I am getting close on mileage to change my oil and I am having a hard time finding the Yamalube Semi-Syn SAE 20W-50.  Does anyone have a recommendation for a replacement?  Thank you.   8) :thumbs:

Oil conversations are like tire conversations! You ask 10 different people and you'll get 15 different answers. That being said, I've ran nothing but Royal Purple since it was new. and am still getting excellent results from the testing lab.

I have the kit shipped to me. It's about $70. Oil, filter, and new crush washers

I just changed my oil in a 2014 deluxe at 40K with Mobil 1.  Sounds like a different motor. Nice and quiet. I'll be using Mobil 1 20w 50 for now on.

Is the Mobil 1 Full Synthetic?

Is the Mobil 1 Full Synthetic?

All Mobil 1 oils are full synthetic.  Link to their chart is attached.
