2 Stroke oil for a vintage bike
 
Ok! I'm sure this has been covered here before but, I can't find a thing...
I am redoing a 1983 Honda Cr 480r. I have been out of the game some 40 years until a wild hair on the south side of the belt line bit. I have no idea what is the best 2 stroke oil to use once I finish this project and want to fire it up. Should I use a caster oil like Blenzall or some of the new synthetic type oils? I am really kind of at a loss here..:cry

Uh oh, a 'what is the best oil' thread :lol3
Personally I use Maxima927 in my bigbore hondas, its a catstor/synthetic blend so you get the best of both worlds.
TONS of debate can be had on the topic, but as long as you are giving the crank and cylinder the lubrication it needs, go have fun!

Twin Shocker should be along soon to straighten you out.

I just finish restoring my 1980 PE400, and used the same oil and 44:1 mix as I do on my modern 2 smokers...Motul 800 2T. And for gear oil I used Bel Ray 75 weight gear saver...again same as I use on my medern 2 smoker.

Motul or the Maxima stuff will work fine. For road racing, I used 18:1. For part throttle, on-off the gas, no long sustained high rpms, you should be fine with something higher. Don't go crazy at 50:1. It's an old bike, it needs lube. Try 32:1 and jet for it.

I have an 85 Cr250 that I run the Motul @ 50-1. Never had an issue.

Back in 1983 when I raced a NEW cr480.
I used Yamaha Lube R at 50/1.

You can ask this in the 2 smokers page :deal

Domiken 06-25-2013 09:10 AM

MOTUL is what I went with.

927 stinks but works good, maxima super M has been good to me as well. Blendzall smells good!!!

Tractor Hydro in the tranny, best stuff on earth, no clutch fade and no stink on weekly removal.

Polaris synthetic VES GOLD

Hey! you guys have been a big help and I thank you for your info. I used to love Blendzall back in the day but, I like the idea of the blends.
