Default Re: Boat Oil in my bike

A couple oils I used before switching to what I consider to be one of the best 2 smoker oils (Opti2) where listed to be good for air or water cooled engines, over the years I've run many oils in chainsaws, weed wacker and 2 smoker dirt bikes, never had an oil related failure in any of them, and a couple of them were run on a mix of 30w SAE Penzoil in the mix instead of 2 smoker oil, I don't tell any one to do this but I ran an Echo chain saw for years on a 32:1 fuel/oil mix with the straight old 30w oil and that saw is over 30years old now and still runs great, the Echo engine is a much higher quality engine than the HT no doubt.

I say run a good quality 2 smoker oil in the HT, get the mix right, and above all else.... make sure the engine is NOT running lean, if it is, wont matter what oil you use or how much, the engine will have a short life if it is running to lean.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
