    Syn. OIL Change

    Well I have logged 10 hours on my 2010 vx 1100 and time to change the oil. I would like to use royal purple or something like that. But the most oil that can be sucked out of the oil tank is just over 2.5qt that leaves over a qt. still in the motor. With that much oil left can you mix the syn oil with it? What oil would you use?
    Thanks
    Billy

    Lots of discussion regarding this subject. Search for all the different threads discussing this topic.

    I will say that I changed my oil exactly as you are describing and all is well. I used the oil extractor sold in the online store (here on GH) and I went with Amsoil marine oil. I also change mine a bit more often than is called for.

    I found that if I wait 5 minutes in between extraction attempts that I can suck more oil out each time. Don't know why but it has worked for me and I get almost 3 qts. out give or take.

    I did the same thing and got at least 3 qts out.
