Suggest an oil

Changing my oil and filter on my own tomorrow, any suggestions on what brand and weight of oil to use. The bike is a 04 R6 if it matters.

Re: Suggest an oil

We've always had good results with Motul, ( it's all we've used in our racebikes for years ) but pretty much most of the motorcycle specific oils out there are pretty good. I'm not overly fond of some Fram filters, I like either the factory stuff, K&N or Hi Flo.

Re: Suggest an oil

I use Motul and whatever filter I get at Motorcycles Unlimited. I like it, and it is not brutally expensive like some oils right:
