Where is the cheapest place to get yamaha oil

Hi Guys,

Wheres the cheapest place to get yamalube tcw3 oil?

I bought 2x5 L Oil for 25 each... Im sure I paid 20 previously.

I am happy to buy it in bulk... depending on how long it will last?

Thanks

Ben

And why does it have to be Yamaha oil? I didn't think they had their own wells.........

Try Rock Oil - it's great stuff and quite a good price too - especially in 25L drums!!!

Im pretty sure the yamaha warranty states that you have to use the yamaha oil during the warranty period

Im sure they can't but... I blew a conrod last year, and the first thing Yamaha asked the agents to look for was issues with the oiling... so ideally I want to keep using the right oil incase something happens again

In Europe they shouldn't be speccing their own brand only - I am sure somewhere it willl say a TCW3 spec oil.
