I am servicing my quad and I was wondering what type of oil you use..? Do you use semi-synthetic.. Or full synthetic..
What brand do you use?

Here's another vote for the Mobil 1 15W-50 "Red Cap".

I used Yamalube until I found out about Royal Puple. Full Synthetic. Shifts smoother! But expensive!

I just started using Maxima ATV Premium 4T. Seems to be a pretty good oil so far.

I'm gonna be putting Amsoil 0W-40 in this winter after I get my oil leak fixed. It's supposed to be a good 4 stroker oil for all temp ranges. :tup:

Amsoil is the best but you can get Mobil red cap and Bosch filters at Walmart :tup:

the amzoil is debatable.

on my sportbike forum there has been an interesting amount of camshaft pitting, and 99.9% of the camshafts that are pitted have had nothing but amzoil in the crankcase.

i also dont trust ANY company that says you can take a 2 stroke machine that was designed to run at a 32:1 ratio and run amzoil at 100:1 with no sacrifice in durability. :scared:

I'll defer to your additional knowledge although I had previously never heard of a problem with any Amsoil product. If anything is going to find a weak link though, a 15K+ rpm sport bike will.
