Re: oil types

Wal-Mart Super-Tech and Fram filters.

(I'm kidding)

10W-40 API SG or equivalent. I like K&N filters because of the handy nut on the end.

You'll find thousands of opinions with that question...

Re: oil types

I run Amsoil 10w 40 with an Amsoil filter, around 3000 or so. Lots of guys run Rotella 15w40, lots of my friends do and so have I in other bikes, with no issues at all, its all preference. I just plan on keeping my Gixxer for a long, long time, I figure why not the best, just my opinion though.
