Yamaha Star Venture V-Twin Oil Information

Here is a video from Redline Oil that explains oils. You can use this information for your preferred brand of oil as the videos information while a Redline video applies to other brands as well.

There is an explanation in this video about oil temperature and oil weight. This is a good explanation and explains why my Victory and this Yamaha Star Venture like the 10w-40 Redline oil I am running.

Our engines are oil/air cooled so the information about oil temperature and weight is very informative for our engines.

This may also explain why the heat management on my bike is working so well as engine heat has not been an issue for me in hot and muggy Southwest Florida, todays ride we saw temperatures on the onboard temperature display of 93 degrees yet engine heat was not an issue at all.
