Sorry if this issue has already been up.. What are you guys using for oil in your 450's.. Can we use synthetic ? Since it's all in one... I know I couldn't in my Yz250F..

Let me know what you know..

I'm running Amsoil Synthetic Motorcycle Formula 10W-40. Changing oil about 3-4 rides.

Maxima 10w 40 Extra, or Maxima 5w 50 Ultra for tracks where I plan on long ride with lots of High revs. Both are 100% synthetic are are excellent. I have been using it in all my four strokes including my Harley for 5 years, and my motors have held up excellent. Very little wear products, and oil stays clean longer. I recommend Maxima.

3-4 Rides! :thumbsup: I change mine every ride, filter every other ride. How many hours are you putting into you're bike during those 3-4 rides Jason?

I use castrol evo tec 10w-40. Changing the oil every ride seems a little extreme to me. I mean yeah its better than doing it every 3 or 4 rides or whatever, but that gets a little expensive. I do mine like every 4 rides with about 2 hours each ride. So every 8 hours.

idk, 2 hours of total ride or more is a ride for me so...

Oh, not bad then...I ride like 5-6 hours per day.

Buy oil in bulk (cases) along with oil filters...it's not that expensive, lasts you a entire year of riding. Plus 5 hours is a good time for a oil change.

I use the Suzuki oil and change around 4 hours. I use a HiFlo filter and change it every second oil change (around 8 hours). If you don't have one, invest in an hour meter.
