oil change on a honda foreman 500

i know that honda says to use 10w-40. my question is can i use any 10w-40 or should i just stick with using the honda oil. i work days alot and its hard to get to a dealer to get the oil because i work till after the dealership closes

    you can use 4 stroke motorcycle oil, thats what they recommend and its not to different to honda oil. also most ppl just use regular car oil. it should not hurt

    I was told not to use automotive oil in a fourwheeler.....Due to it being a wet clutch.....At least use the wal-mart MOTORCYCLE oil....
