    just bought a brand new 2015 tm 200

    Want to run it a bit then switch it out to full synthetic. Any ideas on which oil is best and why. Im up in B.C. Canada and temps are from 100 degrees down to freezing during biking season

    Welcome to the forum Donny. I use Mobil 1 4T Racing oil. Nice stuff. Read about it online. Seems to be the perfect oil for our bikes.

    Yes, that is what I use. I think it is available in 20-50 weight as well.

    I like Rotella T6 5W40. Covers a wide range of temps and is relatively inexpensive (Walmart).
