Default First oil change. 2007 Honda CBR 600rr that i recently bought from a friend. 10w-30 or...

...10w-40? I live in TX? According to forums 10w-30 is recommended however 10w-40 is more available and recommended for hotter climates.

Appreciate any suggestions.

5-40 fully synthetic it ain't the 50s any more 10-30 is fine for a big V8 or even a 50s harley if you change the oil every 2-3000miles, for a modern alloy high revving engine in a hot climate 5-40 will cover everything and you can go 10000 miles between changes, no modern car or bike with more than 45000 miles or 5 years old should be using 30 or 20 weight oils except in alaska
