How often does everyone change their oil and oil filter? Does anyone use synthetic? I've heard that synthetic is best, yet I've heard I shouldn't use it for the 450.

I use a synthetic blend from castrol, 4 stroke oil. I change every month. You should't use a full synthetic oil. As said it isn't good for your clutch.

You should just run Yamalube for the first couple of oil changes, or 10-20hrs, to get it broken in good. Then it is ok to switch to a Synthetic oil like Mobile 1 Red Cap.

I broke mine in with Yamalube and have been running Mobile 1 for almost 2 months now and it runs great even shifts a little better.
