    Can you Sub Yamalube oil safely if you replace cat convert with D-Plate?

    Hi All, I have replaced my cat converts in both my 1200 XLTs (2004s), been running fine for 2 years. Question, I've read you can opt out of the expensive Yamalube oil once you pull the cat. but I don't have any firm intell that explains why this is okay/safe for your engine, anyone able to provide some good technical info on the subject matter

    As far as I know, non-Yamalube oils are just fine for the engine. The only thing they are not good for is the factory cat. If you get rid of that with the d-plate... you're fine.

    Plenty of folks here running stuff from Amsoil, Motul, Klotz, etc with no engine mods besides a d-plate.

    Both of my skis run on Amsoil Interceptor. Although I have converted to premix. For your particular skis, I'd recommend doing the same thing. Maybe some more seasoned experts can chime in on that one though, just for insurance!

    Yes you can. Do a search on 2-stroke oils and you will pull up a ton of threads with info and comparisons.

    I have had great luck with AMSOIL hpi it is designed for injected 2 strokes and at $10 less a gallon I can afford to put 91 octane in the ski lol
