I'm wondering what you guys feel is the best bang for the buck engine oil for the YZF engines. I always ran Honda HP4 in my 400EX race quad, but I'm unsure what would be the best for my YZ426F engine. Thanks!

Ya know... it always pisses me off when somebody asks a question and someone jumps in and says "do a search", but in this case, this topic has been SOOOO beaten to death.....

Do a search. You'll find a dozen active threads with all kinds of info. There's even a POLL running in "General" with well over 100 responses.
The short answer?... ask 20 TT members and you'll get 20 different answers. Ask 100 TT members and you'll get 20 different answers.

I too have an '01 YZ426 and I used the Yamalube for 2yrs and now use Maxima Racing oil.... Seems to work just as well... And a little cheaper..

Oh yes, I have and would buy again the FMF Titaniam 4 system... I believe it cost something like or close to $600.00 though.... But it is great. I love what it does to the bike, and it sounds beefier too.... I wouldn't get anything else, except maybe a Yosh system.... Let me know what you go with..

Fatboy~ first off you can't go wrong with any Pro-Circuit product out there... Is is by far one of the best companies, but for me I've always had FMF stuff and that is what I chose to go with... My buddy has a 2000 YZ426 and loves his T-4, I haven't ridden it but i'm almost positive that it would have purdy much the same response as my FMF... Go with what you can get a better deal on and you'll be alright... Let me know what you get... Or if ya need anymore help let me know too..
