The search button works great, but I like to use the OEM Suzuki Oil. It seems to work great for me.

Motul 5100.

Its a Semi Synthetic blend. I run the 10w50 which is hard to find.

Oh bike is a 2007 Suzuki GSXR 600.

Other than that I'd run regular suzuki oil, 10w40.

I used to run a K&N Oil Filter on my 2002 600, but I never did on my 07 because I heard of oil pressure light going on after an oil change unless you remember to fill the filter with oil before you screw it on, so I've been running OEM Suzuki filters since then.

I'm also looking into what oil to use, I know the previous owner use to run Agip, however I'm thinking more of Motul. as long as you run a SAE 10 W-40, API SF/SG or SH/SJ with JASO MA as stated in the owners manual (for a GSXR600 K6) but should be the same through the ranks. Any of the top brands will do. I myself will be strongly considering Motul, however Castrol or any other well known racing brand will do. when in doubt consult your agent. I personally will buy a oil filter from the agents and change it every time I change oil.

Also remember a good oil will change dark sooner than a bad oil. it just means it washes your engine better and quicker.

Currently running on Motul 3000 non-synthetic 10w40 and an OEM suzuki filter/ HIflo, this is for a Suzuki GSXR600 K9.

I have tons of Valvoline 10w40 oil from Auto Zone laying around when I bought on sale for my previous 250r commuter. I was thinking of trying it out on the GSXR the next oil change, it does have all the API SF/SG or SH/SJ with JASO MA ratings as you would find on Motul and other highly recommended brands

Was this study done by AMSOIL? LOL

I have been using mobil 1 10w40 4T racing since 2000 in whatever bike I had. I can still get it for under 10 bucks a quart. The only place that sells the amsoil is 20 mins away and its over 13 bucks a quart and they aren't open late. Hard to justify when I can get the mobil 1, 5 mins from my house and they are open late. I tried the amsoil once, it was fine.

My 01 750 had 33/k+ miles when I sold her, still ran strong....
My 05 750 had 22/k+ miles when I sold her, zero issues........
Current bike is 07 750 only 10/k miles, all my 7 fiddys have hit the track several times. Mobil 1 has been used in all of them.

I would have no problem switching to amsoil if it was cheaper and more convient for me to get. Both are awesome and would be the only 2 I would use in my bike. But honestly, I don't think you could go wrong with any full syn bike oil. Just change it regularly. Even tho I read a study that said 3/k miles is too soon too change syn oil in a bike. Even though it is black it still has plenty of life left. This study was done on track bikes too. It said we are wasting money changing the oil so soon. I have extended my oil changes to 5/k. I do a mix of track days and mountain twisty riding.

I just changed my oil went with Motul full synthetic 5-40 I believe. thats what the dude recommended. said he uses it in his race bike. finished it off with a K&N filter. about $90 oil change. damn that was expensive (compared to a car)

Akra shorty carbon fiber,Greggs blackoffs,8K HID,K&N,Woodcraft sliders thats it for now. Just got my 09 2 weeks ago.

5W 40? I don't have my manual handy but I'm fairly sure that's outside of the range of acceptable grades. One might use it on a race bike for a power gain, where the engine isn't expected to last more than one season.

Thats what he recommended?!? Ill check to make sure thats what the weight is, i dont recall 100% but I think thats what it was. he is a well known respected bike mechanic here in SA so I just took his word for it.

You will probably be okay with it being it's a good quality synthetic but I would revert to 10W 40 after the next oil change. That is the recommended grade for all riding conditions.

I was like fawkkk that crap cost me 60$ for the gallon and Im gonna have to buy some more asap. haha. I feel better now with you saying I should be okay. Ill go back to 10w40 next time around.

I use Royal Purple on my bike since I had great results with it on my car, however Amsoil seems to get better wear ratings.

Amsoil 10w40 I buy it by the case for $150 oem filther. I've got a K7 1000 and as said the shifts are smoother! It's expensive but I think it's worth the extra coin.
