    What oil do you use?

    What's the best 2 stroke oil to use? Should I use fully-synthetic or just the normal?

    A decent branded semi synthetic will do the job fine (putoline, rock oil etc etc).

    Personally I use SIP stuff for the main reason: it's cheap.
    I tend to get through at least a litre of it a month mid-season, so at 6 or 7 quid a bottle for fully synth you can't go wrong.


    [actually I keep meaning to buy a case of it for next year...]

    You're only running a malossi lad. You're more likely to seize cause of a blocked jet or an air leak than changing your brand of oil... 15 quid a pop fuck that !

    And you ride like a mod...

    I use Motul or something semi synth in my lammy, not a power house but its got a fair bit of poke. I have held for 50 miles plus on motor way at full throttle so i think this proves its decent. Got a barrel of it, so im not chaging any time soon.
