Is 10w40 the oil to use or should I run the 20w50?

Nevwr an issue.

What year?

10W-40 will work, if you want to kick it up a notch, go one quart 10W-40 one 20W-50. I THINK it takes 2 quarts, right?

Its a 2014. 1st oil change was at 2hr, replaced with Yamaha 10w40 dino and have 5hr on this oil. Want to switch to a synthetic after break in. yes it takes 2 quarts.

It sounds like you guys think I should run a 50 grade oil.

I wouldn't go straight 20W-50. Heck Amsoil recommends 0W-40. Start with 10W-40, if a UOA shows shearing or if it's super hot then just mix 50/50.

The 10W-40 is fine. You don't need the 0W-40.
