Default Re: what type of 2 stroke oil?

I would really like to try the opti 2 oil. just have to find a place that sells it. I dread walking into the local dirtbike shop as I might leave with something more than just oil! Already divorced so what the **** !!! ha ha. But seriously where are you guys finding the opti 2?

IMHO the Chinese engines run best on racing oils. I've run Amsoil Saber, Opti, etc and I always come back to some racing mix. I like Amsoil Dominator the best, with just a splash of castor oil. Never leaves any residue that people tend to over worry about. I run 25:1 or 32:1, with one of the ounces castor.

My theory is: the loose clearances of these sloppy engines are more like racing engines than new tight tolerance production weed cutters.

If you go to the website that Bairdco posted > Interlube International, Manufacturers of premium Opti oils, Opti-2 and Opti-4 you'll find a phone number and they can give you a dealer near you based on your zip code. Good luck.
