    from my experience with 2 bikes the factory fill oil is sportmax 10w 40. both first services the dealer used sportmax 10w40, not synthetic 50 or 60. they said they dont care what the book says, and to use regular oil for at least 1000 miles for proper ring seating. 1st bike i ignored them and changed to synthetic at 600 miles and it burned oil. next bike i did as they said and it doesnt use a drop, the sportmax 10w40 is available online and in dealers.

    Hi,

    I recently purchased a used Duke with low miles (not even broken in). You mentioned on my intro thread to use Motorex Sportsmax oil. The manual states to use 10W/60 or 10W/50 as an alternative. The only Motorex "non-synthetic" oils I can find are these:

    Sportsmax Premium 15W/50
    Sportsmax Premium 10W/40
    Sportsmax Mineral Oil 10W/40

    Would it be ok to use any of these or should I use a different brand? Even better, do you know where I can find the Sportsmax 10W/60?

    Thank you!
    Jeff
