Rotella T6 = excellent choice. Great protection at a reasonable price.
Fram Filters = cheap and easy path to a short engine life. Go with Wix and/or NAPA gold. There are others, see past oil threads for more info on filters.
Always replace the crush washer when doing an oil change.

Look down near the bottom of the forum. There is a whole section devoted to nothing but oil threads.

I agree, cheap is not the way to go on oil. This does a lot for you engine, trany, and clutch. It is important to get the right type for your clutch. JASA only oil.. Wix filters...

Rotella T6 is JASO-MA rated and also has a very heavy additive package as it is for use in Diesels which require more protection than gas engines. I use it in my 4 wheelers too as oils intended for cars now have a diluted additive package that does little to protect an engine if you intend to keep that vehicle for a long time.

hockey dude, have you not looked around the forum enough yet to know NOT to ask which oil to use? You'll get reamed.

I always go for overkill when it comes to oil. If a bike is air cooled, I choose Amsoil synthetic. Yes it is expensive and not necessary, but the true advantage of synthetic is heat protection. In the water cooled Hondas I owned it was a different story, but air cooled engines get all the protection I can give it.

I also use Witchdoctors stainless steel reusable mesh filters which allow more oil flow.
