I use ANY 10w40 10w50 15w50 20w40 or 20w50 from the shelf. Just change it often (10h is fine for me) and avoid low density oils such as 0w30, 5 w30 or 0w25. They tend to contain molly and have a low zinc /phosp additive package. They are marketed as Energy Conserving. IMHO Syntethic or not does not make any difference for just a few hours of changing interval

We need a script written to avoid these threads.

IF post title contains 'oil' and Thread body contains 'which' OPEN search crf450r forum with all threads containing the 'oil'

Thanks
