I recommend using Mobil One 15W 50 after your break in period. Use for 2,000 miles and change oil and filter.

Good luck!

The synthetic is supposed to stand up to higher heat and higher revs better... I'm going to switch at around 2000 miles or so...

Synthetic rules...People will have arguments for hours over it...But I would use synthetics...it's hard to wear out an engine running synthetic. That's why they tell you not to use it for break-in...it doesn't let the rings / cylinder cross hatch wear in enough...Furthermore... I read an article about a CBR going 100k+ miles on synthetic oil...And the valves were always checked but never need adjustment. Dunno how credible it was...but sounds good to me! LOL
