    FZS OIL

    Hi all thanks for taking the time to read my Thread,I am about to change the oil and filter on my 2009 FZS i will be sticking with the yamaha filter but not decided on oil.
    Been told to use yamalube by dealer i noticed that its mineral not synthetic.
    I have always used mobil 1(dirtbike specific) in my dirtbikes and have never had any problems 15w 50
    I dont care how much the oil costs just want he best for the ski recommendation would be greatly appruciated.
    Also this oil change will be done at the start of winter,would also like to run the same oil in summer.(will only do a few hours over winter)
    Temps winter 20degC summer 20-35 degC
    Thanks all

    I run motorcycle oil Mobil1 MX4 is a good product...... I personally run Amsoil 10W40 in hot summer months, in wintermonths and spring I run 10W30 its personal prefrence but sticking with oem filter is smart!

    I change the oil at home bought an oil vacoum working on Car battry DC ( it will work fast when you start the car ) i always take out about 3 litres , i used Castrol GTX 20-50 , in your case i recommend to use 10-30 , and i use toyota camry v6 oil filtre much cheaper and fit good
    Hope this information is useful

    Most bike shops carry this oil,heaps of it on ebay.
    I cant decide yamalube is only mineral based, i really like synthetic oil, cant see why they make full synthetic for there outboards but not for there pwc?
    Might try some Ams oil if i can get it in Aus
