Lots to choose from. If you search the site you will find lots of threads. Popular choices include Rotella and Delo. Some are passionate about their oil. Some are passionate about synthetics or mineral. But all agree, change frequently.

Just make sure the oil has no friction modifiers added. Not good for a wet clutch.
I uses Shell Rotella synthetic in both of my motorcyles as well as our three atvs.

Does Catrol Syntec Blend fall into this catagory?

Does it state on the labeling whether or not it has friction modifiers added?
