Have a look here for the meanings:

Motor Oil Guide

Any good, known-brand motorcycle oil of the correct viscosity will work just fine. A lot of automotive oils will work good too, but make sure they do not contain friction modifiers, which will not work well with your wet clutch. Safest thing to do is use motorcycle oil which you know will not have friction modifiers in it.
