First check if it's the right grade.

Second, all SBK oils these days are fully synthetic. You may not really need it, and if your bike isn't run in yet, you really shouldn't.

Third, this is not xbhp, we don't plug Castrol. Shop around, there's Motul (which Bangalore swears by), Elf (do they do bikes specifically?) and I'm sure Idemitsu does a number for Honda as well.
