So im a green horn when it comes to dirt bikes so this might be a stupid question but can you use penrite mc4st 10w-30 semi synthetic oil in a 2007 special edishion yz250f dirt bike or 10w-40 full synthetic oil

To answer your question...I don't know. I've never heard of this Penrite, and frankly, it sounds made up.

Yamalube can be bought in virtually every Yamaha dealership, and at roughly two jillion on line retailers.

He’s probably referring to the white and red(?) version Yamaha had.

Thanks for the info. Then it sounds like he can use it.

It depends on the color of the power band you use. Some power bands just don't work well with synthetic oil.

Just don't use Motorex as it is spec'd for KTM.

I know what special edition means. I was just suspicious that he would mention that he has different colored plastics on a question about oil

I was thinking with him being so new he probably didn’t know plastic color was the only difference between the special edish and the regular. That’s the only thing I can think of

Hey buddy, yeah either of those oils would work. Most modern bikes call for 10w-40 and fully synthetic is totally fine. The key to these bikes are frequent oil changes because they hold a relatively small amount of oil and it gets punished in these high reving four strokes. Welcome to the moto community not everyone are the “cool guy douches” you may have ran into

Whatever is jaso ma2, I buy it at the local auto parts shop since I change oil every other week and if you ship it they only ship by ground. Just look for motorcycle oil at your local auto parts even Walmart has full synthetic jaso ma2

Full synthetic oil makes clutches slip. Just get a motorcycle specific 10w40 and don't worry about it.

Rotella. Can't believe no one's suggested it already! Everyone knows all the factory rigs dump out the OEM oil under cover of darkness and replace it with Rotella. Fact.

OP appears to be in Australia, so Rotella will be known as Shell rimula down there. OP I personally use 15w40 full synthetic in my 2016 450 SX-F, it's been a great oil and it's very cheap. For you, the equivalent appears to be Rimula R4, maybe give that a try. (I can't tell if it's synthetic so maybe not tan exact equivalent)

A lot of you muppets might want to learn how to help new users, rather than try and clown on them.

If it can't be fixed with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.

Specifically the red power bands can be used with full synthetic, but make sure to NOT use the yellow power bands with synthetic, as it will cause the left threaded discombobulator relay to come unwound and potentially seize the flux capacitor on the ATAC valve.

Fact you say? Prove it, that is a load of metric BS.

Also Squirelly, that is a giant myth....Motul, Motorex, Bel Ray, Castrol, Klotz, etc. must all make your clutch slip. PS : They all make full synthetic oils that are good for wet clutches.
