2013 GSXR 600 - synthetic oil question

Hey guys, I just bought a 2013 600 & was informed from the dealership that I can not use synthetic in it till it reaches 6,000 miles.. I've never heard this before so anyone know if this is true or not?

You can only use extra virgin olive oil for the first 3.74 miles, otherwise your bike is broken.

I'll wager that is his personal opinion rather than anything that came down from Suzuki.

Re: 2013 GSXR 600 - synthetic oil question

According to my Suzuki dealership they come from the factory with "synthetic" oil.

Brought mine in for the 600 mile service and had them change the oil to who knows what.

Next year I will be putting in synthetic myself.

Here ya go... http://bit.ly/18pRpen

Better watch them and make sure they don't sneak synthetic Headlight or Blinker fluid in during the next service.

My dealer told me it was 16,000 miles? I said to him, what if I crash my bike before then and don't get a chance to try synthetic?
