My bike calls for 10w40 oil and the guy I bought it from thinks he used Amsoil. I read that ATF works best in these bikes and was wondering:

Has anyone had any experience with ATF?

Can I switch right now even after conventional oil has been used?

Is Amsoil blue? Blue is what's in the bike now.

Thanks all.
Any how your bike called for 5w30 not 10/40. Most ran ATF dex 3, some preferred type f. Anything will actually work. You will notice the difference in the clutch action. Change often and the worst(It`s a spanish piece of crap, they all break everything!) would be a new clutch pack. Good luck and have fun.
