it would be difficult for a thicker oil to penetrate the cracks and crevices of your engine internals. 5w30 H-Tech & H Tech plus are okay for daily driving.

just stick to what the manufacturer recommends. best would be honda 10w-30 oem oil, and its cheap! no need for those fancy brands, just change it regularly. 5,000kms or 6 months

                                                                                                                          im having second thoughts now about putting thin oils on the b16. but i did achieve better economy and response from the motul 5w30, do you guys think i should switch to a thicker oil, given that it is already a 12 year old engine.

If your engine didn't consume much oil when you used the 5W30 I'd say stick with it.
