    Yamaha 10w-30?

    Sorry for another oil thread, I searched and did not find much. Went to get some oil from the local dealer and was told that Yamaha doesnt make the 10w-30 any more and I was supposed to use the 20w-40. Is this correct? Will this oil hurt the performance or should I go with another 10w-30? I know the manual specifically states 10w-30. Please feel free to post what you use and how it has worked. I have an 07 FX HO, almost time for the 10 hr change. Thanks

    Correct Yamaha does not have the 10w-30 anymore. You can use another marine 10w-30 oil. You can also use the AMSOIL 10w-30 Synthetic Marine Oil. http://www.amsoil.com/redirect.cgi?z...storefront/wcf

    For what it is worth FLSCIC, I had to get some oil the other day for my nephews 07 VX. Dealer told us to run Yamalube 4W (10-40), but the RPM's the HO turns I would think the thicker oil would be better. IMO
    Since this is not my bike I wanted to get what his father had got from the dealer. Yamalube=markup

    confused

    What is the difference in 4W and 4M, they both say 10w-30? Here is the link: http://www.parkeryamaha.com/index.as...ry=1068&Page=2
