What's everyone use?
I'm gonna be changing mine this weekend and i'm curious as to what I should use? I'm gonna go synthetic but other than that i'm not sure.
Thanks

I am a cheap bastard. I am still using what some call yamafoam (aka yamalube). I use the standard Yamaha oil filter. I change the oil about every 2000 miles. No problems yet.

you are not supposed to run full synthetic til after your third oil change........I run a Castrol blend......but when my third oil change comes I am gonna run full synthetic......

I change to Mobil synthetic at about 6000 miles.

Made a bit of a difference, seemed to smooth out the gear change a bit.

i think the new ones just come with regular non synthetic stuff. you have to remember that the oil also lubes the clutch so dont use anything too crazy.
