Here is a comparison of AMSOIL 10w30 motorcycle oil and Redline 10w30 motorcycle oil: https://www.amsoil.com/storefront/mct.aspx?zo=1181889 . I believe your bike specs a 10W40 JASO MA oil. My main concern with the Red Line motorcycle oils is that it only lists JASO MB, which is a lower wet clutch friction standard than the JASO MA you manual likely lists. This could cause clutch slippage. To learn more about JASO and other motorcycle oil testing: https://www.amsoil.com/lit/g2156.pdf .
