You do not have to use SUZUKI ONLY products because you have a Suzy bike. In fact many of the after-market oil filters are just as good. Personally on my Yamaha & Honda bike I use aftermarket filters & a synthetic oil called Motul, but would not hesitate to use bulk oil from any of the Big Four Jpn m/c firms or Castrol GTX or others.
Any SE or SF motor oil of the viscosity weight recommended for your bike is fine, either motorcycle oil or car oil.
Do not use any car oil with the "Energy Conserving" label or sticker on it as it may screw up your clutch..
