If you read the manual , you will see the required specs, dino or synthetic.

If you look at the back of the oil bottle you will see the specs.

THEN

Have a nice time finding an oil that suits.

AND

Remember just because an oils JASO numbers exceed what is stated by the manufacturer it doesnt mean that the oil is improved or better.

Mobil One MX4T has all the requirements by the manufacturer and is a blended oil.

Maxxis is another. If I even spelled that correctly.

About a year ago Sport Rider Mag. did a write-up on cycle oils. You might be able to find it using a seach on their site. Good read.

Motul man here..

Change your oil regularly and run any oil that meets factory spec. I run Motul 300V since 4K miles and have had no complaints. Now at 28K miles. Change at 2500 on the dot.

I just used Repsol this last change on my 05 because the dealers around here don't carry anything else. Can't complain though. I will go back to my Maxum Extra come spring though. (10W-40 for both)

Do a search...you'll have so much to read you won't even care about what type anymore.
