For Canadians, I would suggest the Motomaster full synthetic 5W40 from Canadian Tire. It doesn't have friction modifiers (not energy/resources conserving) and you can get 5 ltr jug on sale for as little as $26. It is actually rebranded Quaker State oil. I have it in my AT for past 1200 kms and works great...
But the difference is in most motorcycles the engine and gearbox oil are one and the same, unlike most cars and trucks which are seperate and use two completely different types of oils. So putting this motomaster stuff in your bike will not be a great idea. There will be no high presure additives in this oil designed for the extreme pressure of a gearbox, your gearbox will be doomed eventually, possibly sooner rather than later. Only use oil designed for motorbikes.
250X7 (first bike 17 years old, T-Boned it in 3 weeks), CB250K4 (needed wheels), CB350K4 (last wheels needed replacing, ran engine without oil after rebuild, DOH!), T500 (didnt handle, didn't care, 2-stroke smoke - EPIC!), 883 Sportster (oh dear, mistake), 1340 Lowrider Covertible (stolen before a year old), Daytona 1200 (heavy, 147BHP mad lump), DR350 (reliable small thumper), CRF1000 (love it)
