Anything that you'd run in any other water cooled bike. 10w-40 is fine. You only want to use 20w-50 if the bike is air cooled. My Vee is a twin. I run Mobil 1 Racing 4T.

Rotella the one that's made for motorcycles it is good stuff and cheap.


Another bit of helpful advice is if ice cream is to hard to scoop just put the metal spoon in the microwave it works wonders.

That doesn't work as well as putting the spoon in the microwave. Don't be an idiot.

the bike is liquid cooled so it changes the typical preconceived idea a bit (such as 20w-50 for harleys), 10w-30 is specified in the manual. I'm running 15w-40
