  • Oil and filter...

    Just called Advance Auto, they say they don't stock our oil (2000 xv1600), but they do have our filter. Just for a reference, do they maybe have the oil, but don't carry under "Yamaha"? What is the oil type, I think this is silly.

    Walmart..........Mobil 1 $9.99 a quart (4) and a Mobile 110 filter.......... done. Works for me as I could not always depend on Autozone or O'Rielys to have in stock AND I got a new super Walmart 2 blocks out my door

        Full synthetic.... Proven to work perfectly well in our bikes... Change every 4k-5k miles. If you want more options there are tons... These are absolutely well used and well proven options that are easily available...
        Amsoil ctwin
        Mobil 1 vtwin
        Rotella T6

        NAPA carries our oil filters in Gold and Platinum... These are rebranded WIX filters and are about the best you can get.

        Replace both crush washers every oil change to ensure no leaks.

          Make sure it's Mobil 1 motorcycle oil 10-40 or 20-50. Pep Boys and Oreilys usually has it too.

            As said make sure it is "Motorcycle oil" that is "Wet clutch" compatable.

                I have used Lucas non synthetic 20W50 for many years. Along with a K&N KN303C chrome filter.

                        Just changed my oil with Mobile 1 as I've done for most of the 12 yrs owning my R*, before I used Valvoline 10w40 till I switched to Mobile. Now for next time I'm considering Lucas 20w50 or RotellaT6 to possibly save some $ as I don't pack on the miles as others. Rotella T6, does it come in 20w50 and the WIX filters at Walmart same as rebranded Napa's Gold. I've been happy with Mobile 110 never had a leak issue and they are black in color which blends in with frame area
                        Last I've never changed any crush washers and don't have leaks. I ordered the washer pack of 20 from Amazon as posted just to have on hand. But my drain bolts don't have a large washer as in the pics of the pack, they have a small washer that's crushed against the base of the head. So is this an OEM washer just crushed against the base of the bolt, if so they seal so I've never thought of changing it out.......Feedback and opinions are expected

                          Reused mine twice and the second time it leaked. I use only the new OEM crush washer each time now.

                        I have used non OEM crush washers in the past from an automotive store and they leaked because they were a hard metal versus the soft OEM ones.

                            Buy the copper crush washers... They work fine. The harder silver colored ones do not. Inwould buy the OEM Yamaha crush washers but too damn expensive (have 6 soon to be 7 Yamaha bikes)

                              Did you inquire about volume purchase? With that many bike a box of 50 seems reasonable.

                            Did we ever decide if the Amzoil V-Twin has enough zinc?. I use the high zinc formula that is wet clutch compatible. I have a little red label on the front that says hi zinc formula. On the flip side it says wet clutch compatible
