Well - let's start with forum etiquette - posting in all caps is considered shouting.

Next, what oil?

We can start with - where are you, and what's the ambient temperature like?

That's going to be the first factor in choosing an oil - cold weather dictates a lighter oil, hotter weather, a heavier oil - I'm in the tropics, it rarely gets colder than mid 70's, but is often into the 90's - I use Suzuki's recommendation, a 10w40

10w40 is perfect a year round no matter were you at in the world. if it burns oil... blue smoke coming out the tail pipe then go up to 20w50 any brand is fine too but if you wanna waste your money in expensive fancy oils go ahead too.
