You can use the same oil filter that fits on the 2000-2002 model ZX-6R's for you 2003 model. The only diffrence is the length over all, granted it carries a few CC's more in capacity, adding four quarts should be fine since I doubt you'll be removing the heat exchanger and getting ride of that small amount of oil either. Hope this helps!

Back orders to dealers are being filled across North America last week, you might wanna check again with your dealer to see if they got some. Mine got several cases of them, I bought two.

Check on past topics concerning oil filters for the 03. Honda makes an exact match for the bike, same depth and everything. I took mine off and matched it exactly to it. I wrote a past topic with the part number in it. Good luck.

If you cannot find the 2003 filter (part number 16097-0002), you can safely use the 2000 to 2002 filter (part number 16097-1070).

Mobil 1 10W-40 has the Energy Conserving rating and so contains friction modifiers that can cause clutch slippage. If you like Mobil 1, choose 15W-50, their only viscosity without the Energy Conserving rating.

Mdsuave13, I got mine (Fram part # ph6017a) yesterday at Advanced Auto Parts for about $7 w/ tax. It happened to be the last in stock; give them/other shops a call before wasting gas driving around like I did.

dutch_tiger,

Where did you find the Fram part #? Are you sure it's the right filter? I'd much rather pay $7 than ~$20 (which is what the bike dealerships have been quoting me...even though they say they still don't have the filters...[B)])

I use the honda MCJ filter that goes on the 954 and 600RR. It's the exact same filter as the Kawasaki (made by the same company), and a little cheaper. If you ride your bike hard, I wouldn't suggest cheaping out on an oil filter, it could cost you a lot of money down the road.

Inca_jones, I found the part # (ph6017a) from the www.zx6r.com site under the section on Changing the Oil. The filter box has a listing of Kawasaki model numbers it can be used for/with.

And Kutscher, I agree that it is always a safe bet to go with what the manufacturer recommends. However I also feel confident in Fram products; just happens to be a lot cheaper.
