    Which 2-stroke oil to run?

    which oil is good to run in my triple piped 1200 gpr? i have always used yamalube until i stripped the motor down and am almost ready to run with my rebuilt motor and pipes but am unsure which oil is best, does it have to be twc-3 marine or can it be an automotive oil? i know many people will say buy amsoil but i live in australia and dont want to pay postage to import it, i was thinking of using a synthetic motorcycle oil ?

    Any 2 stroke oil that meets ISO/JASO standards. Do NOT use automotive oil. I wouldn't use TCW3 either. It is meant for outboards.

    oil is all personal preference i personally don't mind spending more oh good oil because most of my skis are power valve skis and in my opinion yamalube and the like dont do so hot with power valves i run amsoil dominator in all five of my skis and haven't had a problem however oil conversations are a HUGE debate on these forums it seems like everyone has a different opinion so run what ever makes you happy

    Yes, clear as day, marked on the bottle. What you use in your dirt bike should be fine, as long as you are premixing. A lot of those "dirt bike" oils are not meant for oil injection.

    Is the D-Plate out? Can you give me a list of the Castrol and Mobil 2-stroke oils you can get there?
