    Oil capacity says 4.1 quarts. But you wont get that much out. I just changed mine and got close to 3.5 quarts. My local dealer told me to just use 10w 40 your preference. I like Castrol and royal purple myself. And the filter is only like 20 some bucks.

    Well some people will say yes and some people will say no...I mean its OIL....My local dealer told me hey its goin to do the same thing. He told me to get the reg. oil like u put in your truck or car and it will save u bout 10 bucks and does the same thing. He has tore down motors usin the Yamahalube and reg motor oil and he said they looked the same. So people on here will tell u yes and no...I just changed mine and put reg castrol 10w-40 and put bout 4 hours on it yesterday and it rode just fine and checked the oil when i got done ridin and it was fine. Maybe after 10 more hours i will tell a difference if theres goin to be any. But i doubt there will be.

    Great tip!! Oil everywhere would have made me 2nd guess changing my own oil. Getting prices of $150-$225 just for an oil change made it an easy choice to do it myself even if I will only do once every few years.
