I used Mobil One 10w40 synthetic motorcycle oil, available at Canuck Tire for the first 65,000km or so. It runs about 12 clams a litre (full litre).
I have since switched over to Amsoil 0-40, also available at canuck tire for about 9.50 a litre. Its an american quart, so 946cc or whatever. With a new filter, you will have about 20cc left. No waste, nice.
I credit the use of synthetic oil for the fact that my valves have not required adjustment, not even at 89,000km. Runs as quiet as the day she was new.
