What kind of oil for scooters?

You see?

It's threads like this that prove we need a Scooter Forum!

Now we need a two stroke and four stroke categories in our forum.

I'm using Castrol TTS in my 2T scoots--works for premix and autolube. So far nothing has seized so it must be okay. I'm hitting the mfg's top speed and fuel mileage estimates so I'm happy.

For the tranny oil, whatever I've got leftover from the BMW.

Scooters run best on Regular.
You see, they like to burn oil and smoke like MF`s in the first place.
For that extra `Kick`, feed `er a bit-o-85 octaine.
Trust me.
Your crank case will thank you!

Well, the Ruckus is supposedly one of the greenest vehicles on the planet especially with the new PGM-FI they've added to the Japanese models.

And I've heard they get 850 mpg. Uphill. With a headwind.

Or somethin' like that.

Scooterpotumus is a 4T so I just use Mobil 1 synth. Without a gearbox or clutch car oil will work just fine.

Or as Loaded likes to call them - 2-scrotes.

It's kind of the new Mods vs. Rockers thing.

For 2 strokes you can use the exotic Agip oil, but for the ultimate aroma use Castrol R racing 2 stroke oil, it smells so gooooooooood, Belray is ok too
