    GP1200 XL new owner which oil, and gas additive to use advice please.

    Just purchased a Yamaha XL1200 1999. The mechanic I purchased it from says to run Yamalube and ring free. My Yamaha dealer said " They have not carried ring free for over two years, and no one ever uses or request it " Is there a alternative? Also is there a good alternative to Yamalube as with tax it's 33 a gallon here?

    Any advice would be great )

    No such thing as a GP1200XL. Its either a GP1200 or an XL1200.
    Good alternative to Yamalube is Amsoil. 2 stroke oil is expensive, get use to it.

    Ooops It's a XL1200 Limited. I went to Advance auto and they have Pennzoil Marine wonder if that would work. I could not find Amsoil.
