Just picked up a 2015 FZ-07 for a very good price yesteray, but so far only got to ride it home in the rain from the used car dealer I purchased it from. The previous owner put a Puig windscreen and Michelin Pilot radials on the bike. Other than that, I don't believe there are any other changes.

A quick question: Since the dealer took this in as a trade in, I have no way of knowing if the previous owner used synthetic or regular oil. Is there a way to tell just by looking at the old oil when I drain it?

Thank you in advance for any advice. Hope to ride my new bike to work tomorrow if the rain holds off.

It doesn't really matter, use whichever oil type that you prefer. If you go with synthetic though, make sure that it is NOT energy conserving synthetic as that has Moly in it and will cause clutch slippage.
