autozone has the mobil1 synthetic for your bike - cheaper by $2 per quart than the Kawi dealer & the hours are much better.

It is very good oil for bikes. I use it in my ZX14. Pretty much any diesel engine oil works great in bikes.

I go with what a lot of the guys on the cbr forums use. It's the mobil 1 synthetic for cars with the gold cap. Pretty sure I use 20 50.

Might not be best for yours, but both mine seem to like it.

no actually you like the expensive stuff your bike does not even know the diffrence. racers that race your same bike put it through way more abuse in one lap than you ever will in all your days of posing at starbucks and a large part of them are using cheap rotella t oil from wallyworld or even cheaper.

I have a dry clutch so I use an auto grade sythetic oil. I just changed it yesterday.

But then again, I have always used regular auto grade oil, wet or dry.
