    I would use the least expensive as they are all good. I have always used fully synthetic, no problems with any vehicle in hundreds of thousands of miles over the years.  :152:

    I just purchased a new 660. Dealer said the oil in the bike is Castrol 10W40 full synthetic. Iím taking the bike to the dealer for the 600 mile service. Iíll do the oil and filter changes after that. Iím surprised the oil/filter change interval is so long. I donít feel comfortable going past 3000 or 4000 miles. Itís cheap insurance.
