Engine Oil

What engine oil is recommended for the YZ450?

I am using mine for supermotard. :ride:

ahhhhhhhhhhhhh another oil thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :ride::banana::p

quick answer from the Oil Guru's -

the oil experts here seem to all agree buy the cheapest oil that will work and change it often...Shell Rotella at Walmart............. :ride:

my answer -

As a non oil expert and not willing to argue my point....I use Amsoil Synthetic 4stroke motocycle oil..............change every 3-4hrs riding and I am happy with it. :ride:

hilarious :ride:

I asked for some oil for my bike, the guy gave me a case of Yamalube 10W-50 I said alright, Ill take it, I also have a mix of Yamalube 10W-30 and 10W-40 just for the weather. I change it every 5 hours, oil filter every 10.

Somebody needs to write a book on this topic. Maybe Jay will do it. A quick search will provide hours of entertaining reading on the topic.

Yeah and on the other thread you said that sometimes you don't use any. Even 2 dollar a quart 20w 50 is better than that..
