hehe Yamaha 350 Warrior Oil

I'm just bout to rebuild my 96 warrior's top end. This inculudes all the gaskets but not replacing the piston. I am also putting in a aftermarket clutch kit and already need to replace my oil. I was wondering what is the best oil to put in that will have a long life and be best for the engine. Include the weight.

This topic usually starts a good argument, but to answer your question I like to use Shell Rotella T.

you think oil starts arguements here?!? you should visit a snowmobile forum!!! 2 stroke oil arguments can last all winter!! hahaha i used some "thumper" stuff, its semi synthetic... it is what my dealer said was "the good stuff".... youll probably wanna just use some god ol' fashioned dino oil for the ~2hr break in tho since its just coming right back out.... i used the $10 a gallon stuff from walmart... then put "good stuff" in

Bomber315,
I use Amsoil in all my quads. I use 20w50 motorcycle oil, in my 92 Warrior. Started with it from the first oil change when the quad was new in 92. No problems of any kind. Did a big bore kit about 4 years ago. Everything on the top end looked great- even the cam.

is amsoil fully synthetic? whats the price per gallon of that stuff? i recently have realized that my friend who works for a different dealer than "my dealer" can pump me some right out of the drum they have... all i have to do is supply the jug and pay cost... which im not sure how much of a deal it will really be since i buy all of my parts at cost from the neighborhood dealer as it is...

im really trying not to get into this conversation tho because i have seen where they can go... IMO as long as it is oil it is good..... he!! i run walmart brand 2 stroke oil in my 84 Vmax 540 sled.... it is a little sooty but its only like $10-15 a gallon... i used about 3 gallons last winter with no plug fouling issues at all... that of course is a sled and it doesnt have a wet clutch...

I agree.. 15W 40

The diesel oils contain many of the elements that make your engine last longer.

Any oil formulated for Motorcycles or atv's is good too.

Bomber315 it is fully synthetic, and it has excelent shear proportys, and also formulated for Wet Clutch systems. Around here I pay 8.00 per quart. I only change it once or twice per season. All depends on how much I get to ride. A good season for me is some where between 80 and 90 hrs of actual ride time, and I'll change it twice. The first in the spring and the 2nd in the middle. Some people think I'm crazy but it has worked just fine for me for a long time.
I'm sorry guys, I apologize up front but I don't like to use Rotella in anything that revs past 4500 RPM because it tends to aireate (foam). Diesels by design run low RPM's, and they don't run as hot either. They do run higher frictional loads yes but the other two factors cancel this out. I checked out the Shell oil Forum, and they admit to never testing the organic or synthetic versions in motorcycles. I know allot of guys use it and swear buy it, but it's not really formulated for ATV's or motorcycles buy Shell's own admission.
As a gear head, I'm blessed to have a job in the Automotive prototype engine development Field. I get to see all kinds of weird one off designs, as well as lube test results. Rotella is absolutely great for Diesels, but I wouldn't recommend it in a high RPM high heat application.
Bomber, your right this is probably gonna piss off some of these guys. Again I apologize.
I'll say no more on this subjuct. So if you guys feel the need to blast me---I'll understand.

Just went to the Shell web site. Looks like they just recently tested for the Jaso standard. Couldn't find any testing results though.

Ya I know I said I wasn't going to say anymore on this subject, but I have to. I don't want you guys to think I'm just spewing B.S.

I've seen the Blue marble 2 stroke oil but I've never seen 4 stroke. I know they make something called rev it up or something like that but I think it's an additive. I've never used there products cause there not real prevalent around here, but what little I've heard has always been positive.
