I was told by the dealer mechanics that it is best during the break period to use the suzuki motor old then after the 2nd or 3rd oil change switch to syn. but make sure you get all of the old motor oil out because they won't
mix .......Good Luck!!!!!!

Congrats! I would wait until you have 1500 miles on your bike before going to the syn of your choice. Use dino oil until she is broken in. Do your first oil change before you get 100 miles on her.

find a good syn & stick with it, when I was working at KWS we built tons of motors & use SYN oil right from the start, you don't have to use conventional oil during the break in, 'cause the cylinder bores are nickacel plated. though I would stay away from castrol, for some reason the clutch doesn't like it, I use Mobil 1 5w30 full syn. & I've ran it from day one & now have almost 15k on it.
