I just started running diesel car oil in mine since race season is over... I usually run Amsoil but have heard diesel car oil works good(and its 1/4 of the price). There are 2 VW jettas in the driveway so this was a no brainer. Its been in the bike for a couple weeks, including light trail riding and a track seesion. So far so good.

Mobil 1 10/40w synthetic in quads, in my boat, in all four of my cars. When my buddy builds race bikes, he gets the most horsepower on the dyno using mobile 1, more than any other oil. He has tried them all. When he tears them down they have the least wear. I'm sold?
