I have a bit of a dilemma. I'm going to change my oil for the first time and the manual says, use SAE 10W30 or 10W40 API SE, SF,SG or higher, it also says DON'T use CD or higher. Now this is a bit tricky, about all good oils here in sweden is labelled A3/B3 SL/CF. I see this as on one point the oil I'm going to purchase is better than stated but on the other hand it's not recommended to use (CF). What's your opinion ?

Don't use CF. There is a reason the manual says not to use it. If you do use it and have a problem, Suzuki will refuse to warranty the repair.

Some automotive oils contain friction modifiers that could harm the clutch (and yes, the 650 has a clutch). I don't know if that is the case with CF, or if it is something else. If you can buy a Suzuki Burgman in Sweden, I'm pretty sure you can buy Suzuki oil. Buy it, use it, don't take chances with your oil to save a little money.
