A quick search should lamd you tons of info on this, it's a surprisingly personal and polarizing topic to some

I've got a B4 (practically the same motor woth lower rpms) and stick with Motul 7100. Works fine, though if I go late on a change it gets pretty nasty. I use eom filters, won't touch a reuseable one, but I'm sure there may be a better oil choice. It works for me thoughn so I'll stick with it.

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

I use Motorex powesynt since many years!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I buy mine by the case directly from Eni USA (used to be Agip). My bike calls for 10w60 full synth. Even with shipping it is less than a dealer price. Of course, I have enough for more than a couple of oil changes.

@Majmv: So, are you going to use Motul? I mean it does have the most recommendations here, in this thread, today.

I'm not sure where you live in this world, so making an oil recommendation for your bike, your weather, and your riding style is nigh on impossible. What I use and recommend for oil may not be available to you in your country. Furthermore, it may not suit your wallet.

AS has been said, the recommended oil is in the user's manual. That is what the manufacturer suggests. I am not smarter than them. I do have personal preference based on a bunch of reading.

I will say this: Use a quality oil of the proper viscosity and rating. Change it within the maintenance schedule. The bike will be fine.
