What type of oil should i use?

15 posts in this topic

I have a 2000 Yamaha YZ426F, and i was wondering what type of oil will make my bike last longer, and how often i should change it.

The very best is amsoil. Change it every 4-6 hours seat time depending on how hard you run.

The majority of the guys I know use Shell Rotella 15W40. I've used it for years with no problems, I change it every ride. :thinking:

Honestly I run Yamalube 10 - 50 4r. Change it every 3 rides (3-4 hours). Never had a problem

Maxima 4 Extra 15/50 Seams to hold up the best in the trans/engine common volume for me. I have been racing with it for years and have had no engine or clutch issues. Knock on wood....

I have not tried the Amsoil...... But hear nothing but good things about it.
