I run Lucas 10-30 for winter and 15-50 for summer. Lucas makes a specific synthetic motorcycle oil. I have been very satisfied with it. I run the same oil in my tranny on my two strokes as well.

Castrol GTX with a lighter weight for winter.

that's pretty much all I've run in the last 15-20 years in 200,000 miles on a concours, DL1000,DL650,DR650's,KLR's and a WR250R. Never any problems:ride:
