Brake Fluid

My '11 ZX6R calls for DOT 4 Brake Fluid. Went to my local Autozone and found a plethora of DOT 3, some DOT 5 but only Super DOT 4.....is there a problem running Super DOT 4 vs DOT 4

I use Motul RBF600 in all my sport bikes. High boiling point to eliminate brake fade.

probably just a dot 4 with a slightly higher boiling point. All dot 3, 4, and 5.1 can be used in the same setups and are compatible with each other, but dot 5 are silicon-based and require their own system
