I understand and have done a search on oils....but I was looking for some more input. Yamalube, Rotella (regular and synthetic), mobil 1 synthetic.
Any problems encountered? Synthetic harm the clutch?

Just some input. No wise cracks or ignorant comments, or "do a search" required...Thanks.

Shell Rotella 15W40 dino oil. Rekluse recommends this oil so thats what I use. I change it every 2-3 rides and have had no problems yet.

That is the regular "white bottle" Rotella or the blue synthetic?

I run and have run Maxima 0W30 fully synthetic race oil in all of my bikes for the last few years, zero problems whatsoever.
Slipper clutch in the Honda CRF and soon to have a slipper in the 426F.

Yamaha isn't about to steer you wrong, if they like the oil, I like it to. :thumbsup:

It dont matter what oil you put in there, it will become contaminated quick, change it often. :bonk:

I am still running the old Mobil 1 redcap. I bought 2 the last 2 cases of it that napa here in Missoula had in early december. I will probably run Amsiol when I run out of this.
