2001 warrior, what type of oil?

Hey guys I got a 2001 yamaha warrior, I changed the oil once already and my dealer told me to use there yamalube I forget what weight. But my question is they are such a rip off price. About $30 bucks everytime I change oil? Anyway what brands of oil/weight do you people use can i just go to like napa and get a certain type, Do i have to use Yamalube? Please let me know.....and also how often should I change oil?

i don't know a lot about it but my manual for 2002 warrior just says 10w-30 (or 20w-40 for high temps etc.) it never says you have to use a certain type of oil.

Yes, I'm betting it's 10W-30. Most ATV's take 10W-30. You should be able to go down to Walmart and get the right stuff.

get motorcycle oil try to stay away from the automotive oil, motorcycle oil contains the right amounts of zinc and other minerals, keeping your clutch form slipping, (wet clutch) I have heard Mobile1 is the best stuff out there

I use Spectro 4 motorcycle oil 10w 40, works great, and no problems
