Make sure it specifically says it can be used with a wet clutch. Other than that, it should be fine.

So if it says it has wet clutch anti slipping technology then it should be ok...and the Manuel says 10w30 it wouldn't matter 10w40 would it?

That should be okay. My local dealer doesn't even carry 10W-30. They use 10W-40 in all oil changes and new bikes.

You don't want anything that says "friction reducing" - other than that you are OK.
