Yamalube is expensive though. Believe it or not, many cheaper oils are very good as well. Look for posts on oil by moderator Sunruh for the best advice on which oils to use. He sends in a lot of samples for testing after trying them out in his bike. I'd put more weight in his opinions on lubrication in our high-shear transmissions than most lubrication engineers.

yamalube is good stuff, but I switched to bel-ray 10w40 and love it, Ive run yamalube, valvoline, and now the bel ray stuff, Im sticking with bel ray
I went from Yamalube to Bel-Ray, it shifts so much smoother. I'm going to try out Amsoil, there test show it lubricates better, and has more power.

Are you talking the EXL stuff or a different version of belray
I used there thumper oil, the EXL, EXS(i think), and there superbike oil. all performed nearly the same.
but the SB oil definately is a bit better.
