpm, while the SC60 only produces 123 hp at 10,000 rpm. As for the engine oil capacity and engine oil specifications, they are the same for all versions, which we will discuss below.

Checking the Engine Oil capacity

  1. If the engine is cold, idle the engine for 3 to 5 minutes. 
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and wait for 2 to 3 minutes. 
  3. Place your motorcycle in an upright position on a firm, level surface. 
  4. Check that the oil level is between the upper level and lower level marks on the oil level inspection window.


Recommended engine oil specs

Engine oil consumption varies and oil quality deteriorates according to riding conditions and time elapsed. 

Check the engine oil level regularly, and add the recommended engine oil if necessary. Dirty oil or old oil should be changed as soon as possible. 

Selecting the Engine Oil 



If you use non-Honda engine oil, check the label to make sure that the oil satisfies all of the following standards: 

● JASO T 903 standard*1: MA
● SAE standard*2: 10W-30
● API classification*3: SG or higher 

*1. The JASO T 903 standard is an index for engine oils for 4-stroke motorcycle engines. There are two classes: MA and MB. For example, the following label shows the MA classification.


*2. The SAE standard grades oils by their viscosity.
*3. The API classification specifies the quality and performance rating of engine oils. Use SG or higher oils, excluding oils marked as “Energy Conserving” or “Resource Conserving” on the circular API service symbol.



Adding Engine Oil

If the engine oil is below or near the lower level mark, add the recommended engine oil.

  1. Remove the oil fill cap. Add the recommended oil until it reaches the upper level mark.
    ▶Place your motorcycle in an upright position on a firm, level surface when checking the oil ▶level. Do not overfill above the upper level mark.
    ▶Make sure no foreign objects enter the oil filler opening. u Wipe up any spills immediately.
  2. Securely reinstall the oil fill cap

NOTICE Overfilling with oil or operating with insufficient oil can cause damage to your engine. Do not mix different brands and grades of oil. They may affect lubrication and clutch operation. For the recommended oil and oil selection guidelines

Changing Engine Oil & Filter 

Changing the oil and filter requires special tools. We recommend that you have your motorcycle serviced by your dealer. Use a new Honda Genuine oil filter or equivalent specified for your model.

 NOTICE Using the wrong oil filter can result in serious damage to the engine. 

  1. If the engine is cold, idle the engine for 3 to 5 minutes. 
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and wait for 2 to 3 minutes. 
  3. Place your motorcycle on a firm, level surface.
  4. Place a drain pan under the drain bolt. 
  5. Remove the oil fill cap, drain bolt, and sealing washer to drain the oil.
  6. Remove the oil filter cover by removing the bolts and washers.
  7. Remove the oil filter with a filter wrench and let the remaining oil drain out. Make sure the prior seal is not stuck to the engine.
    ▶Discard the oil and oil filter at an approved recycling center 


  8. Apply a thin coat of engine oil to the rubber seal of a new oil filter.
  9. Install the new oil filter and tighten.
    Torque: 19 lbf·ft (26 N·m, 2.7 kgf·m) 
  10. Install a new sealing washer onto the drain bolt. Tighten the drain bolt.
    Torque: 22 lbf·ft (30 N·m, 3.1 kgf·m) 
  11. Fill the crankcase with the recommended oil and install the oil fill cap.
    ▶Required oil When changing oil & engine oil filter: 3.2 US qt (3.0 L)
    ▶When changing oil only: 2.9 US qt (2.7 L) 
  12. Check the oil level. 
  13. Check that there are no oil leaks. 
  14. Install the parts in the reverse order of removal.

Engine oil change interval



By examining the image from the official manual above, we can observe that the oil change is performed at the first 1000 kilometers, then at 12,800 kilometers, and subsequent multiples. Additionally, it is advised to replace the oil filter at the first 1000 kilometers, and then at 25,600 kilometers, and subsequent multiples. Nevertheless, it's not strictly necessary to adhere to this timetable as driving conditions vary in each area. It's prudent to change the oil if it appears dark and low.
