your choice of oil
much has been written, much has been argued
In my area we use 10W-40 as the temps are usually high
synthetic, semi-synthetic, or dino oil-your choice
change regularly, you'll never have an issue

2
worth noting, there is no standard for "semi-synthetic"
it can be 20% synthetic or 50% depending on what the manufacturer does with his product
full synthetic is 100% synthetic, not a mixture

the problem is not with ebay, it is with the particular seller on ebay.
check feedback for the seller before you purchase. often there will be mention of problems from previous buyers.
I've bought many things off ebay over the past 15 years. Problems only with vintage watches from sellers in India.
Check out the seller before you purchase

Modifications, Accessories, and Appearance / Re: Which Radiator hose ?
« on: February 08, 2020, 06:53:01 AM »
hose is 22 mm
this is the gauge I use,
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Trail-Tech-Water-Temp-Meter-22MM-Hose-Black-742-EH2-/233371218435
there is another at about half the price, can't speak to the quality. Have had two  Trail-Tech and never an issue
could not get easy access to the top hose for the sensor install so I used the bottom

What is "parked in the sun"? I do not understand why you would do that and just leave the bike running.
if merely idling at a stop you will not overheat.
If you are "parked in the sun" for some other reason, it might.
After an hour or so.

Please let us know what prompted the question

if you do not have heated grips there's a method I have used for many years
Tennis racquet wraps-not for heated grips
they come thin and thick (cushioned) which is what I use.
Self adhesive and wrap from the end toward the center of the handlebar. Trim the length when you get them on
Adds thickness and help me with arthritis in my thumbs
Since you are in the US you can get them at Wallyworld, about 6 bucks for two
