I'm sure I used to use Putoline MX5 in my 2 strokes with no issues.
One was a TS125R that started off auto lube but I converted to pre mix. The other was a KDX200 that was always pre mix.
However, I was advised by my local bike shop to fit a bigger main jet when I converted the TS which I did. So NKL990 might very well be correct about the oil being thicker etc but on the other hand it was still the same oil?
Mind you, I never once had an issue with plugs fouling on either bike (or indeed any other 2 stroke I've owned) so perhaps Stevewest was getting the ratio wrong?
Or perhaps not, I really don't know but like Burt I never had a problem with Putoline 2 stroke oil.
No I wasn't running the wrong ratio
, but hey if MX5 works for you then use it. It's just that I have tried a few oils and prefer something else.
