XT225 oil

Recommended Posts

A little history and info would help us give a better answer .

How many miles are on the bike and what kind of miles were they ? Do you know the bikes previous maintenance schedule ?

What range of temperatures will you be riding in and will you ride easy or like you stole it ?

Got a few thousand Ks, not a great heap, temperatures about 30 to 35 degrees c (86 to 95 f), I will go fairly fast on it but not rev the crap out of it and no idea of the maintenance schedule previously.

I use Mobil 1 Racing 4T (formerly MX4T) 10-40 in everything. Air cooled bikes are tough on oil, as are transmissions. (chopping effect by gears)

Don't run car oil. Be sure it is JASO MA spec.
