as long as its rated as a motorcycle oil it should be fine...personally I change the oil so much that its not worth the extra money of synthetic....I rarely get 1500 miles on an oil change, so I refuse to spring for the extra money..

Shell Rottella T full synthetic 5w 40, excellent oil and not that expensive. A lot of people use it and not a hyatus of a problem.

Yeah i forgot to mention that! i dont know if you have the ext warranty but i do and my dealer told me as long i buy the Kawi synth and oem filter im SAFE with the warranty!

But you gotta make sure they record it in the computer (NO CASH DEALS) so they 100% sure you bought the right stuff and keep your receipts.

and they use full synth on the tracks all day so the guy who told you that crap must be a broke MF lol! and i dont remember but i think the Kawi Synth is manufactured by Motul!
