What type of oil for my 06

Ok so i was at the store earlier and i usually just get the oil changed at a shop and for some reason cant remember for the life of me what type of oil was in there to begin with. the bike has been sitting for quite a long time now and when i stopped riding to fix all the damages on it from a recent crash it was just about due for an oil change? So what im tyring to figure out here is what type of oil should i use i.e. full synthetic, blended, or just normal oil?

Use olive oil, that way your bike dosent absorb any trans fats from say lard.

Any good motorcycle 40w oil will work fine. There are a few 30w oils that I'm sure would be fine but I prefer and use 40w stuff exclusively. The best one? That's a can of worms but ones known to be good are:

Amsoil MCV
Rotella
Mobil 1 4T
Motul
Redline
Silkolene
Repsol
Castrol
Manufacturer's crap
bazillion others

Syn vs conventional is personal preference. I like synthetic. I've used Amsoil, Rotella, Mobil 1, and Honda's swill in my CBR. My favorite is Amsoil with Rotella and Mobil 1 duking it out for 2nd.

A side note on Rotella: You can use the T6 formula (blue jug at wallymart) for a synthetic. If you're planning on conventional oil, one of the best ones on the shelf is Rotella 15w-40 in the white jug. Yeah, the crap for diesel semi trucks and tractors.

Honda. 2007 CBR600RR. Ohlins TTX36 and FGK Cartridges, Throttlemeister, TBR V.A.L.E., Woodcraft cases, Vortex sliders, spools, Michy PP2CT tires, all mechanicals stock. Spongebob Keychain.

Harley. 2010 FLHTK. SE Ventilator intake w/K&N air filter, FuelMoto Jackpot 2-1-2 header, Supertrapp SE mufflers, Wood TW-555 Cams, tuned with PC-V. 85hp/104tq

I tried the Rotella on my last change.. no complaints, and was available at a bunch of local places like walmart and mom & pop auto stores around where I live. Didn't feel like ordering online for like Amsoil and stuff.

anecdotal thumbs up - was debating having an oil analysis done but then I got lazy haha
