Re: Evidence based recommendations for consumable full service items for 750 K7
I personally use the OEM air filter and OEM oil filter, because they've worked fine for me. And K&N's filters are trash.
Oil, I use Rotella and have used it for tens of thousands of miles in my bikes. Oil debates are absurd, so go with whatever you want to spend your money on.
Spark plugs: use the OEM NGK model. There is no reason to change heat ranges on a stock/near-stock bike, and NGK is a great company.
Use whatever decent coolant goes with your bike.
I just use the recommended DOT 4 fluid.
