Best oil...you are going to get many answers on that. there are many good oils, Amsoil,klotz,mobil,maxima,rotella and the list goes on.Most will have no idea what the zinc/phos content is in their oil as they do not do any testing. I do not know right off hand what the zinc content of rotella is as I have never tested it..anything above 1100 or so is sufficient. I use the klotz MX4, which has around 1400 zinc content.

Only use oils deigned for wet clutches or you will screw up your clutch.

Mobil 1 4T is all I use now. I know a guy who did some heavy duty clinical testing on many brands of oils and came up with Mobil 1 4T as the top dog.

I have always run yamalube semisynthetic 15w 40 and it seems to run pretty well. It is pretty expensive but since I have never had a problem with it I stick with it.
