I would recommend a good quality synthetic blend. i personally use Golden Spectro if you can get it in your area you can't go wrong with it, all i have used for over 30 years. i would use 20/50 if you are in a warmer climate, 10/40 if colder than 60 deg average.

Use only JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for hot climate/long distance riding. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label. It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oils will help your engine run cooler , shift easier, and last longer.
