Charlie in Queensland
I have a 2007 V Star 1100 with 16,000 kms on the clock. I have had it regularly serviced by Yamaha dealers and was surprised to learn that they didn't use Yamalube oil when servicing my bike (Shell oil on my invoice). I recently serviced my bike for a long (6,000kms) trip and insisted on Yamalube engine oil. After around 5,000 kms, I began to notice the gearchange becoming harsher/raspy and more clunky in all gears, not just going into first. The only difference this time was the use of Yamalube engine/trans oil. Could it be that Yamalube begins to break down earlier than other brands?Read All Reviews
When it comes to raw mechanical prowess, your dirt bike’s engine is its most vital component. It supplies the power to allow your bike to do what it does best: tear up the track and cruise through trails. Give it the proper care by using engine oil you can trust to do a good job. Here at Rocky Mountain ATV/MC, we’ve collected excellent motor oil options from quality brands, including Bel-Ray, Motul, Maxima and many others. And since we have so many choices, it’s completely up to you to pick your preference. We have a vast selection of oil options for both 4-stroke and 2-stroke engines. All you need to do is choose which one you’re looking for.
As important as engine oil is, it really is only one type of oil. And your bike needs several. On this page, you’ll find links to categories for other essential types of oil. Fork oil effectively lubricates your dirt bike’s forks and minimizes stiction as you ride. Transmission oil bathes your bike’s transmission system in fluid, allowing you to shift gears smoothly. Shock fluid is used in your bike’s suspension system to manage the shocks’ damping and help you maintain control of the bike.
Regardless of the type of oil you need, you’ll find it here at Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. (Don’t forget that we have a separate page for other fluids and chemicals for your dirt bike.) We believe in offering the right products at the right prices in a system that is easy to navigate. Click on one of these oil category pages now to see what we have to offer.
