Question about 2004 Honda Deauville NTV 650
Motorcycle oils and passenger car oils are very similar, with the exception of a couple of areas that are key to motorcycle operation. The first area concerns common sumps, or the use of motor oil, to lubricate and cool the transmission. As you know, in a passenger car the transmission is lubricated by an ATF fluid, which has frictional properties required for transmission operation. In a motorcycle, where the transmission may be lubricated by the engine oil, an engine oil that does not have the same level of friction modification (for fuel economy) of a typical passenger car engine oil will provide better transmission performance in terms of transmission lock-up and slippage. So motorcycle engine oil does not contain the friction modifiers of a passenger car engine oil. The second area of concern for motorcycle engine oils is that they tend to shear (breakdown viscosity) more quickly than a typical passenger car. Mobil 1 motorcycle oils are designed to provide exceptional protection against viscosity loss.

there is no dipstick on suzki . Stand beside your bike and look on the bottom
ride side of your motor . look for a little
round glass window . That is how you
check . if the oil is half way up the glass
when you stand bike straight up . you are ok. change every 3000, plus filter

I don't recomend the expensive synthetic oils, stick with motorcycle oil only engine component failure i have ever seen was with synthetic, camshaft and rocker arm failure.
