Whatever the Honda manual says is just fine. Mobil1 is fine too. Diesel oils like Rotella-T are fine also. Any motorcycle specific oil that meets the manual's criteria will do.

It's pretty easy. All the stuff you hear that sez your bike will last longer if you use "Brand X" is basically BS. Use a good oil and change it regularly and you will be just fine and your engine will last as long as the guy who pays $50 per quart.

Pep Boys Pure as Gold! It it worked in that Studebaker, it'll work just fine in your 'wing...
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
