Just make sure to get the 4T oil that is for motorcycles. The Mobil 1 for cars has friction reducers that can damage your clutch disks and make them slip.

Waht you need to know about oil

It's always good to educate yourself.

Great quotes ...

" If you're riding your bike in -40 degrees, I want a picture just before you die."

"These MX bikes hold only about one quart of oil, all of them have marginal cooling systems, and if there's a more severe use of an engine than MX, I don't want to be physically present when it happens."

"If it's below -55c, -65f, stay home. Really."
