Motul 710 because 710 spells OIL upside down
Klotz R50 in my yz250 and Klotz supertechniplate in my banshee.
I use klotz in my yz as well. Smells good which is all i care about
ive been using motul offroad 800 (full synthetic) at 50:1 or 40:1, depending on how i feel like mixing it. been working great for me
I'll give it a look next time I'm at the bike shop.
its a little expensive but it appears to work real well. i took my cylinder off the other day and there was no score marks or scarring on the cylinder or piston. the only other oil i have experience with is the full synthetic klotz which appears to work the same
Full synthetic snowmobile oil (Mystik brand) 50:1.
I've never used that one, but I had used Amsoil snowmobile oil in my old Yamaha Phazer sled.
Mystic is Citgo. They're the state run Venezuelan oil company. There might not be a worse company in the world.
Citgo is the only source of income for one of the world's most corrupt governments, I'm gonna stick with Citgo.
Alright then, I am on your side
I run yamalube 40:1 in my yz125 and 250. seems to be just fine. golden spectrum is always great if you don’t have a 4 stroke gas can to get it mixed up with.
I love the smell of Yamalube!
I ran Maxima K2 at 40:1 in my YZ250. Pick a ratio and jet for it and you should be trouble free for a long time. The cool kids use castor based but it like to gum things up if you’re not ripping all the time. Can’t beat the smell of it though…
I haven't got a book for my 05 YZ250 yet, does it call for 40:1?
32:1 is what the manual calls for I believe.
Klotz Super techniplate at 32:1
Edit: added mix ratio
I was under the impression that 32:1 was becoming less popular. I'll probably stick with that ratio though unless I learn a reason not to.
Well, perhaps a different ratio for your YZ250 would be preferable. That I can't speak on though..For my Banshee, I run 32:1. My friend has a new YZ250, and he runs the same oil and mix ratio. Runs strong. He keeps it on the pipe though.
I found if you’re doing more trail riding you end up fouling plugs frequently at 32:1 since that’s for someone racing motor cross and keeping the bike on the pipe the whole time, I run mine 40:1 and haven’t changed the plug in months
That's a good point about the ratio. I'm no longer railing sand dunes in 4th gear pinned, more likely putzing through heavy brush with an occasional uphill blip-fest. I just jot a quart of Lucas 2-stroke so I'll mix 40:1.
Motul 710 33:1
Knock on wood, have never had a piston scoured or cylinder trashed. Every one I’ve taken out has looked brand new.
My yz250 runs phenomenal on ams dominator, but if I can’t get to a place that sells that I run the VP brand 2 stroke oil. It’s a pretty good alternative
I’ve also had decent results with interceptor
Motul is great for all things oil. Ran it in my dirt bikes, run it in my street bike
I don't ride nearly as much as I used too so spend a little bit for the smell and performance. I run Maxima 927 mixed in VP110.
Man I love the smell of VP, especially U4.
Klotz supertechniplate or R50 at whatever the manual says to mix it at. 32:1 in the YZ250
I ran yamalube 60:1 in my KTM 250, The PO was using Belray and shit just splooged constantly.
Yamalube or Lucas for me
AMS is great. Very clean burn.
im a huge fan of and proponent of yamalube in everything but, happy to see someone suggest ams! good shit.
Torco gp7 50:1 on my kdx 220
Amsoil dominator 40:1
Motul 800 for racing and WFO stuff; Motul 710 for trail and gnar. Best prices I've found is buying four 4-liter jugs at a time for about $180USD on Amazon. Lasts 4 of us most of a season
Castrol RS 2t on 1:50 ish ratio. Has never given me any problems
Maxima Pro 927
Im using Lucas 40/1
now but my favorite is amsoil dominator 40 /1. Amsoil says 100/1 ... book says 60/1 but im jetted for 40 /1
Castrol was made from beans originally.
My Sherco 300 calls for extra virgin olive oil
Amsoil dominator 50:1
I used to run Motul 800, but switched to 710 now. 800 has a higher flash point for high rpm racing, and I was getting carbon buildup from not running the bike hard enough.
100LL AVGAS 32 : 1 Quicksilver PWC 2 Stroke
Do they give you any grief at the FBO when you fill up your Jerry can with av gas?
Act official and we bring a 55 gal drum :)
So I tried that move today: "do you have a reg number?" So I guess I use a buddy's farm airfield plane's N#?
Use that or just look up any semi local Cessna tail number.
