    YAMALUBE vs...

    Brand new 2018, I will change the oil at 100-300 & 600 as recommended by many members here. My closest Yamaha dealer is quite a drive and I was wondering if there is much difference between YAMALUBE and a major brand 10-40 motorcycle oil that I can get at Autozone or Riley’s. Thank you

    Short answer. No discernible difference. Just make sure whatever you choose is compatible with a wet clutch.

    My O'Riley's has this :

    You can't go wrong.

    Hopefully you have a 6 sided 19mm socket.
    You may need to take off the skid plate to get the proper angle . Extensions tend to slip off.
    After you break the bolt free the first time, only tighten it about 80% and you'll be able to do it without taking off the skid plate and you can use an extension.

    Text me if you or the bolt gets stuck.

    I noticed a difference going to synthetic.
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Thank you. I will switch to synthetic after the 600 mi. change. Any suggestions for a conventional motorcycle oil for wet clutch?

    I just got off the phone with Rick "Top Predator" and he is currently compiling an extensive list of differences between Yamalube and your local dino oil. We all look forward to reading his evaluation!
