    10w40 does mine fine, just change it often and you won't have any problems, get a decent brand of oil tho.
    Fitted options: Folding mirrors, cruise control, dual tone horn, remap.
    Next: Bluetooth

    I always use 10w40 Castrol GTX Magnatec and it does the job well. I found it takes longer to burn than Vxl's.
