engine oil

Can you use an oil from the auto parts store that will work, like valvoline 5w-40 for the motor?

One still has a trans. shearing the heck out of the oil, so a "Jaso MA certified" oil will still be better than average.
The Shell Rotella T6 full synthetic has all the additives in for motorcycle use, and sold at Wal-Mart for $19 a gal., so right at $5 a quart is very good price compared to all other synthetics that will hold up to transmission shearing abuse, I used to be an Amsoil guy for many years, but with my dealer pricing up over $10 a quart to my door, I had to finally go to something else, after much research, the Rotella t6 keeps coming out on top for a decent priced GOOD oil for powersports products, it comes in 5w40, I been running it in my big-bore stroker alky drag quads, so far so good...
