600 mile oil change

I'm at 600 miles and just got a filter. I was going to put Suzuki oil in it but they don't carry it around here. So do I need to keep using mineral oil or can I switch to a synthetic? I put Motul 300 in my other bikes so thats what will end up in this. I just wonder how long I have to keep using the mineral? Tia.

I run Lucas semi synthetic because I'm cheap. Smzoil normally. You can change now

At the 600 you switch to a regular oil. Check the oil thread for options, and there are lots of them. I'm agnostic when it comes to oil and just used one that seemed frequently recommended. It has worked out fine.
