    Engine specification for oil

    What does the factory recommend for the oil viscosity? I desire to use Amsoil or another quality full synthetic oil. There is only a Yamaha dealer in my town.

      I used to use 20w-50 in the summer months, but now just use 10w-40 year round.

            I'd just use Rotella T6. You can get it at many places and usually there is a rebate at wal-mart. It is a Great oil and meets JASOC standards for wet clutch motorcycles, which is the standard you are wanting to meet. Hope that helps.
