    01' Ultra 150

    A friend of mine asked me a question about 2 cycle oil. What will happen if you fill the oil reservoir with a different type of oil without knowing what was in there prior. (i.e. synthetic, petroleum based). He says it is sluggish, I know that when we go out he will be at full throttle and the ski cuts out like it is misfiring. I am stumped… any ideas to help assist him.

    That would have nothing to do with oil. My best guess would be to trim the plug wires. May have one with a bad connection. While you are in there throw in a fresh set of plugs.

    Although it's probably not the cause of your issue, mixing oil types can cause the oil to congeal possibly causing engine damage.

    If you think that you mixed oil, you may want to drain the tank and refill.
