    Best acceleration mod for the money?

    New to the site and to the ultra 250.
    Bought my '07 two weeks ago...it was brand new out of the crate.
    I removed most of the stickers and like the way it looks.




    I have been reading on this forum and plan to do the oil contamination mod asap.
    Also been reading the project 250x site.
    Just a couple questions...
    Whats the best acceleration mod for the money?
    Can I use Mobil 1 oil or should I run marine/motorcycle oil only?
    Where is the cheapest place to buy oil filters and do you guys change them every oil change?

    Welcome to the forum Gen, and nice looking ski and trailer. Where are you located?

    I'll let someone else address the acceleration as i'd need to think for a bit, but regarding the oil, you should use oil that is rated to meet or exceed API SG, or JASO MA (which most motorcycle oil is that i have found). There is a guy here Kevin "800amsoil4u"

    He'll be able to tell you if AMSoil is rated same/better as well as Mobil 1 or synthetics in general.
