Question about 2008 Yamaha YZF-R6
This is a somewhat open Question/debate. It depends on what country you are in, what products are readly available to you, what your local climate is like. These things all affect which oil I would in any of my bikes.
It's safe to say that genuine Yamaha oil would be the safe sugestion.
Otherwise I would consult your owners manual as to the desired weight of oil for the season/temperature your in & substitute this with any leading brand of full synthetic MOTORCYCLE oil.
This is to say that car type oils are not designed spacifically for wet clutches & transmission lubrication which are major perameters when it comes to bike oils. This is also not to say that some high quality car oils would not work fine.
This is why I stick to motorcycle spacific oils/lubricants.
Leading brands that I have used are Bel-ray,motul,syn-lube,motorex,castrol,silkoline
Hope this helps Regards
