TT500 oil questions
Posted January 25, 2009 - 07:01 PM
First, my wife has a 2007 TTR125 Yamaha with a Rekluse clutch. We live in the same town they are built, & had the mfg install it. They recommended Shell Rotella T oil for use with the Rekluse. They also said it was a great oil to use in my older TT. SO, any opinions or experience with the Shell oil?
Second. I've contemplated using a synthetic in the TT, but have heard stories about converting an older bike to synthetics. Something about it loosens up varnish or whatever and can clog the oil passages.
I change my oil about every 5-6 rides. I'm an older (55) rider & don't bomb like the young guys. Is my oil change intervals about right.
I've just come back to riding after 30 some years & have forgotten most that I knew

The bottom line is that just about any oil will be superior to what was available back in the day.
