Any thing that is NOT K & N. There are some serious and ongoing issues with their oil filters, the bolt welds come undone dropping your oil out all over your rear tire (dangerous) and if you don't notice in time sized motor.
I was a long time K & N fan, and am annoyed that I had the drain/replace my oil, just to get their ****ty filter off.
I replaced it with a HifloFiltro.
I dont think there is a huge difference in oils. Just as long as you have one made for motorcycles (they are made different for the wet clutch).
As long as its synthetic and probably 10w40 your good to go. The motul 5100 mentioned above is popular.
