Re: Oil for XP?

any oil as long as you change it regularly will work....in hotter climates use a thicker viscosity.....in colder climates use a lower viscosity.....synthetics will extend your service intervals....but I wouldnt go more than 25-30 hrs if you ride hard.

X2. Choose correct viscosity and change oil and filter often. Millions of miles have been driven on every brand of oil. Keeping it clean is the key.
