How much oil and what kind do I use for a 1993 Suzuki GSXR 750?

As long as you aren't talking about Fork Oil, normally, the filler has a dipstick.

From here

so I found my manual; it specifies that an '04-'05 GSXR 750 should take SF or SE motor oil 10W-40. It does not say specifically that motorcycle oil should be used nor does it specify synthetic vs. regular. I also do not know whether SG or other grades of oil would be better. I probably ought to read an oil guide but, for the benefit of others, perhaps somebody could provide some input.

Fork Oil type and quantity is here

What's the correct oil-level and grade on front fork??

Std fork oil grade all around is 10W, depending on bike usage and preference, it can go down to 5W or up to 30W.
Oil level usually run from 175 -250 cc per fork, too much oil will cause fork to be stiff, not enough can damage fork seal, so go by trial and error but the amount should not run far from above numbers. Good luck!
