More oil is more protection I guess.

more oil is more resistance to the moving parts! I run my engine on 1/5th the recommended amount for maximum power.

Errr... kinda true. There is a maximum HP point corresponding to an oil fill on all production engines. This is typically the "nominal fill" point, although on older car engines it was about a quart low.

Too much oil and you loose HP through windage. Too little oil, and it will aerate in the pan, since it has less settling time. More aeration, leads to more volume, and windage. So you can loose more HP running less oil.

Autozone has been having this type of deal for a long time (Filter + Oil for <$16). I think last week they had Bosch filters. I always get this for cars.

I don't think its a good idea to use oil designed for cars in motorcycles. Usually these oils have friction modifiers which don't play nicely with clutches.

I use Mobile1 filters for my CBR. You have to just have to find the correct part number for the manufacture you are using. I think the Mobile1 filter costs about the same as a Honda filter though.

Don't forget about adding about a shot glass of Dish Soap to improve the lubricity. That will make things slip MUCH better, especially on a wet clutch!
