Watch out for synthetic on your new bike. IF you want to use synthetic, you first have to have a few k's on the bike I believe...

im switching to fully synthetic as soon as i get my bike back from the shop (ive got 3000 miles)

dont put fully synthetic in too early, e.g. before 1000 miles.

I have run BelRay EXP Semi-Synthetic in everything that I own. Personally, I don't have any experience with Royal Purple, all I know is that it is damn expensive. For the first few changes, the kind of oil doesn't matter that much, as it will be changed out sooner than oil that you will use down the road.

As for the jack-offs that said that you "pissed some people off", let them be pissed. This is a forum, come here and ask questions. Ride safe.

i just changed my oil today and i used kawi chem. i heard you are supposed to use non synthetic for 1500 mile, then if you want switch to a semi synthetic. i read a forum in here somewhere some guy killed his clutch using royal purple. i dont know how much of this is true but i use kawi chem and my bike runs great.
