On the Amsoil website it claims that if you use thier filter that it will extend the life of the oil to 10-15k. Does anyone use that filter and if so what do you think about it? I do not race my bike or really ride like a bat out of hell.

First off Amsoil does not make their own filters. I would guess they are made by the same folks who make the STP filters (Champion Industries) that are available at Autozone. They list the same filter for both all ZX-6R's from '95-'02 where Kawasaki lists three different filters.

With that in mind, any manufacturer's claims that his filter can increase oil change interval is pure bull shit because the main factor in oil change interval is loss of viscosity and the filter has nothing to do with it.
