You can't go wrong with yamalube, it's not worth it to buy more expensive oil, and it is not worth it to buy cheaper oil

I have always used valvoline atv or motorcycle oil with excellent results on all my machines
Make sure the oil meets JASO MA requirements. Rotella T6 5W40 is good bang for the $ product.
ok I will stick with yamalube

I know the dealers are to high. Where is the best place to order a Oil Changing Kit?
Try Amazon, you can everything there for a good price!

Yamalube only in the green machine! And like Jdawg said, Amazon
Every Yamaha I've ever owned has run Yamalube so that's what going to use but I will try and get in on Amazon by the case if possible!
Yamalube is all i'll use. I put Honda oil in mine for a short bit and my wet clutch a slipping like an SOB. Call me crazy but it was
I use the valvoline 10/40 atv also it little cheaper than yamalube easier to get my hands on in emergencies
