i have a 2003 yzf250, whats the best oil????
What I am doing now is using a Scotts SS filter (Stainless Steel) because it is a good filter and will save me $ in the long run. This is how my oil change routine goes. I am now using Mobil-1 4-stroke racing oil, don't have much test time so I will report on it when I have used it for a bit. But I would change around 10 hrs and if using the paper filter change every other oil change, so at 20 hrs. Every time I would take mine out it was still really clean. Some people change every 3rd oil change btw. Trans I will change every 20 hrs, the clutch oil doesn't get that dirty and the oil doesn't ever get hot or change color (Due to no carbon from the combustion chamber) But still keep an eye on stuff to make sure everything is doing a-ok. And yes clean the strainer and check the magnet! Clean also if necessary.when should i change the oil? after read weekend at the dezert? or at less every 1-3 trips? also when i change the oil should i clean the oil filter or replace it? and clean the oil strainer right?
