It seems like anything with the letters "atv" on it is priced higher. If you have your manual it probably tells you to use the Yamaha lube or a equivalent. At least that is similar to what my Honda manual says but with a Honda GN4 oil. I use Valvoline 10w-40 rated (I think SF and/or SG) There are other main stream motor oil companies that offer atv oil. Just make sure that it is rated the same as the Yamaha lube. I buy my atv oil at a local auto parts store.
