oil brands

Question

Ryan_V

I put this in the ATV forum, but thought I'd try it here as well. It's time to put winter oil in my 4-wheeler. I've used yamalube since it was new. in the winter, I run 5w-30. would it make a difference to my wheeler if I went with "regular" oil such as quaker state...etc??? just wondering if the yamaha brand oil is better for the machines or not. thanks to you guys who know!!

I don't know about yamalube being better but I wouldn't put quakerstate or Penzoil in my push mower.

I preffer Mobil 1 or Amsoil myself. To sum it up, for 20 years I was in the Navy we put ONLY synthetic oil in Gas turbine engines that run at over 10,000 rpms and 1200 plus degrees. Regular oil would never work in those and if synthetic is good enough for them its good enough for all my slower speed lower temp piston engines.

I have a Polaris, thus run their synthetic 0W-40 year round. Seems to be a great oil, I change it yearly.

Perhaps Yamaha has as similar synthetic? As has been mentioned, Amsoil makes great stuff too. I run that in my sleds, outboard, and truck differetials.

I run Mobil 1 in alot of my stuff and have no problems with it.I use it in my wheeler for winter to help with cold weather starting.I dont know if your machine is out of warranty,but I would make sure you dont run into a warranty issue if it still has one.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.
