    I thought I would put together a list of use full service facts. This will come in handy a lot when wanting to know what kind or how much of something. All are taken from the Honda Pioneer Service Manual.
    Can we get this sticky'ed ?

    Differential Oil:
    Honda recommends a API classification of GL-4 or GL-5, Do not use oils labeled as energy conserving.
    - Use Type - HYPOID gear oil
    - Viscosity (weight) - SAE 80
    - Recommend using Honda shaft drive oil.
    - After drain fill the differential with:
    ---- Front - 22.5 US oz (665 cm3)
    ---- Rear - 4.7 US oz (140 cm3)

    Engine Oil
    Honda recommends a API classification of SG or higher, do not use oils labeled as energy conserving or resource conserving.
    - Viscosity (weigt) SAE 10W-30. Other approved colder weather areas can use 5W-30, or 0W-30
    - JASO T 903 standard - MA
    - Suggested oil - Pro Honda GN4 4-stroke oil or Honda 4-stroke oils or and equivalent 4-stroke motorcycle oil.
    - After drain and filter change refill with
    ---- 3.1 US qt (2.9L) of oil

    - After drain only refill with
    ---- 2.9 US qt (2.7L)
    - After disassembly refill with
    ---- 4.3 US qt (4.1L)

    Fuel
    Honda states that only unleaded fuels can be used in the Pioneer.
    - Type - Unleaded
    - Octane number - 86 or higher.
    - Fuel tank capacity - 7.9 US gal (30L)

    Coolant
    Honda recommends using only Pro Honda HP coolant. However a equivalent high-quality ethylene glycol antifreeze containing corrosion protection inhibitors specifically recommended for aluminum engines can be sued.
    - Capacity - 3.6 US qt (3.4L) of 50/50 solution.
    - Solution 50/50, 50% antifreeze 50% distilled water. Do not increase this for cold weather areas as it will only decrease the cooling performance.
    - Fill reserve tank to between Min and Max level.

    Spark Plug
    - Standard spark plug - BKR5E-11 (NGK) or K16PR-U11 (DENSO)
    - Gap - 0.039-0.043 in (1.00-1.10mm)

    Brake Fluid
    - Honda DOT 4 brake fluid or equivalent DOT 4

    Tires
    - Front 10 psi (70 kPa) MAX
    - Rear 12 psi (80 kPa) to 18 psi (120 kPa) MAX

    Battery

    If you have any other use full information please leave it below.

    Rear Differential Capacity

    Hi TrailTamer - is that true? Rear diff capacity is only a little over 1/2 cup? Do you think that's a typo in the manual? Thanks

    Re: Pioneer Usefull Service Facts

    You mean as its too much or to little?

    I think the front is actually alot.

    My foreman takes less then 3 oz in the rear.

    If you are comparing to the Big Red diff... remember the diff in the Pioneer is back to the normal closed diff vs the open diff the Big Red had.

    What you talking about... open diff and closed diff. 3oz is not much.

    The rear diff on my Rubicon takes very little gear oil, so I wouldn't be surprised that the Pioneer would be the same. My front diff will take more though.

    Re: Pioneer Usefull Service Facts

    I changed my rear axle gear oil and went with Royal Purple synthetic gear max 75w140 hoping to tame down the gear whine a bit. It helped a little but nothing drastic. I think some gear noise is coming from the tranny but I'll definitely stick to honda oil for the engine/tranny.

    How often does everyone change their spark plug? I didn't see that in the manual but maybe I need to look harder.

    Weep hole started leaking. Replacement was a total B. Been trying to do a short write-up but haven't got around to it. Pictures in my gallery.
    I now think having the weep hole tube is important. In theory, it could hold a air pocket and prevent sand/water from entering. Not sure mine even had a tube! I recommend adding one.

    That sucks. Hopefully this isn't common. If you do a write up I'd like to know where you install the tube on the weep hole
