i used to use the standard Yamalube..... then a guy at the dealer told me about the Semi Sythitic R-4 10W-50 they have.... so i started using that.... works good.... bike felt better and shifted better.....

i've been told that some Full synthetic oils will eat away at your clutch disk and make it wear faster.... just something to think about when choosing an oil

If you are going to go with the Yamalube use the 20/40 instead of the 10/30. It is designed for warmer temps and with summer around the corner I doubt you will be riding much when it is below 40

Just my .02

I personally am looking for a good synthetic and have not yet decided on what I'm gonna use.

Ok they only had two bottles of yamalube left at the bike store and they didnt sell Motul so I went and bought 4 bottles of Suzuki 10w40 4-cycle oil....will this be ok to use for a few months....

oh yea...they had some brand called Sikolene or something 6.99 per quart...is that good stuff?

i saw some 20w50 yamalube racing oil...whats that all about?
