Its fairly simple, the high quality oils are much better for your engine, and will last longer.

It doesent exacty matter what brand you put in, just as long as it is a type specificly designed motorcycles.

and even then, the cheap stuff will work in a pinch, but you dont wont to leave it in your bike more than a ride or two, because it will wear out much sooner, than a higher quality oil.

Good luck :banghead:

Motul 300v is a good oil. In your temp range, 15w-50 is OK, too.
