    Just Got A 1300 Have ????

    So i just picked up my 1300 on Sat it didnt come with an owners manual or nothing so my question is. How much oil do i put into this machine ? I understand that I can just fill it up like a car (my 1200 is premix) but how much to i put in and does the brand of oil matter ? Also is there anything special or different i gotta do to this machine that i do or dont do to my 1200r when it comes to maint and care after riding?

    Couple options


    Add yamalube to the oil tank ( or injector oil of preference, I like Amsoil)

    Or

    Switch to premix, remove pump, and add blockoff.

    Exactly, if you take off the seat and shine a flashlight toward the oil tank you can see the oil level, if you fill too much your feedtube will have oil in it and may leak a little oil. We've all done it, not the end of the world If you do.

    No problem, I'm sure you know this, but I read your initial question again. This is a 2 stroke an not like a car, you will use oil continuously and keep having to add it. It does not "reuse" oil as a car or 4 stroke

    It sounds like your ski is still stock? You have to worry about certain oils clogging your cat con. Yamalube is fine, Amsoil interceptor should be fine also.
