Oh, you're a funny one. :bonk:

Amsoil is my recommendation, too, but that wasn't the question. Frankly, I wouldn't use Lucas because of its tendency to foam, but it's not my decision.

Stick with the Yamalube. It's a top notch oil.

I find it so amusing that people go so out of their way to purchase off brand bling race oil. Can anyone here honestly attribute Yamalube to blowing and engine warranting the need for a "better" oil ? I've been running Yamalube semi-syn since 04 both in summer and winter, never had a single issue. The best bonus using Yamalube ? It's right on the shelf 15 min. away from my house at my local dealer.

Yes, on one occasion, the oil was a suspect. It wasn't new, but it appeared to have failed

Apart from being a better oil, and costing less than a comparable Yamalube product, 15 minutes is way out of the way. Amsoil brings it to me. :bonk:

The best part about amsoil, apart from being a better oil, is that I can be a dealer for 6 months free and buy it under retail, and it also comes to me!

Am I understanding you correctly when you say "Amsoil brings it to me" meaning you have a Amsoil sponsorship of some sort ? Sorry, wrong reason to be throwing out positive plugs for Amsoil. Lot of snowmobilers like Amsoil, many snowmobilers say the stuff is junk, I guess simply all your personall preference. Lastly if your Yamalube failed, it was contaminated with water or contaminated with metal filings, not simply a sub par lubricant. This are my opinions, and i'm stickin' to em! :foul:

Nope. I signed up as a preferred customer, and buy it online. It's delivered to my door step

Lastly if your Yamalube failed, it was contaminated with water or contaminated with metal filings, not simply a sub par lubricant.

The engine in question had a functional oil pump, and oil was present at the site of the failure (crankshaft on a 4 cylinder). The oil was obviously contaminated with metallic debris since there was a shaft/bearing failure, but the oil analysis that was done revealed that the oil was badly oxidized, and was at the lower edge of SAE 30 as tested (it was supposed to be a 40). As the clearances of the crank were known to have been correct, no other cause for the failure was ever found.

YamaLube is not made by Yamaha, but I imagine you knew that. Depending on which country you buy it in, it comes from about 3 different refiners/blenders world-wide. It has been supplied to Yamaha by at least 3 different companies in my time in the sport, making it a little difficult to say exactly what it is we're talking about. The very latest iteration of YL seem to be a fairly big improvement, though, but most other good oils have done so, too.

I've been running Lucas Semi synthetic 10/40 in my 2010 YZ450 with no problems. The only reason I run Lucas is because I get it for free. Seems to be OK. I ride only motocross at high rpm's and change every 2 rides.
