How can you get mad at a guy with an avatar like that? lol, I guess we're all new at some point. I went with standard Yamalube 4, 10W-30. I may switch to synthetic or semi-syn once the motor has more break in time. If your bke is basically stock, you change your oil regularly, factory oil will be as good or better then any. You can spend huge money on other stuff but may not see much out of it other then light wallet.

no worries dude. Sorry if I came across as a dick. Gets kind of annoying sometimes when we see the same questions over and over, and no one really uses the "search" button. But we are all here to help one another. Happy riding!!

I'm new to the rappy, but not new to quads. For years I've used Rotella T 5w40 synthetic in all of my vehicles. My Motorcycle (Hayabusa), my quads (Rincon and Z400), my truck, my lawn mower, everything that uses oil. It works great. I plan on using it in the rappy too once she's broken in.

The good thing is I can get the oil at Wal Mart for about 15 bucks a gallon.

I ran Yamalube for 3 oil changes then switched to Amsoil 0w40.

I have been using yamalube for years and years now. Good stuff and a great price. I use 20w-40 cause it doesnt get very cold here but gets hot as hell.
