Synthetic oil - wr426
Posted October 24, 2002 - 07:55 AM
Thanks for the advice and for the wealth of info here. As background, I last strapped my legs around a RM250 20 years ago, forgot how much fun it was when I rode my son's new Suzuki Ozark a couple weeks ago. Immediately starting looking for a 4-stroke Suzuki to trail ride with him - always owned Suzuki's. But after discovering this site and finding a couple month old 426 with 60 miles I sucked it up and bought a as new Yamaha - still hard to say. But after riding last 2 Sundays, must say it is a great bike. Cut the throttle stop last week - big difference, but had a hard time leaving the airbox cover off - so it's still there.
Oh, I am SW of Albany, NY - anyone near? Thanks

On the other hand, is synthetic really better, especially when most of us change the oil after every hundred miles or so? Think of the additional cost. From my experience, synthetic didn't buy any performance increase. I do like to use it occasionally, however, just to clean out the engine. It is just a personal preference.
