I have a 2005 330 Outlander and I lost the manual I bought. Simple question what grade of oil is recommended for my bike?

I have a stock 800 bottome end with over 81,000 miles. Last time I had the crank out it measured less than .0002" of wear on all bearing journals.

I have run every type and brand of oil known to man, and  I have even mixed dead dinosaurs with semi-synthetics and full synthetics, I have topped my crankcase off with what ever oil I had on my shelf at the moment.

 

Oil brand and type means nothing. Period.

 

Use a quality oil and keep it clean.

Change it often and replace oil filter with new every time.

 

Your bike is not a submarine, keep it out of the water.

 

I run Shell Rotella T-5 15w-40 because it's 15 bucks a gallon at Walmart.

 

The people that say they run the "best" oil because someone said it's the "best" are full of kaka.

They drank the Cool Aid.
