Yamalube is not bad but after the projected miles it looses very quickly its properties going something like a creamous texture. It was told to me by two PT R125 bikers, one is known in other R125 forum, called Mikas. I would totally recommend Motul 5100 as price/quality oil. I used castrol GPS 4T and it wasn't bad but not as good as motul.
Now I use 300V and 300V is overpowered to our bikes but gear changing now is smooth as butter.

Fresh I agree with Jorge the yamalube is bog standard so unless you told Yamaha to stick motul in or watched them id presume yours is using that too. Motul 5100 is quite well priced I bought a litre for £9.00 and I've just bought another 4 litres. Gear changes feel smoother now.

I used Yamalube for the first service change on the 13s R6 can't say I had any issues with it. I highly recommend Motul oils, the 2 stroke is expensive at £20/l but is top quality. Friction plates contaminate oil even more so if you have ones made from aluminium, I was changing oil every week on the CR but now I am running steel friction plates and doing change once a month.

@Vtwin that is 2stroke oil for girls. Try the VROOM a special one, I use it in competition for 50£/L, it takes me less 2/10th of second per lap!! In racing cars my father is using motul 300V for upper engine lubrification but I am not sure of it because it in cars since they use 2 different oil systems.
