    Oil Service Type

    The manual calls for 10W30. No problem, that’s readily available.

    But, it also specifies Service Code SE.

    I searched all over locally and could find SN, SL, SG SJ etc. etc. but no SE.

    Is that really necessary? Would any other be ok? And what do these codes mean?

    What year is your TW? I'm no expert however I think the SE is an older Service Code Designation and that pretty well any of the ones you mention supersedes the SE.

    SE would be the standard back when the manual was made, and it would be the minimum. As mentioned, the higher letter combo supercedes the older standard and is appropriate to use.

    Just chuck some oil in it - she'll be fine ....

    Otherwise, what are your ambient running temperatures, your changing regime, and how hard do you run a cold engine

    10/40 covers most situations .....

    Make sure its JASO MA or better too. todays car oile have a lot of friction modifiers in them that could wreck the clutch. JASO MA is wet clutch compatible.

    That's what we use 99% of the time. But I bought the other one for some reason last year so I put it in one TW and mobile in the other. Never noticed any difference. But I will be putting the mobile one i all three bikes next year.
