Quick Oil Question

That's transmission oil, not engine oil.

As the 2nd post says:


The oil you pour into your filler cap on the WR-250R lubricates the whole engine - top end, bottom end, clutch, and transmission.

On your 2-strokes, the oil you pour in through the filler cap lubes just the clutch and tranny.


You need some 4-stroke engine oil.

10/40 is just fine and dandy.


Read your Owner's Manual before you blow it up real good.

      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...

      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.
