I have always had good luck with Motul 300V. First switched during the summer when I commuted on my ZX10, noticed a drop in temps and it seemed to run smoother.

Fully synthetic, then pick whatever brand you are loyal too. Can't go wrong with motul or amsoil.

The racer's secret is to use baby seal oil. But not just any baby seal oil, only the finest. Baby seal oil that was exctracted from baby seals that were clubbed to death with...other baby seals.

I just keep it simple with my oil.... I use Rotella T6 in my bike (Honda VFR800 RWB) Land Rover Discovery 2 and in the VW. This oil keeps it simple for me.

feed it caviar or feed it hot dog wieners............ it doesn't matter. The bike will be running for may thousands of miles after you're done with it, provided you and the future owners use the proper grade of oil and change it at the scheduled intervals.
don't waste your money on expensive synthetic oil. Unless it makes you feel like you're treating your bike to something special, like super unleaded fuel.

mobil 1 4t is widely available so that is what I use. If one of the other full synthetic brands became widely available at auto parts and 4t wasn't, I would probably switch.

I just go fully synthetic, as far as manufacturer, it's really up to you on which brand that you prefer.
