2001 zx6r

Hello everyone, just bought my first road bike. Unsure of what brand and type of oil I should run in the bike, it’s got just over 12k miles. TIA

Hi and welcome

Consult the manual for oil details, other than that I am sure that a 10w - 40 semi synthetic or fully synthetic oil is the standard choice.

Also, oil companies usually have an oil configurator application on their websites and it could be handy.

Are you going to track your bike?

I am a Bel-Ray fan and I use their 10w - 40 Synthetic Ester Blend.

Welcome. That's a great bike, I have one now, and had another one before that. The correct oil weight is 10W-40. I go with Mobil 1 but numerous other brands are good too. Good luck and post pics!
