This is a somewhat open Question/debate. It depends on what country you are in, what products are readly available to you, what your local climate is like. These things all affect which oil I would in any of my bikes.

It's safe to say that genuine Yamaha oil would be the safe sugestion.
Otherwise I would consult your owners manual as to the desired weight of oil for the season/temperature your in & substitute this with any leading brand of full synthetic MOTORCYCLE oil.

This is to say that car type oils are not designed spacifically for wet clutches & transmission lubrication which are major perameters when it comes to bike oils. This is also not to say that some high quality car oils would not work fine.

This is why I stick to motorcycle spacific oils/lubricants.

Leading brands that I have used are Bel-ray,motul,syn-lube,motorex,castrol,silkoline

Hope this helps Regards
Andrew

2008 yamaha r6 white smoke out of exhaust and when i cut the bike off it will not start again


Sounds like it overheated. White smoke can be oil but, with it not starting sounds like coolant and it overheated. Take it to a repair facility for confirmation.

Take your bike, your keys and your title to the dealer and let them unlock your bike. The immobilizer is there to keep people from stealing your bike. I don't think I have heard of a time when they accidently messed up.

How much oil is supposed to be in the bike, and If I dropped it yesterday would it explain why the coolant reservoir is empty, or is it supposed to be empty


reservoir should have something in it ...it doesnt have to be full. a 1/4 tank of coolant will do. the bike should always be measured in the upright position, if you have sight glass, only fill it up 3/4 way, never full, its bad for the engine to have too much oil and once you go past the sight gauge you really dont know how much extra you put in it. usually 3 qts does it for almost all bikes w/filter it may take a 1/4 bottle more.just start at 2 and 1/2 run motor for a minute to let oil get into filter then finish filling up to the 3/4 mark. can i get a very helpful responce thanks man.
