What kind of oil for ZZR-600

What brand/type/viscosity oil should I use on a '03 ZZR-600?
What brand of oil filter (if not Kawi)?

It's easier to walk into a Kawasaki dealer and walk out with an oil filter. - I don't use any other kind.

As far as oil goes, I use MOBIL 1 MX4T Full Synthetic Motorcycle Oil

Tha't just me, everyone else will tell you to just go ahead an buy regular car oil , I don't agree with this, But it's your choice.

I usually use petroleum based oil (Bike Maunfacturer OEM Product) until I have a couple thousand miles on the bike then switch to full synthetic motorcycle oil MOBIL 1 MX4T. The reason for this is to allow mating parts to wear in first. The synthetic is so good that the wear is significantly reduced.

how about a semi-sythetic for my older bike? or would just getting the honda oil work well?

Why can't I use car oil?
I have been told not to use car oil, but nobody has been able to explain why.
