There is an alternative to this that is available in the USA (and Canada) which is available but I do not want to hijack this thread on RMCsnowbikes. PM me for more info if you wish.:juggle:

Yamalube is great product but very expensive. That's not the alternative I had in mind. :face-icon-small-win

I had found, and have been using Mystic 0w40 snowmobile oil that is JASO MA/MA2-good for clutches, in my clutch-side transmission sump since last season.

I use M1 0W40 European Forumla in my engine side.

All are reasonable choices--I can get yamalube cheaper here than amsoil.

And where ever you go all you need is to stop by the yamaha dealer to get it.

For the 4 - 5 litres i need per year not rely much of a factor

My oil stays pretty clean so I change it every 4 - 5 rides

I am off going riding

I hear you, I have a dealer account with Amsoil and get it 40% off, so that makes it the best choice for me. Anyone can apply... might be worth trying to get an account if you have an EIN.
