    YAMALUBE 2W vs. other oils

    Is this stuff good or just "not that bad"
    Current i use 2W with oil Injection with a little extra to the gas tank.

    If i go porting is pre mix a must or just add more to the tank.

    Thanks

    I did`nt found a lot by searching for 2w Yamalube.

    amsoil dominater or racing oil is the best alternative, ran it my 12r for years and now both my 13r's with no problems, yamaha claims only their oil when running cats but most of us throw those out anyway, hope this helps

    My opinion: Yamalube is good stuff, run it.

    Yamalube is fine. Amsoil keeps the power valves a little cleaner.

    I run Amsoil Interceptor both ways.

    Premix in the GPR's and injection in the STXR.

    You don't need to add any oil to your tank.

    I have a ported 1300 and run 50:1 Interceptor

    Amsoil Interceptor. As mentioned, it keeps the powervalves clean.
    Ran it for years in an unported 12R. performed the first 100hour inspection on my gas valves on amsoil and they had NO carbon deposit on them.

    here is a good thread on pistonwash as well

    remember Yamaha dont blend there own oil, so if you on the hunt for an alternative look for NMMA TC-W3 with anti rust inhibitors

    WaterWoody runs the AMSOIL Interceptor Oil even in his big 15++ engine.

    Just make sure you check your powervalves more often with the 2W.
