Generally, I'd agree with Dave about 10-30 being good for most small engines... but I notice these sort of blanket statements are usually made by people from relatively mild climates. Down here in Texas, we regularly top out above the 100's in April. And I'm not talking single-day unusual events either. This year, we have had 77 consecutive days of 100+ temps thus far. The hottest summer on record... EVER! In June I rode through Terlingua on my '97 and it was 114... at noon! Three days later I was in Del Rio at a stop light and a bank sign there said 118. I notice william_84 is in Tampico, Mexico (a very nice place by the way...) and uses Castrol 20-50... it's got to be hot down there!

At these kinds of temps... the extra protection of that heavier oils sure makes me feel better. I use the Castrol 20-50 too.
