Question where to find oil weight for bike

I can't locate my manual right now and want to change the oil.
2008 GSX 650F

I can't seem to find it on any website.

Is there a site that lists the recommended oil for each motorcycle?

SAE 10W-40 According to the 2009 model service manuel. I assume it's the same for the 2008.

Pretty much all bikes use the same depending on where they were made. Japanese use 10W40. European use 10W50 and sometimes 10W60.
