    Quick oil question

    I've tried the search feature, but haven't gotten a definite answer,

    Can I run Amsoil Interceptor on a stock GP1300R, Will it mess up the catalytic converter? The yamaha dealer is closed and I need to pick up some oil for tomorrow, trying to find an alternative oil.

    Good question.
    I went ahead and ran out most all of the yamalube I had in my stock 1300 and put the amsoil in. I am in the process NOW of removing the cat con and going with the d-plate so I figured a few hours @ the most on the cat with amsoil would lot hurt anything.
    I would think if you plan on removing the cat con soon, then go for it. If you are planing on leaving it in, well, hopefully someone who knows will answer.

    It is compatible with most mineral and synthetic two-cycle oils, however, for best performance, mixing oils should be minimized.
    You'll be fine.

    At some point in time, I would install a D-plate

    Is Amsoil only available online? if so, is there any oil that I can pick up locally (at say a walmart or a west marine) that I can run for the day until I can pick up some yamalube?

    You can run the AMSOIL HP Injector Oil with the Cat in the Yamaha. http://www.amsoil.com/storefront/hpi.aspx?zo=367509 You will not be able to find AMSOIL in the bix box stores.
