Best Two Stroke Oil

Post by simonz1red »

I've now bought a lovely GT550K but before giving her a good run I want to top up the two stroke oil tank. The problem is I don't know on what she currently runs. How can I tell? What is the best oil to now use? Is it a bad idea to simply top up the tank without knowing what's currently in it? Looking forward to hearing from you.

I think each person might give you a different answer if you asked them what the best oil is.

Just beware it depends on how long the oil has been sat in that bike IMO ;) after all It does have a shelf life.
Personally i would run as low as possible or empty it out and start from scratch with your chosen oil.
