Yamalube Or Penrite 10w-40 Racing
I couldn't find a oil thread page for the yamaha's
I have a Yamaha fzr sho, im just wondering what oil would be better the original yamalube or the penrite 10w-40 racing??
I have been using the penrite 10w-40 racing as the ski has 16Ib boost going through it, but would it be better to stick the penrite or go back to the yamalube?

If it has friction modifiers and you're running factory supercharger, no. It will cause the sprag on the SC drive to slip.

Here is the information on the AMSOIL*10w-40 Synthetic Marine Oil. It does not have friction modifiers. It gets shipped to your front door. This is the link for the owner of this site GreenHulk Jerry.
Helps keep this site going.

The next oil change will be with Amsoil. Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with Yamalube and is currently what I'm using in both of our FZ'S. I prefer a synthetic oil.

They reduce friction. Simple as that.

The oil needs to be a MA/MA2 spec oil for the clutch spec.
