I have a Yamaha V-Max on my skeeter. What type of oil do i need to use? Is there special oil or what is recommended?

It should say on the data plate on your engine, or check your owners manual, or go to Yamaha's web site. I wouldn't rely on an internet chat room for this piece of information.

As they would say on Family Feud "Good answer" Though 98% of the time this site will not lead you astray still a good answer. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

If it's still in warranty I would run one of the 3 (Mercury, Johnson or Yamaha) oils (I guess, for that matter I would even if it wasn't under warranty, but that's me).

The minimum requirements are that it is TCW-3 rated at a minimum. Lots of people have had good luck with Amsoil injector oil as well.

It doesn't say on my yami engine, maybe I'm not looking at the right place.

Yamaha engines uses Yamaha oil brand, 2 strokes 2-M TCW-3, 4 strokes 4W.

I'm pretty sure Yamaha don't recommend just any TCW-3 oil in their engines - so they can keep their money...LOL's.
