Yamaha Scorpio Oil Change

Discussion in 'Maintenance and Servicing' started by error, Jul 9, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    The service manual recommended oil is SAE 20W40.. I have some castrol 4T 15w50.. would it be an issue if i use this oil or does it have to be Mineral 20w40 oil?

    Bike has done 18K.. also please recommend an oil filter.

  2. stick to factory specs for oil dude, they're recommended for a reason
  3. Thanks mate.. have to find a local yamaha dealer as they are not available in auto chains..
  4. Yes, I can't see the point in using filters other than the ones in Honda boxes, or the HiFlofiltro ones that Honda put in their boxes. It seems poor economy to scrimp a few bucks for a device that can have a crucial part to play in keeping your engine in good condition.

    Oils, on the other hand, are a Pandora's Box...
