What oil do you use?

The oil type thread got me thinking about which oil(s) you guys use for your Ninja 250. I'm sure there will be plenty of opinions on this, so I'm interested to hear your choices before I say what I use. If we get enough responses I can make a poll out of this thread.

I'm not really brand specific, but I use synthetic oil in my cars, so that's what I'm going to use on my ninja 250 when it gets past the 1000-mile mark. I hear Amsoil makes good stuff, but I've always used Mobil1 in the past.

Both Mobil1 and Amsoil are good brands IMO. As long as the oil was designed for motorcycles then the differences aren't that big.

Amsoil or mobil, just use the motorcycle formulation and wet clutch should be fine.
