I see many people have different experiences with oils for this bike. I don't want to spend a ton on the oil but I want an oil that will provide excellent lubrication. Some say go with the regular 10W-40, and some say go with the thickest oil you can go for, should I go with the 10W-40 (any oil brand like Castrol, Shell) or a 20W-50 (specifically Valvoline VR1 Racing SAE Motorcycle oil. The current oil in it has literally 0 miles on it. People say yam lube is terrible, but I am not sure. The bike ran fine, I never drove the bike with that oil just revved and idled it. The petcock was leaking which made the oil and gas mix. Too much gas and fuel was in there so of course it spitted out the air intakes, As soon as it did I shut the bike off and didn't start it again. Im thinking Valvoline but I want whats the best or good for this bike. Thank you!!
