According to the Kawasaki site you should use SE class SAE 10W40, 10W50, 20W40 or 20W50 oil for the engine. You use SAE 10W oil for the front fork.

I run a 10w40 vavoline motorcycle oil JASO standards and have no problems, i change it around 2500 or 3000 miles. Just make sure that is a motorcycle oil with the JASO rating which is made to handle wet clutches.
