    Hey just curious what brand/kind of oil everyone uses. A friend told me about Maxima brand oil so I bought some and just changed my oil the other day. I'll report any postives/negatives if there are any

    Ut-oh...



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    What oil threads are infamous for causing arguments and endless discussion.



    If this is a serious question and not a wind up, then a good quality brand name within Yamaha's spec is the only recommendation from me.



    Other opinions will be along soon no doubt.

    I have tried a few different oils. When I first bought my tw I used 15w40 rotella oil then mobil 1 20w50 syn and currently running 5w40 syn rotella t6 for the colder weather coming. All of these i can get at my local walmart which is nice. Both of the rotella oils I mentioned do say they meet the requirements of jaso dh-2 and jaso MA. Some run automotive oils, diesel oils and motorcycle specific oils. Everybody has opinions on it but as long as it's not energy-conserving, you change it often and you don't run it to low or "out" i really doubt that you ever have a problem.

    I suggest you take this advice as basic gospel, then read the next 26 pages which are sure to result for their entertainment value and the few kernels of valid info presented.

    "26 pages " haha that's funny. I wasn't trying to start a civil war or anything just curious if anyone found something significantly better than the others.

    Yamalube. If there is nothing that everyone can agree is better, why change?

    I use Yamalube, figure what came from the factory must be good enough.

    I'd like to hear what Qwerty has to say about Yamalube.
