Oil Level Confusion Avoidance


Chickenhauler

I recently got sick of having to consult my owners manual about how much oil my bikes need, (those with multiple bikes know it gets confusing) and not all these bikes had the amount needed to fill to capacity during a change marked on them, so I used an electric engraver to engrave the proper CC quantity near all the fill caps on every bike. Now, as long as I use my Ratio-Rite, its a perfect fill every time.

      Just bought a 2004 yz250f and want to know what the best engine oil I can use on it. After some research on forum pages I found that Valvoline Full Sythetic 10W-40 Motorcycle Oil or Shell Rotella  15W-40 Heavy Duty Engine Oil are oils that people recommend on many bikes. On the other hand the owner's manual says:

      At 40 Fahrehiet or higher Yamalube 4 (20W-40) or SAE 20W-40 type SG motor oil
      (Non-friction modified)
      At 60 Fahrenhit or lower Yamalube 4 (10W-30) or SAE 10W-30 type SG Motor oil
      (Non-friction modified)
      and/or Yamalube 4-R (15W-50) (non-friction modified)
      So any suggestions on what I should go with?
       
      *Couldnt find another topic like mine, link me if you know of any that would answer my question, or just give me your suggestion.

      Hello all !
      I've just bought a yr 2000 drz400e, really pleased with it.
      What oil do you recommend for a low mileage model (<1000 miles)?
      Mineral or semi synthetic?
      Thanks in advance...

      FYI,
      After looking over a number of posts on the entire TT site, I decided to follow some advise regarding cheap m/c cleaners and try a bottle of SHOUT spray stain remover on the 06 TE 450. (This was after two pretty muddy rides).
      I sprayed the bike off with a garden hose, getting the big dirt/mud chunks off...then soaked the entire bike with SHOUT. I let the cleaner soak for about 20 minutes and the results were spectacular. A simple light spray with the garden hose and it was clean as a whistle. Hubs, engine, plastics etc...it worked wonderfully and at 2 bucks a bottle I really recommend it. Plus it smells good. If you have not used it try it, you'll like it.
      Also, here is a link to a pic and short video of the TE in action somewhere in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas.
