Yes you can use Synthetic. Many of us have been doing so for many years. Just make sure you purchase oil that is formulated specifically for motorcycles.

My fzr 1000 87 jumped out of gear when i gave it a boot full, is my gear box on its way out?

If it jumps out of gear then the drive dogs on the side of the gears in the gearbox are worn and need replacing along with the matching drive or driven gear.the oil type is 10 w 40 only use this and also make sure it not fully synthetic or the clutch will slip.

What oil can you use for a wr400, 2000 model?

I use a synthetic 10w40 in mine. Amsoil is expensive, but I would rather change oil, than a piston. I race in the woods, and change my oil and filter every three hours of runing time. You can go longer for milder riding such as every 5 to 6 hours. Yamaha also sells a good oil, synthetic, and semi-synthetic.

Where do you drain oil on 1997 yamaha fzr600 and is castrol 4 stroke 10w 40 oil good enough

the plug to drain the system is on the very bottom of the crankcase, and yes the oil you have is good enough, i prefer full synthetic but that is optional.

What kind of oil do i need to put in my 1991 yamaha fzr 600?

Any motorcycle oil will do. Castol or motul are good ones. Don't use oil for cars as the antiwear aditives will make your clutch slip. Synthetic oil is good. I use the motul ester 20w50 in my bike it run great and you only have to do one change at the start of the season. synthetic oil is usualy good for about 15000km unless you put more on than that.
Hope this helps.

Would mobil 1 synthetic 10w40 be a safe alternative for a 1989 fzr1000 with 14000kms?

Good quality oil is the cheapest form of insurance!!!
there are realy great synthetic oils around now!
it also depends on the weather extremes that you ride in!!
10 w 40 is a safe bet!
Cheers Rob

I have a 2007 Honda VTX 1300 R motorcycle, I heard Lucas 20-50 syn oil would be great for this bike. Is that true?

NO WAY SHOULD YOU USE SYNTHETIC OIL IN YOUR BIKE. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

This is from a Honda service manual. The bigger bikes like yours get the 10w40 or 10w50.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

Correct oil fuel ratio,1980 Pe 400

32 to 1 gas and oil > Two Stroke Engine Oil ( not Motor oil ). This equals 4ounces oil per gallon of gas.

Use premium unleaded gas. No Ethanol gas.

10w40 motor oil for the gearbox. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks Beetle100! :)
