I know they say Delo oil but has anyone tried Amsoil with the rekluse??? Will the clutch perform better with a non-syn??? I never did change to Delo or a 15w-40 because I had a few guys tell me the oil breaks down fast and is dirty?? Any thoughts??

Thanks Justin

I've used Amsoil since I got my 04 YZ450, I recently
installed a rekluse & it works perfectly. Absolutely no
problems.

Correct. Run the Rotella and change it often. :lol:

Yep, I buy it in the gallon jugs and have a stainless filter. I change mine way too often but it only costs a few dollars a change now. I figure its well worth it to have my Rekluse work so well and last longer. :confused:

But from what I have read about oil the Diesel engine oils break down much faster in the small 4strokes and don't do much for protection in the gears and tranny.

Don't leave the oil in your bike forever and then you don't have to worry about it breaking down.

Most of us change the oil every ride or every other ride, broke down or not, its not causing problems.
