Uh oh, an oil question.

I'm looking for a quality 2T oil that smells like castor bean oil but is suitable for auto injection.

Does such a thing exist?

The smell of bean oil takes me to a happy place.

How happy does it make you? I used to use the bean oil mix just because it made a whiney riding buddy sick to ride behind me.


But I dont think oil makers do custom scenting,not that it wouldnt be nice.

Are you going to be sniffing this oil, or using it in your bike?
Ok, none of my business, don't answer that.
I recommend Amsoil. I like it.
Tho' I have used other stuff, probably just about every brand ever, at least once.
My recommendation is, use oil where recommended.

Both. Duh.

When I was a kid I spent a whole lot of time at the drag strip watching my dad race his H2. That smell has stuck with me forever. I'm about to pickup an RD350. To get that smell from my street bike would be great.

Redline synthetic oils smell like castor oil. it smells really fucking good. If my wife wore perfume that smelled like that I'd never get any work done on my bikes. Dunno how they do that.

I ran it in my trials bikes. When practising you ride the same little section over and over so you're going to be smelling your exhaust. I had been using Motul but it stank so much that other competitors were complaining. Redline makes the exhaust smell like unicorn farts.

I used to love the smell of Gold Label Blendzall,of course were talking back when I started racing shorttrack at age 14,everybody ran the good Blendzall and the smell permeated the place. Had to be fresh mix every week so the extra went in the truck gas tank,could smell it all week that way.

They still make a gold label Blendzall but its not the same.

Yeah chicks should have perfume like that.

I use Motul 710 it smells great and burns clean.

A capful of Blendzal in the tank for the authentic bean smell.

On a ride a few years ago, I followed a friend of Skorch on a chambered RZ-350, around Horsetooth and up Rist Canyon. I swear he was burning castor, and it was a sweet reminder of my long-gone MRA days.
