Who makes Yamalube for Yamaha?

Does anyone know who makes yamalube for yamaha? I know they dont have their own refinery. I am wondering why I am paying 7.99$ a quart for it when i see valvoline 10w40 ATV oil at autozone for 3.99$ a quart? I know it cant be twice as good......... I know this topic has been beat to death, but really what is the added value for using yamalube vs the Valvoline?

Supposedly its made by Citco. I've been running Honda HP4 oil cause I'm getting a deal on it which is made by Mobile. Theres really no added value. Just change your oil/filter frequently.

Thanks for the answers, thats kind of what i thought, but I wanted verification. I simply refuse to use synthetic for mudding applications, like you said mudhunter, I agree change frequency is the the key especially for mudding applications. I change my oil when I smell a strong gas smell in the oil, regardless of hours or milage(very few know to smell thier oil).

Tex, you should be able to find it at one of your local auto parts stores wherever they have the motorcycle oil, etc. JASO/MA is a wet clutch safe oil and is what you want to run. Regular car oil (API) is not good for your clutch.

I believe that Yamalube is made by imperial oils/Esso.

I have used Amsoil 0W-40 Synthetic atv oil in my 02 Grizz for 4 yrs. and it works great. I pay the same for it as most do for Yamalube at my local Yamaha dealer. It keeps my Grizz running cooler in the summer and starts and runs better in winter.

I know it's not the same as auto makers who manufacture their own oil... but I'd rather pay the extra for yamalube, and know for a fact that I'm running the right oil. They have their own oil for a reason, and I'm betting it's not to make money off of it.

X2, but ive only started using it for 3 months or so. Noticed the same thing, and even as much as the grizz being easier to shift, im completely sold on amsoil.

I've been running 15w 40 shell rotella in many atv's and motorcycles never a problem! My 2000 yamaha R1 I sold it with 66,000 miles on 5w 40 shell rotella synthetic still had the origanal clutch with 0 problems! I am running shell 5w 40 synthetic in my 700 grizzly for 2 years with 0 problems.
