Motorcycle oils and passenger car oils are very similar, with the exception of a couple of areas that are key to motorcycle operation. The first area concerns common sumps, or the use of motor oil, to lubricate and cool the transmission. As you know, in a passenger car the transmission is lubricated by an ATF fluid, which has frictional properties required for transmission operation. In a motorcycle, where the transmission may be lubricated by the engine oil, an engine oil that does not have the same level of friction modification (for fuel economy) of a typical passenger car engine oil will provide better transmission performance in terms of transmission lock-up and slippage. So motorcycle engine oil does not contain the friction modifiers of a passenger car engine oil. The second area of concern for motorcycle engine oils is that they tend to shear (breakdown viscosity) more quickly than a typical passenger car. Mobil 1 motorcycle oils are designed to provide exceptional protection against viscosity loss.

SOURCE: Can I use after market motorcycle oil in my HD

Yes, any quality air cooled engine oil will suffice, and in a pinch/emergency any oil is better than no/ very low oil.

I just changed the oil in my Honda 750 Shadow and switched to Synthetic Oil. As you mentioned this could cause the clutch to slip. Wel it 's slipping. What's the fix?


I'm assuming that you have a "wet" clutch, unlike most cars that have a "dry" clutch. "Wet" means that the clutch sits in the engine oil, "dry" ... that it doesn't!
It's very important that you use only oil specifically made for motorcycles if you have a wet clutch, synthetic or not. The formulation of the oil-additives is different if it is to be used with clutches.

Using "normal" "car" oil, whether it is synthetic or not, is highly likely to result in clutch slip.

If this is what has happened then I can only suggest this course of action:
> Drop that oil out and replace the oil filter
> Refill with cheap motorcycle oil
> Drive for 10 or so miles, get the engine nice and warm
> Drop that oil out
> Refill with cheap motorcycle oil again and drive 10 miles
>> Hopefully at this point the clutch slip will be gone
> Drop that oil out and change the oil filter.
> Now fill with "nice" motorcycle oil

Best of luck :-)

What is the engine oil capacit for a 1976 yamaha DT 400 Enduro? what type of oil< and does the oil injection fill separately but with same oil?


The gearbox takes motorcycle gearbox oil 20w40, this can be the same as 4 stroke motorcycle oil, the capacity will be marked on the casing next to the filler 1.5l or similar. Dont use car oil or the clutch may slip.
The oil injection is separate and different , use 2 stroke engine oil. buy from a bike shop or some auto shops.
I had the 1977 model from new, one of the best trail bikes I have owned.

I have a drz70 and just need to know type of motor oil it takes.


G'day.
I can help you with this one, easy.
You want to use a 10 w 40 motorcycle engine oil(depending on the climate of where you live).You can purchase many different brands of different qualities,but for your little bike you don't need to go too mad.You don't need to use anything too expensive like synthetic oil.
See your local bike shop & they will be able to help you select a good one.
The thing to remember here is to use an engine oil designed for motorcycles.This is because in a four stroke like yours,the oil not only lubricates the engine but the clutch & gearbox too.So a car type oil isn't the same & a motorcycle spacific oil is needed.
I hope that this helps

What type and weight of oil dose my bike take 2003 suzuki gsxr takes


Use any oil that is a JASO MA rated/certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Car oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you use Synthetic oils, they will help your motorcycle run cooler and shift easier. Suzuki sells an excellent 15w-50 full synthetic motorcycle oil that is reasonably priced.

What oil 10W-40 2 cycle or does it not matter


Your Kawasaki klx125 is a four stroke motor cycle. Do not use 2 stroke oil. Use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil . In this case use 10w-40. A synthetic oil has some benefits . Your bike will run cooler and shift easier. Do not use car oil or any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label. These oils will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears ( different additives ).

Is it ok to put car oil into a 4 cylinder motorcycle?


Follow the manufactures spec's for your bike! Depending on the bike, the oil used will lubricate the clutch and the transmission, as well as different parts of the engine. If the oil is lubricating the transmission you do not want to use a car oil because it will break down too fast. There are different blends as well. (Molly blends / non molly blends) That will impact the engines performance and the clutch performance and can ruin vital engine parts.
