I have a 2000 R6 and just wondering what to put in it, my mechanic always puts harley oil in his but he also wanted to know if conventional car oil would go OK in bikes as long as it has the same viscosity and such. Now I know what you guys are going to say, synthetic this, synthetic that, if it was a new bike I would do sntethic but for now I want to see if conventional is fine.

I forgot what it was, but the regular auto oil is fine as long as it does not have some certain additive... I forgot what it was. I just remember seeing something about it somewhere. Hopefully someone else here will know the answer

as long as the oil does not have an EC rating it can be used in motorcycles with a wet clutch like the r6. i use castrol gtx 10w40 conventional oil. its good but i change the oil once regularly.
