hello kawiforum! i'm a noob, who has been lurking on this site for quite a while. got a problem and would appreciate some help. i've done searches on my problem, but i haven't found what i am looking for.

my 02 zx-6r has about 7000 miles on it. i've been using motul since i got it, but my last oil change this week i started using mobil 1 15w-50? (the red cap) to see if it made a difference.

well, it has. when i try to start the bike, it's in neutral and i press the starter. the dang thing just rattles and rattles and doesn't catch. it makes this god-awful grinding noise and doesn't want to start at all. once it does, by some miracle, it's fine.

could it be a loose clutch or in need of replacement? is it my oil?

HELP!!!

thanks.
