Welcome from northern Mi.!.. there have been many topics & posts on here as far as what oil to use, synt or conv. Amsoil 0-W-40 4 cycle for atv's is popular, covers all temps & is wet clutch safe. What ever you use make sure it is safe for wet clutches. They hold about 2.2 qts. & use a quality oil filter too.

Amsoil all the way, I find it to be a very good year round oil.

LOL! You say that now(like I did), wait until you tear your engine down and see all the wear! NO more Amsoil for me.

So what are you using now then? What kind of wear did you see on your engine? Did you notice much in the way of oil consumption
?

Right now I have Valvoline in it for the break in period. As far as the wear, I had to replace everything from excessive wear. Engine only had 286 hours and 3,980 miles on it. Amsoil installed at 200 miles and changed 200-500 miles using the Purolater filter. I always check the pil level, so it never was low.

I was amazed at all the wear, from the top end to the bottom end. Bearings were rough, wrist pin-rod had galling, oil pump even showed wear. I even had to replace the rockers and shafts as the had excessive wear.

I talked to a buddy (who is a Amsoil dealer and swears by Amsoil) and showed him all my parts. He was also amazed and said to contact Amsoil about this. He had no explanation.

Thank you all for the info. The dealer here in town is trying to sell me yamaha 10w-40 at 6.00 a quart and said that anything else besides motercycle oil or atv oil would blow up my motor. I figure he was just trying to sell me the expensive stuff. How do you know is it is wet clutch safe?
