    help: choosing the right shell oil ?

    Hi Guys this is my situation.

    I have to go for a shell lubricant/oil, our company has an extremely large account with shell, so i have to use their products. Price means nothing as I wont be paying for it, itll be an incentive (free gift) from shell.

    My currect setup:
    2003 GP1300R efi
    Power valves
    D-Plate (Removed Cat)

    these are my options:

    Shell Nautilus Marine Premium Outboard Oil (non synthetic)
    2Stroke: TC-W3 outboard Oil
    Mineral

    Shell Advance Racing X
    2 stroke: extremely high performance racing oil
    fully synthetic, NO castor oil

    Shell Advance ultra 2
    2 stroke: ultimate performance motocycle oil
    fully sythetic


    Ive attached the product info to this, Please let me know what you would use and why.

    Should i run the Shell Advance Racing X to get rid of all the nasty residues of crap oil and then move to Shell Advance ultra 2 or should i stick with one or .... ?


    Thanks for the advise.

    ADVANCE RACING X
    Extremely high performance two-stroke racing oil.

    Advance Racing X is a unique, fully synthetic oil for use where the highest levels of protection are required under the most extreme motorcycle racing conditions. It does not contain castor oil.

    Applications
    • Recommended for world championship competition engines in Grand Prix, motorcross, road racing, kart and other 2-stroke motorcycle racing engines.

    Performance Features• Exception ‘anti-scuffing’ properties: Protects engines from scuffing and seizure even under the most severe racing conditions.
    • Engine Cleanliness: Detergent / dispersant additives control engine deposits and maintain an excellent standard of engine cleanliness.
    • Excellent throttle response: Superb lubrication and low friction provide this essential quality for racing engines.

    To me there is no decision to be made. The only one that is rated for watercraft is the outboard oil.
