Regardless of what anybody tells you, get used to the bike before enabling PRM.

Read the oil threads and pick a brand you like. Everyone has their favorite, and their favorite is the best.

Hell, pick a different brand with each change and decide what you like the best.

Welcome my friend...
Dont pay attention to some of these Turkeys.
What you need to do since your new to the R1 is pretty much what you do to your car. Change the oil on time and keep up with the maintenance. After that just enjoy ur bike!

This is what i use:
Mobil 1 10W40 motor oil (pic below)
Mobil 1 M1-110 oil filter

Chain:
very time it looks dirty/dry i do this:
