First bike 954rr need help with parts

So I just bought my first bike a 02 954rr I wanted a 600 but the price was to good to pass up. But I want to change my brakes/ oil and oil filter and I would like to know what oil/ good brake pads to use thanks for any help.

Re: First bike 954rr need help with parts

Im sure the manual says which oil to use but make sure its synthetic, and any break pads from your local parts dealer are probably fine...always work for me.

No. Doesnt need to be synthetic. Any 4-stroke motorcycle oil will work.

For brake pads, you can get EBC HH pads from the dealer or on the net.

Re: First bike 954rr need help with parts

what if the bike has used synthetic previously? Is it still wise to switch to normal 4 stroke oil?

Re: First bike 954rr need help with parts

If so which 4 stroke oil do you recommend? Will it need more frequent changes then? Less than 3k for example...?

As long as you drain the oil and change the filter, it'll be alright.

I generally use Castrol 4T 10W-40 (http://www.castrol.com/castrol/secti...tentId=7040925) and it works great. I change the oil/filter every 3k miles.

Re: First bike 954rr need help with parts

I always heard it's not good to switch from synthetic back to regular oil but guess not...
