Default Re: Can I Use This Oil

For the benefit of those who didn't see the information you probably read, outboard motor oil, as a rule, is formulated for water cooled engines only. They typically run at a lower temperature than an air cooled engine therefore the oil might not hold up to the higher temperature requirements and fail. We always suggest to look for a 2 cycle oil specially made for air cooled engines.
Good luck with your project. Have fun, ride safe.
