2 Stroke Oil Question...

Recommended Posts

Ok, I sent hubby to the local cycle shop for some 2 stroke oil and it was closed. He stopped at Home Depot and picked up 2 small bottles of 2 stroke oil with stabilizer in it, but it is synthetic lube. I still have some regular oil in the injector, but not synthetic. Can I add this to my oil injection with the regular oil in it, or should I disconnect the injection unit and just run premix? I used to run Castor 927 premix without the injection, but is easier for my son to just add gas and go....anyone got a comment or suggestion?:huh:

From what I understand mixing them won't hurt anything, but run the regular down as low as you can and then add the synthetic.

i thought once you use synthetic, you can't go back... but that's 4 stroke i'm talking ...

i'm really not sure cheriah, i think wylde1 has a two stroke, better to ask him than be sorry ...

and the Castor 927 states specifically "not for injection". Makes sense to me Wylde1 to let it go down and add, but can u even use it with injection? What do you use? But then as Oxy said, do I have to continue with synthetic? Maybe I should just go get some more regular 2 stroke oil and use the other stuff for the dirtbike and the weedwacker...:confused:

I am actually using Kawasaki Jet Ski oil now, because it was on a closeout. I got a gallon for the same price as a regular quart. I have not had any problems with it. I have used Yamalube and a synthetic blend previously. I haven't had any problems, although the Yamalube gave new meaning to the phrase "two-stroke smoke." lol

I did some more digging and found this.

Drummer,

If the experts say mixing conventional oil and synthetic is not good....why then do most if not all of the major oil producers sell conventional/synthetic blend oils?

Motor Oil, Transmission Fluids & Synthetic Oil | Quaker State

Myth 4: Switching between synthetic and conventional You can't switch from synthetic oil to conventional oil or mix the two.

Fact You may interchange synthetic and conventional oil as long as the synthetic motor oil product and conventional motor oil product meet the viscosity and performance requirements outlined in the vehicle’s owner’s manual. Synthetic blends, in fact, are a mixture of conventional and synthetic-base oils.

Mixing Synthetic and Conventional Motor Oils

Question: Mixing Synthetic and Conventional Motor Oils Can you ever blend synthetic oils and conventional oils? If so, what is the ratio? -- Julie Patten, Des Moines, IA Answer: Yes, synthetic oils can be blended with conventional oils. Several companies, including ExxonMobil, market synthetic blends which are a combination of synthetic and conventional oils. In the case of ExxonMobil, the ratio of synthetic to conventional oil in these products is considered proprietary information.

Here are some "blend" oils

No I don't want you to blow it up.:no: From what we read and the fact that I have been mixing it up and haven't had anything catastrophic happen:biggrin: you should be OK. Just to be safe I would maybe take a short run and be easy on it to make sure before getting crazy.:yes:

I ran synthetic and dinosaur oil mixed in my sleds all the time. Didn't hurt the injector pump, foul plugs, or effect mileage. Alot of that is BS based on performance statistics and sales tactics. ANY oil is better than none @ all. I'd say run the oil tank as low as possible then fill it with the synthetic. I know quads might be a tad different because the intention is to be run in warm weather but I've never had a problem in the sleds. Try it!

      What is the best fuel mix ratio to use in a 250. I have deleted the oil injector. I have seen anything from 50:1 to 32:1. Figured someone here would have had experience and know the best ratio.

      What is the best block off kit to delete the oil injector on a 1992 Polaris Trail Boss 250 4x4. I have already disconnected it but I need to remove it so it doesn't grenade the engine. Thanks for the input.

      Picked this gem up today for two Benjamin's. Bike is complete, just worn out all over. Should be able to get the plastics back green, need to fix the shifting as it doesnt go into neutral, carb has been off 6 months but the intake was plugged off and he had an OEM carb that just needs rebuilt. Rear brake drum is completely seized in the open position. Normal relay, solenoid, wires are trashed. Think itll take about $100 to get it rideable which isnt bad for a $900ish bike.

      The rear brakes on this are hydraulic and manual. The hydraulic part is all messed up so I disconnected it all and want to go just manual on the rear. I got it all put back together but doesn't seem to work to well, like not enough pressure. The manual says I should mark the casing before taking it apart which I didn't read until to late. Any ideas? I put new brake pads on.

      I had the local garage change the oil and filter in my machine and ever since they changed it there has been an oil leak. Taken it back several times and they can't figure out the problem.

      Hey people
      Question for all, just picked a 1986 bayou 300 thinking of going synthetic any thoughts ?

      Common misconception is that you need to return to the dealer for an exact
      oil filter for your ATV.  Aftermarket companies actually make filters for
      the O.E.M. market. Why go to the dealer when you can get the exact filter you
      need at your local auto parts store such as CARQUEST or NAPA. Wix corporation
      makes ATV filters that you'll find in most of your popular autopart stores. 
      In most cases, you'll pay allot less! 
      WIX is a leader in the filter business.  Check out this
      ATV FILTER CATALOG.  Remember, you can
      right down the filter # and have it cross-referenced at your local autopart
      store if they don't carry WIX, CARQUEST, or NAPA.
      You can also click on the part # for the filter image.
