Oil and Transmission question

Recommended Posts

My dealer told me that if i switched back to dyno oil from synthetic i would ruin my clutch plates. I find this kinda hard to believe but then again maybe true due to different swelling chararistics of the oils and the plates? I was going to change oil and put in dyno oil for the winter (cheaper- and then drain it before the spring ridding)as riding is done here for the year. Hunters are out in the woods! Any comments or words of wisdom? I run full synthetic in my 2002 XR400. I did go with synthetic for the winter storage - so this is just a "test" to see if the dealer guy is ok or BS.

Thanks

Greg

Your dealer sounds like a complete dumbass. Never heard that one before. Probably wants to continue to sell you synthetic

I second that. However, why not keep using synthetic? It does not have to be Mototrcycle specific. Shell Rotella or Mobil 1 red cap would be two.
