There is different opinions as what is best. Any oil that meets specifications and changed regularly will do nicely. I have not heard of an engine failure in a 650 since something else breaks first. Just make sure it is JASO-MA. Rotella meets the specifications in either conventional or synthetic. Amzoil and Mobil 1 have oils that meet the specifications (make sure it is the right one).Hey I'm little confused on what is the best oil to use for Burgman 650 for warm humid climate, as in Florida

I think you mean "JASMO" not "JASON", am I right?Is delo 400 JASON-MA ?
Yeah, that's right. A few of us just use the "JASMO" to mean that it is safe for wet clutches as well. Just a habit of that I need to break I guess.Actually it JASO-MA
JASO = Japanese Automotive Standards Organization
MA rating = appropriate for wet clutch operations in Japanese bike.
Run the same thing in my 650 and 2013 F-350. Went cheap on one oil change on the Ford & noticed a drop in mpg. Not going to do that again.Well I guess I could add my $.02 to the mass confusion of what oil to use! I use
Shell Rotella Synthetic 5w40 in almost every internal combustion engine I own. The 5w is the cold weight, which in theory is easier flowing than 10w so it would put less drag on your starter. Also a little bit easier to pull start. I use it in my Burger650, crankcase and CVT, snowblower, Husqvarna mower with Kohler, Honda mower, power washer, and I used to run it in the big diesel engines in my Class VIII trucks. In big diesel (Cummins) engine I went from a monthly fuel average of 6.25mpg to 6.75mpg.. That is an 8% increase. That would be like 45mpg to 48.6mpg. As you can see I like Shell Rotella Syn..
Note: No Burgmans, or other internal combustion engines have been harmed in these tests!
