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

    I'm using Castrol TTS in my 2T scoots--works for premix and autolube. So far nothing has seized so it must be okay. :dunno 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. :lol3

    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![​IMG]

    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. :nod 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.

    Us 4-Stroke Scooter Riders collectively thumb our noses at you 2-stroke scooter riders.
    Or as Loaded likes to call them - 2-scrotes.

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

    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

    Not scooter related, but I still fondly remember the smell of Blendzall after 45 years.

    Oil?

    "The Sway charger works with both 110v and 240v. Sway will come standard with a 110v wall outlet plug, and there will be an upgrade option for the J1772 car charger plug that will work at standard EV charging stations. A home charging unit for charging the J1772 is available, and requires 240v current."

    Sway is scheduled for launch in Summer 2016

    Neat concept, no weather protection though.
    Add a shield to the front and I'd look.
    Of course, I'll believe they exist when I see a production unit. Could be another Elio.

    Rockoil or castrol racing 2t, quality oils, smells great, can't beat that 2t smell!
    As for 4t?if you ever get your hands on a piaggio 180 2t(gilera runner or the beautiful Italjet dragster... drooling here thinking of that one...) ye wouldn't piss on a 4th scoot if it was on fire. Hooligans stock, but equally happy cruising around. As for a tuned one? Check YouTube...
