    Btw how's your's Yamaha after-sales service, here Yamaha Service station has stopped owners to look at their motorcycles while they're serving plus regarding quality of parts, they have degraded. I have changed headlight bolts twice. (Yamaha service guys claim they changed because of vibrations in headlight assembly).
    The bike has completed exactly 1600 kms with the YAMALUBE GP Racing oil
    As per my experience the oil is performing good than the shitty yamalube sporty oil which is meant for the R15.
    The gear shifts are smooth & there is no sign of heating even after the ride in the heavy traffic conditions or after a long ride on highways.
    Checked the oil level yesterday its just fine and can easily lasts for other 1500 kms for sure.
    Regarding the engine noise as i said in my previous posts there is no solution with this oil the noise is just reduced a bit thats it, There is no major difference.
    Whats your bike odo? And do you also face noise from the engine? What did the yama svc people told regarding the noise?
    Next oil change will be with the motul 7100.

    Good to hear and know about that Yamalube GP Racing Oil . I hope, to use it on next oil change.

    Btw I never had problems with Yamalube Sporty Premium engine oil, just didn't liked its viscosity than other 10w40 oils. Is good for normal commuting but don't worked well for me in heavy traffic and hot weather of Gujarat.

    Regarding noise I agree with you, it won't go away, I myself use 10w50 (Elf Moto 4 Tech & Castrol Power1 Racing) grade to reduce noise. Current odo is almost 10k kms. SVC used to either adjust tappet or would give excuses like noise & engine heating will there because of their aluminuim engine parts.

    Part 2 is good, eagerly waiting for 3 and 4. How do you manage most DIYs while in an apartment? I keep running up and down if I forget something

    nothing worse bro.. everyone here has some issue or the other in their fz.. and most of those issues are due to the shitty oil yamaha is using.. when the engine is cool.. it is smooth.. with less vibes.. better gear shifts.. quick self starts

    if it weren't for the warranty.. i would've switched to Motul by now.. hell i would've given up on the warranty if i were confident enough on yamaha

    i have tried both the mineral and synthetic oil from yamaha and both are equally worse.. the synthetic oil was doing okay till like 500kms when I did a stressful ride with a pillion of around 70kms.. and since then it has lost its viscosity permanently..

    Even the Version 3 also has this noise issue.
    Its purely the design fault from the yamaha.
    How is the performance with the castrol power 1 racing??

    What you can do is skip oil change at service without letting Yamaha svc to know. That way you won't loose warranty.

    If you still want to maintain warranty or have fear regarding other grade oil then you could opt for similar grade oil like Yamalube then try Idemitsu Fully synthetic 10w40 (OEM for Suzuki & Honda motorcycles) have heard from my friends it works equal to Motul. Have no personal experience in my motorcycle but have good experience with their oil in my car (is OEM oil for Honda & Toyota cars).

    FZ v3 is basically V2.0 with facelift or new panels in imo.
    Most owners won't agree with me so I apologise.
    Yamaha engineers have done nothing new in engine department (Engine is same), except for bit tuning and exhaust sound, that's why is having noise & heating issue like v2.

    I used Castrol Power Racing when odo clocked 5k+ kms, shifting from Yamalube Sporty Premium. Engine felt quite better, but not equal like Elf oil. Heating management and shifting were better than Yamalube. Did Drain running after 4kms. Could had stretched to 4.5kms but always safer to change oil at 4k.

    (Btw If you're or anyone is planning to use Castrol oil then buy from Official dealers or Castrol bike zone. Else you may end with fake bottle.)
