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.

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?
