    2 stroke oil

    Hi all

    Great forum learnt alot about my ski and modded already.
    Some of the mods are simple like the sponson stepping and grip change.

    Anyway back here in the UK oil is getting expensive (like everywere).

    We have a oil refiner near to us which mixes our oil for the superjet we have. 2tw type

    On my 2008 GPr i currently use 2w i'm told by the refinery its the same.
    But thats an oil companys opinion who just blend oil not deal with watercraft as a business.

    What do you guys think is it advisable to put premix type oil into my oil injection GP.

    2008 Gp1300r

    Riva de cat
    Riva de cat chip
    Riva free flow
    Riva power filter

    you only have to run the 2W yamalube if you still have a Catalytic converter i noticed in your list of mods you have a D-plate so it is safe to use other oils just make sure it is oil injection safe ..

    Premix only oil is generally thicker and not the best to use in injection systems. Most big oil brands have a special injector oil, and a specific premix oil. Usually they say its ok to premix the injector oil, but not the other way around.
