Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
What type of oil should I use on my 2004 Yamaha v-star classic 650
First of all, I want to compliment you on your bike! That V-Star is in so many ways, one of the best all around bikes....Very durable engines, user friendly, comfortable and DEPENDABLE, not to mention one the best value to dollar ratio on the market, right along next to the Suzuki Boulevard....Not to get off subject but I enjoy these bikes thoroughly!
You want to make SURE that the only oil you use is a quality oil, which will have THE seal of approval stamp on the bottle that says that it meets the requirements of all the major motor corporations you want to make ABSOLUTELY sure that the ONLY oil that goes in that bike's crank case and gear box is specifically intended for use with a "MULTI-PLATE WET CLUTCH" system.....Otherwise a very bad day can be predicted. "Champion Oil" is a reputable brand and preferred thier 2-stroke raceing oil over all else when I raced 250cc class arena-cross. I have since retired from dirt bike racing to take up a much safer and peaceful profession in law enforcement....But I know Champion makes 4-stroke case oil thats compatible with wet clutches....Yama-Lube is ok too...Just make sure you see "Wet Clutch" on the bottle and it's all a matter of consistenly works best for you and preference after that.
