    gp1300r and oil question

    I have a 2008 gp1300r and a friend of mine gave me 2 boxes of 4 1 gallon bottles each box (8 gallons) of Yamaha 2W semi syntetic oil. The date of manufacture of the oil is 2001, all bottles are sealed and the boxes too. Are they good to go ?? as they have 9 years from now.....

    There was a thread about this before and it seemed the consensus was the oil will in fact go bad. I would not chance it.

    oil should not go bad, pour some into a clear container and see how it looks, if you can see separation in the oil then I would probably get some new stuff but if it looks normal it should be good to go just my $.02
