You can run any type of motor oil. 10- 40 works good in my kx250 . I run what ever is on sale , I usually run castrol , just make sure that on the back it does not say energy conserving in the little circle on the back of the bottle.
You dont have to buy the expensive oil , but i usually change it every week . Thats consists of 1 ride during the week then racing on the weekend. We change it before race day .
