It's got a Yamaha motor, so running Yamalube wouldn't be a bad idea. But in reality, any good quality 4-stroke oil would be fine. Yamaha motors rev to the moon, so going synthetic wouldn't be a bad idea.

5w30 is a good spread, unless you're in an extreme temperature environment.

Valvoline full synthetic. $3.99 a quart at WalMart last I bought a case.
Can Am Full Synthetic was $12.99 to $14.99 a quart at the dealers which is ridiculous. Yama lubes about the same price
The ratings Starburst on the side of the container is what matters. All the same.

Speaking of Yamaha lubes:
I still use expensive Yamahalube 2 stroke oil in our families 2 stroke boats because it burns super clean - no plug fouling, burns nicely + no smoke - no odor.
Pulling girls on wakeboards they appreciate it. No stink or eye burn. Outstanding oil.
Used to be 2 Yamalubes: One label for oil injection 2 strokes and a different label Yamalube 2 stroke oil for pre-mix. Now just one Yamalube 2 stroke oil label available.
Works great in the weedeater. No carbon build up.
