Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 6 months ago.

you should use 10W30 oil but the key is to use one that handles heat and oes not breakdown

The one you find in local parts store will be Mobile one full synthetic 10W30 , if you want to go deeper, I would use the MOTUL BRAND , that is the best oil money can buy and does not breaks down easy, very high temperature rating on it. i used it in my race car, you drive 3000 miles on it and still clean

the only way you can buy it is online there is few websites that caries it

Let me know if you need anything else on it ,if you are good , Please Kindly rate me.

Hope I was helpful to you &
