Mixed reviews

My suggestion would be to run the bike through the break in proccess with the regular oil and then go to Synthetic. I used Castrol R4 oil in my F4i and I got good performance from it. I highly approve of it, but it is a lil more pricey than the rest. :?

Just like they said .... standard oil for breakin,
then synth.

My procedure (18 years of riding) has always been 150 or so miles on "factory stuff",
drain it, put in any MC dino oil till 5-600, then Mobil 1 MC Oil.

I've always used Mobil 1 MC Oil from Autozone,
which is exactly the same oil as the Triumph Badged Mobil 1.

Sold my last Sp3 with 60K on Her, running perfect, satisfied buyer even called me back a year later ...
