CA Type of engine oil?

Wat type of oil is everyone running? Is it okay to use a castrol or valvoline 10w40 or is it important to stay with the yamalube?

I dont have any engine work done yet so i switched to valvoline 10w40 about a year ago. I have'nt noticed any difference yet, but its alot cheaper than the yamalube. Anybody heard anthing different?

Ive been running Castrol 10-40 since new never had any problems. I change the oil and filter around each 300-400 miles. Always have used it in all my quads, rails cars and diesel version for my truck.
You can use the synthetic if ya feel better about it but its alot more money. Castrol has always been the oil of choice for me for years.

Is that an oil filter from Pep Boys? I've heard of that brand before but I'm not sure where. It would be nice to be able to get a filter some other place besides the dealer.

Yes, they are available at Pep Boys. If you use the PL14610 add a little more oil as they are longer than stock. The PL14612 is the stock length.

The only local place I've found for Purolator is Advance Auto Parts. We don't have Pep Boys here.

Ive found a drop in oil temps using amsoil 10w-40 of about 10-15 degrees depending on the type of terrain. sand oil temps are warmer than desert oil temps. This is on a built 660 motor.

temps

I agree with the previous post, temps did drop with the amsoil 10-40w motorcycle oil. The amsoil will most likely save your motor if you lose your oil pump or some other lack of friction issue occurs....it is cheap insurance on an expensive toy.
