    I'm a ways from riding this one but picked up a decent 1978 IT 400 that is unmolested other than a desert tank and hand guards. Should make a fun project..haven't ridden a two stroke larger than a 250 in a long time:)

    I've used it in the gearbox. If you put it in the crank case the motor will run poorly.

    Some clutches work better with ATF. But dedicated two stroke gear box oil is often better.

    I've used ATF (dex-merc) in the gearbox as winter weight oil before. It's high in detergent and is often used as a gearcase flush after submersion incidents. I also use ATF in all of my forks.
