2 Stroke Oil

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by mekros, Mar 3, 2005.

  1. Greetings all,



    I'm about to purchase a Honda NSR150SP as a little commuter, and I'm wondering if there is a specific type oftwo stroke oil that is recommended, or if different brands even make a difference.

    Thanks,
    Mek

  2. My scooter is a 2-stroke and I tend to use Castrol. Tried others and sometimes different brand feels "sluggish".

  3. Definately use something hi qual like Motul, never use premix at your servo.

  4. I'm with Scooter.. I always use Motul 600 which is a fully synthetic oil suitable for injected systems. It isnt cheap costs about $26 per litre or $80 for 4 litres but it will save you in the long run.

  5. For a liquid cooled semi performance 2 stroke like an NSR150 (or a RGV250 or a RS250) I'd always use a quality 2 stroke synthetic motorcycle oil designed for liquid cooled motorbikes.

    For an earlier type motor like a DT175 which is air cooled cheaper semi synthetic is fine.

    Don't use chain saw/mower oil in bikes ever either.

    Never... ever... ever... use the pre mix in a barrel from a servo. Almost all bikes these days have oil injection pumps anyway.

  6. Don't but an NSR150 they can be unreliable, go for a 250 instead, much much better :)
