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?

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.
