engine oil

What do you guys recommend that I use for engine oil and filter in my 98, and also does the screen need to be cleaned at the time of service, if so where is that located roughly? (sorry but my owners/repair manual hasnt arrived yet)

any good brand of oil will work fine as long as it meets grade requirements, use what you like and/or is economical. I myself like mobil 1. For the klr I use fram filters. Again, like oil, i believe it is more important to change regularly than brand. Wait for your manual before tackling the oil screen: you gotta open the right-side engine case/water pump, drain coolant, gaskets, etc.
