I know when I had the 600mi service done they put 10w-40 in it my main concern is with engine heat as my commute does have some traffic involved with it on a daily basis so id rather not be stuck on something where the engine heat is going to be cranked up so to speak because the oil cant help to pull some of the heat out.
I pretty much ride is 40-100f degree weather but I also want an oil that will be able to help pull some heat out with it as stated above. I think im going to try the liqui moly as im pretty sure i can get that around here easy enough.
If that's the case, then I would run a 15w-50 grade oil in your application.
Maybe even a 10w-50 grade.
There are heaps to choose from which fit your criteria.
Refer to your owners manual regarding the appropriate grade.
I would also recommend you have a look at the Amsoil Motorcycle Oil White Paper to gain some insight into what your dealing with in regard to making an informed decision.
If your bike is liquid cooled, higher heat from slow traffic commutes shouldn't be a problem.
If your bike is air cooled then that changes the dynamic a bit.
Keep in mind that oil only gets thinner with higher heat.
And as Bonaventure says, and oil that starts out as a 40 grade may well end up a 30 grade by the time your bike is due for a scheduled oil change due to a number of legitimate reasons.
Likewise a 50 grade may end up as the equivalent of a 45 grade or even a 40 grade.
You won't know this for certain unless you do a Used Oil Analysis.
Don't get too excited about an oils capacity to physically pull some heat out unless the bike is air cooled.
A true synthetic oil will handle heat better anyway.
