i ONLY run amsoil. full synthetic. not the cheapest, but it's the best. oil and filter, every 1500 miles or mid-season.

the particulate size tolerance on the amsoil filter is FAR superior to any other brand on the market. smaller particals get trapped and therefore, increase oil life as well as engine life.

your bike will thank you - so will your wet clutch. buttery smooth.

I used K&N filters with a 10-40 Motul 300 (Mineral one) on both the R6 and CBR. I started using this set up after Sunny and Patrick suggested it.

Before that, I used OEM filters and Castrol semi synthetic oil, the clutch slipped on the R6 with that set up.

Oh, and I changed the oil every other TD or race weekend and the filter every other oil change.

Maxima Maxum 10w40 and a Hi Flo filter.

Oil is changed every 3 visits to the track and oil filter every other oil change. Zero slips and 20k mi on the stock clutch race bike.

As long as you change the oil frequently, I don't see a problem in any oil you use.

Really any oil & filter in the manufacturers rec. weight will be fine if changed regularly.Personally I use the rottella syn.One note of caution on the R6-it has extremely low oil pressure at idle,so do not let it idle for extended periods-issue well discussed on WERA board.Rec. is to keep it above 1500 rpm

This is VERY good to know as I like to let it idle to warm up for a bit.

A bit is fine. I let mine idle till the temp registers - 104 - and then I'm off.

my opinion goes to motul or repsol (dino oil) for stock trackbikes. i'd switch over to full synthetic if you were running race fuel or have a beefed up motor.

k&n or hiflo filter.
