Re: What oil is best?
It's an opinionated question. Here's my take.
Any oil from any OEM, in this case Yamaha, works perfectly fine. It can easily net you 100,000 miles or more.
Yamaha OEM flters are great. They work well with the motor as they were designed to do. What's not to like? There's another Japanese brand who makes some great filters as well as many others. I stick to the Yamaha filters. If it ain't broke...
Back to the oil, synthethics and conventionals both are great. I use Motul 300V as I'm at the track spinning high RPMs constantly. It's the best oil I ever used - no lie. Bike always shift smooth as butter, it seems to run a little bit cooler, it keeps the engine clean, and it smells great. The only down sides are the price and it's super dooper slippery if it gets on your hands or anywehere else. IMHO, it's still the best.
I'm still a fan of Yamaha oils, and I was using them for the past year - the 10W-40 conventional to be exact. No problems. Just change it every 3000 - 5000 miles depending on your riding habits, and you're good.
Tons of threads where people offered opinions on oils. This is just mine.
Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!
I love my R6, but...there's no buts...
