Can anyone give me the oil specs for the '05/'06 1050 Speed Triple?

I'm looking in particular for those specs suitable for warmer climates -- Australia / South Africa / California etc.

API Classification:
Viscosity:
JASO T 903 Standard:
Suggested Brand:

Txs in anticipation! Gary

Thanks Limey,

Now I don't have to buy one of those. You see, something good can come from a Newbie question.

We newbies do have our uses afterall!

Talking about my owners manual: The viscosity is that for the northern hemisphere. There however is no JASO T 903 Standard rating. Can anyone help out with this one?

Well, that's simple enough.

If you live south of the Equator, you just reverse the numbers. Instead of 15W40, you want 40W15.

Seriously...the whole point of a multi-viscosity oil, especially a synthetic whose temperature characteristics are going to remain stable over the long haul, is that you don't need different specs; except in such extreme conditions that 99% of the world's riders are smart enough not to hit the road then anyway.
