Engine and trans are one unit,10/40 motorcycle oil.
Front differential would use 80/90 gear oil.

If it dont work we will fix it while we have our dirty clothes on.Best experience is hands on experience.
IF IT AINT BROKE,DONT FIX IT.

Is there something in the motorcyle oil that is important or 10w40 Yamalube (example) would be ok ?

As long as it has a wetclutch additive it will be fine,yamalube will work,just a yamaha brand of oil.

Yamalube would be o.k. Used it once in my 300 since it was the only motorcycle oil available in a sae 5W30. And if your wondering the reason i said 5W30 is because i was operating my bike in the winter where temperatures sometimes reach a cool bone chilling -30. Beyond that sae 10W40 is the recommended oil when temperatures are above the 10 degree mark. The differential oil should be a sae 90 Hypoid gear oil as stated by Zukifreak unless your ambient temperature drops below -0 where as then it is recommended to use a sae 80 Hypoid gear oil.

I have a problem now, I hear a creaking or friction sound when I'm riding on my Suzuki ! On idle, no sound, the problem still there when I'm riding. I don't know from where the sound is from, somebody already have this problem ??
