Changing oil in XR 250

Recommended Posts

The manual says only use oil approved for a 4 stroke motorcycle. Does this mean I cant use regular 20W-50 in the crank case? Is there a difference between Honda 4 stroke oil and Penzoil or Castrol? Thanks.

Your new to the site so we'll go easy on you. :)

Really though, just go to the "search forum" and type in: Oil.

Hang on tight, it's the hottest subject in our forum.

Any oil is better than no oil.

Clean oil is better than dirty oil.

Keep the bike oil clean and at the proper level is best.

Synthetic vs "Dino" Oil = Long debate

Motorcycle vs Car Oil = Longer debate

I was all set to pick up a case of 15-50 Mobil 1 and Costco didn't have it in stock. :) Not sure if I want to try Delo 15-40.

See the Thread titled "SUMPOLOGY". It will explain everything.
