    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    A long event would be about 600 Km with maybe half on competitive stages where the turbo is really working and the rest on open roads, or transits. Usually would be maybe 200 Km.

    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    When I was rallying, I only used quality dino oil (20W50) in my race engine. I figured that if I needed to add during an event, compatible oil was easily accessible and was not concerned about oil life as the oil was only in the engine for 1 event. The oil and filter were changed after every event and the oil coming out looked nice and clean.

    Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil

    I understood that the 30W oil in the triples was due to the hydraulic action of the timing chain tensioner working better with the heavier oil. I don't know how or what is different between the triple and the four holer, but they have always recommended the 0w30 for the triple so I have stuck with that rating. BTW, thanks to this thread and the OP, I picked up 3 jugs of Mobil 1 (0W30) yesterday.

    X2! It is also a chance to look for things that are starting to go wrong before they get worse.

    Actually, Yamaha sells 0W30 semi syn and recommends it for the three cylinders and also 0W40 Full syn for the Apex. I have always stuck with the 0W30, but have used Mobil1 as well as the Yamalube.

    End of season prognosis

    Since my name was dropped, I'll reply. I have the Ice Ripper XT, 1.25 inch, on my 2012 (20100 Km) , and the Ice Attak, 1.22 inch, on my 2015 (26345 Km). Both tracks were installed when I purchased the machines and are still in great shape.

    Looks like a great trip, Denis. I wish it wasn't such a long drive, or I'd be up to join you.

    The Kap river can be a long cross if the ice is questionable. I sure wouldn't be there, just sayin',
