I havnt seen it mentioned in this thread but if you look on the back of an oil bottle if it says its JASO MA certified then that means its safe for wet clutches.  There are MA1, MA2 and plain old MA.  Any of those will work fine but the higher the number the better it is for the wet clutch (MA2 is better than MA1, MA1 is better than MA and so on).  There is also a JASO MB which is not really as good for the wet clutches and should be avoided unless its an emergency/ get it home type thing
I can imagine a world completely at peace.  A world where there are no weapons, no war, and no violence at all.  And I can imagine us taking over that world because they would never expect it.

What oil would have the JASO MA 2 certification?

I believe the whole bel-ray line of oils has the JASO MA2 certification. Be aware that many oil companies will claim they have the certification, but the actual JASO symbol on the back of the bottle will not be there. Meaning they are claiming the oil meets the JASO criteria for wet clutch performance, but they have never had the product tested/vertified by JASO.

Castrol 10 40 in the engine with a K&N Filter. Valvoline synthetic on the gears.  When you change the oil be advised that the funnel and hose they give you will not fit in the fill hole.  Also make sure you clean around the fill real good to avoid knocking dirt and mud into the crankcase.

If you cut the end of the hose on an angle, it slides into the hole without issue.  A little slow filling, but at least it is sealed and keeps the dirt out.

I did find 15/40, but it was listed for Diesels.  I used this in the engine and the Valvoline synthetic in the diffs.

Just an FYI, there is a Q&A there that asks about the use in a motorcycle and the rep says it isn't designed for use in that type of vehicle. Probably be fine but thought that was interesting.

I believe the manual calls for a 10/50 but I went with a 10/40 on my first oil change. I may go synthetic on the next one but not until I get well over 500 miles. I did use a 80/90w synthetic in the rear gear case. Used Valvoline.

Si yo uso 10w 40 Castrol es excelente para motos. Con respecto al 80w 90 valvoline fiajte que te pide que sea GL4 para que no ataque al bronce. El GL5 ataca el bronce por ejemplo el autoblocante .

Hi Everyone!!!
First I changed the oil at 0km and I put the Castrol Power 1 4T  15w50 semi synthetic.




Then I changed the oil again at 750km and I changed the brand and I put Motul 5100 4T 15w50 semi synthetic.  All of both for wet cluth.

I run the Lucas 15w-40 Magnum W/ Zinc. I was onsidering Rotella T6 or Royal Purple 15w-40 but went with the lucas instead. I run Lucas in both of my race cars my 68 Mustang and my truck. Always killer quality and I get a killer deal on it at work. 21.99 for a gallon of the 15w-40 Magnum Synthetic.

Rotella usually has a rebate in the spring. Makes it a pretty good deal especially if you get it at Walmart.

I just rolled 600 miles on my buggy.  I have now switched to Amsoil 10w40 syn motorcycle oil.  I put amsoil 75w90 syn in front and rear diff.  So far I have not had any problems and in seems to quiet things down quite a bit.  It really made a difference using it in the diff's.  They rear does not get as hot and it seems a bit quieter.  It is not cheap as here in Wisconsin this oil is $12.45 a quart.  So far, I will continue to use.  I am happy with the results I have seen thus far.  I was using the the shell rotella 15/40 which is my other favorite.  The only reason I switched is because I wanted better protection on the engine as I don't trust this machine yet with all the problems I have had.  I want to "protect" my investment.  Protect in long enough so I can get rid of it next year and buy proven brands.

Lucas Oil is the the supporter, supplier and manufacturer of CF Moto oil here in Canada. I would certainly think that this would also carry through to the US supply of CFMOTO oil also!

I'm going to go ahead and put an apology out there if this was mentioned already, I tried to do a quick read through of the threads.  But as far as the K&N Oil filter goes (KN-152), have you guys had good luck with those or are you sticking with the factory filter?  Before it gets too cold, going to make the switch to what NMK suggested earlier with the RS Power 4T synthetic or Castrol Power 1 10W-40.

For me its only Rotella T6.
3500km the foot to the floor.

If the Rotella was fine in my street racer for the last 45,000 km on an engine that run 16,500rpm it is certainly perfect on my ZForce...
