I have always done all my own maintenance on my bikes for years and years.
I got my 06, v-star 650 Custom and read the manual thouroughly and still have questions about what oil to run.
I went to my mechanic, (Yamaha factory trained) for advise.
He never batted an eye when he told me Castrol Power RS V–Twin synthetic.
He told me to check it out for myself at this website http://www.castrol.com/castrol/sectiongenericarticle.do?categoryId=9021705&contentId=7040548
in the shaft drive rearend.
Designed for use with WET CLUTCH V twins.
Runs 5000 miles between changes. Also he recommends Yamaha Oil Filters.
My 2cents worth
