What kind of oil ?

Recommended Posts

It is time to change the oil in my 04' XR250r and I was wondering what weight , brand etc. to use ? I live in Iowa so I get all temps that I ride in.

What would you or do you use ?

Thanks,

Raz

What does the owner's manual suggest? You'd be hard pressed to find more of an expert than the people that designed and built your ride.

10W40 if its going to be cold out. Otherwise 15W-50.

Any good quality full synthetic motorcycle oil is the way to go. Which brand is all personal preference. I've had good luck with Maxima Maxum 4 Extra.

I run 15w50 in my '00XR400, of various name brands, full synthetic. When I talked to the guys at Thumper Racing that's doing my 440 kit, after looking at the innards of it, they said what ever I was doing maintenance-wise and using oil-wise, keep it up cause it looked great.

Hey, Trailrider42, was that the motercycle rated oil that you are using or auto oil. I'm debating on what to use also.
