Do you mean transmission oil? If you do, then don't use and synthetics, because that will probally cause clutch slippage.

Just use some gear oil, yamalube will work fine.


Oh, and if you meant pre-mix oil get some fully synethic Amsoil.

this is what i want to use. i dosent say anything about friction modifiers on the back. on the back theres a circle and it says 10w 30 in the middle and around it it says energy conserving. <<is that bad???



i agree sam, yamalube leaves all kinds of remains on the top of your piston. mine was a mess. now i run castor 927 for premix.

thanks for your help

How can Yamalube gear oil leave shit on your piston? He is asking about tranny oil, not premix oil. I ran Yamalube gear oil in my old blaster and it shifted so smooth and ran great all the time
