$0.00 (I gave my buddy a floor drill press, a 3000 watt coleman generator, and a 55 cf argon tank with regulator, and let him borrow my Hobart Stickmate AC/DC welder for a long time).

What fuel mix does it like and what tranny oil is best? Thanks for the reply!

32:1 ratio gas/oil. I use/recommend Yamalube 2-R

For tranny oil, I use/recommend Yamaha Trans Oil Plus

I had a '99. Change the tranny oil often (like once a month) and you won't have any gear issues. I neglected my oil changes and blew 3rd gear.

You might wonder why I use Yamaha oils. My local Yamaha/Suzuki dealer had a parts guy that rode RMs (got one every year). When I told him of my tranny problem, he took me over to the Yamaha oil rack and put like 4 of the Trans Oil Plus bottles in my arms and said change it every other ride and you'll never have any tranny problems. I've done that on my '04, but most people would say that's excessive, so that's why I said every month. At like $5 a bottle, that's cheap insurance.
