Favorite Oil / Filter???
Posted May 13, 2003 - 09:12 AM
After 9 years of street riding, I have finally taken the plunge into off road riding. I have quickly found out that there are probably more differences than similarities between street and dirt bikes...
Question: Is there a favorite oil / filter among the forum members? I have noticed that Bel-Ray makes a "Thumper" oil that looks pretty decent. I have been using good old Yamalube 4 thus far. I know they also have the 4-R, but I don't know if it's worth the extra money (same goes for the Bel-Ray). I have always been a fan of K&N filters (air and oil) and have picked up a couple of oil filters for the WR, but I don't know if that's worth the money either. I guess it all boils down to this:
Is it worth the extra money to buy the "premium" oils / filters when the change rate is so frequent? I almost wonder if it makes any difference at all since one should change the oil after every couple of rides anyway.
What do you think???
