What Oil Do You Use In Your FZ6?
 
My first(and last) bike just loved the cheapest crappiest generic 10w40 I could pour into it, but something tells me the FZ6 is a bit more picky about what she likes to use. What oil do you use?

I have been using Rotella T Synthetic and a PureOne PL14610 oil filter with excellent results. I previously used Repsol, but I can no longer purchase it locally.

Engine Oil:
 
Just today I purchased the oil for my 1000-1200 mile oil change. I got Mobil 1 10W-40 Fully Synthetic. I used Yamalube 10W-40 for my first oil change at 588 miles. The Yamaha filters appear to be absolutely "top shelf" but at $16.00 a pop I bought the SuperTech Walmart filter! I spent an entire day researching filters and this appears to be one of the best out there for nearly the cheapest price. (It's slightly longer than the Yamaha filters too)

Rotella T6 Synthetic (which actually isn't a true full synthetic, but if you're not racing I don't think this will matter, few "synthetic" oils out there are truly synthetic and not blends) is what I use as well.

The Purolator PL14610 gets top reviews/rankings and is like $6USD... but I need to cross the border to get them, so a bit of a pain. Any Canadian alternatives people know about?

PS - I spray paint my Purolator to match the bike, lol, such an ugly mustard colour!

+1 on Rotella. I have a FZ-6R (US variant of the FZ6) and after reading this thread have used nothing but Shell Rotella T5. Project Farm did a comparison video recently (youtube.com/watch?v=hTyrc1zjKEA&t=1s) for Mobil 1 and Rotella - He might not use high grade "scientific" means of analysis however, it made me glad I read this thread years ago.
