    Honda recommends semi synthetic 10w 30 but u can use full synthetic. You can also use 10w 40
    I changed mine for semi synthetic 10w 40 motul oil.

    Source?

    The US manual calls for non-syn Pro Honda GN4 10-30 or 10-40 if in a hot environment. HP4 is the semi-syn and is not mentioned in the manual. Obviously, it would be perfectly fine to run if not better, but it isn't the oil recommended in the manual. It's possible the UK manual is different, though.

    To the OP, so long as you use the correct weight and stay away from automotive oils, you will be fine with non-syn, semi-syn, or full-syn.

    Today I asked authorized service in Poland: they told me, that they don't know, what is is brand new engine but oil, which we can find on 96th page of owners manual ("SAE 10W30") is full synthetic oil. 10W40 is also good (in Poland they suggest Motul 7100 4T 10w40 MA2).

    It MUST BE bike oil.-------------10/30 or 10/40. It can be semi-synth or full-synth.--------Do not use car oil.

    Of course, I know that - above mentioned oil is dedicated only for motorcycles.

    Honda manual and Haynes manual. Thus has been long debated on this and n any other forums. P'S semi can be better than fully synthetic as it has best (and worst) of both oil types
