Default Re: Boat Oil in my bike

It would help if we knew what engine you have. If you're talking about a Chinese 2 stroke then read on.

By "boat oil" I'm assumimng you mean outboard motor oil. The general consensus here is that oil formulated for outboards is not a good idea. Some have run it without a problem but the oil is made for water cooled engines. I'd suggest you look for oil made for air cooled engines. It is usually made to withstand a higher engine temperature.
Good luck.
