Oil Change HELP

Just bought a 2013 GSXR 1000. The bike has about 3100 miles on it and I want to service it. I don't know when the last oil change was and what type of oil was used. With that being said, what brand oil should I Use? AND should I go full synthetic?

Peanut oil. Full organic

For the most part oil is oil. As long as it's motorcycle specific. You are fine. If it makes you feel good to pay more for oil go for it. Any major name brand will do.
Search the site.;Dunno
You will get the answers you seek.

Re: Oil Change HELP

Don't know about everyone else but I like colorful oil. I hear the food coloring adds a protective coating to the engine walls.

I heard it said that Motul 300V smells like banana.
