I run 20w- 50w straight motor oil, any brand you like!
Generic oils is all i use, supertech, parts master, napa etc.
Some folks get real heavy into the oil.
It is always an opinion thing really.

Use what works best for your bike, I didn't have luck with the 15-40 Rotella that a lot use. I went the the Castrol Synthetic 10w40 last time and love it.

Shark:

I used Castrol Syntec in my Honda Rebel and messed up the clutch. :doh: Don't use energy conserving oil (look in the little circle logo to see if it is) in any bike with a wet clutch.

After reading this thread, I bought some Rotella for the first change in my bike. I like synthetic oil and the Rotella is not energy conserving. Castrol Syntec is.
