Amsoil 5w-30. Why? 25,000 mile change interval, top quality, superior results in the past.

^Only problem with super long intervals is oil consumption, you could be really low on oil by that 25k mark, so keep an eye on it.

I haven't changed mine yet(<800mi) but when I do, I'll be going Castrol Edge most likely. I've always run Castrol and never had an issue. I'll also be swapping tranny and rear end to RP.

I use Royal Purple Max Cycle 20w50

I use Royal Purple Max Cycle 20w50

What ever you use for oil just make sure it is compatible with a wet clutch - sometimes regular synthetic will cause slipage and that'swhy they recommend motor cycle oil because it has a special additive in it.
