    Question Continue to use Yamalube 2W, best 2 stroke oil to use?

    Hi everyone,
    I have a 2000 GP1200R and 99 Kawasaki Ultra 150.
    D plate cat removal on the GP1200R, flame arrestors, hole shot kit, etc.
    I have continued to use Yamalube 2W, but have heard good and bad.
    If price isn't a consideration, what is the very best oil to use? I would prefer something I can use on both the Ultra and the GP1200R (no mods that I know of on the Ultra).
    Im open to any suggestions as well as thoughts on Yamalube 2W.

    Thank you for any help/suggestions

    On a related note, since there isn't an oil gauge on the 2000 GP1200R, other than taking off the seat and looking inside the hull is there a good way to see how full the oil tank is?

    thank you

    I run mystik Jt4 at 27 bucks a gal and it's full synthetic. mystik also makes sea and snow which is apparently the same as Yamalube 2w. yamalube 2w and mystik are both Citgo oil.

    I have used several different oils in the past. I only use synthetic oil in the high performance triple pipe ski. The synthetic oil in a regular ski doesn't seem to burn up in the combustion chamber and leaves a oily residue in the exhaust It is good oil. My sons ski is a gp1200r with Riva heads , reed stuffers, flame arresters, D plate and much more. I have been using the cheap blue gallon jug of plane 2 stroke oil from Walmart in it for 4 years now and he rides it to death all summer. And the back of the ski where the exhaust comes out doesn't have the oily residue like my triple piper.
    I like using an oil that burns up with the gas.

    Some dealers are selling half drums of yamalube 2W on eBay for cheap. Most dealers aren't seeing two strokes as much anymore. There was a drum with 30 gal left for around $200, that's $7/gal for yamalube

    Thank you everyone for the replies.
    With me having just basic mods, should I go full syn? Tank is currently full of Yamalube 2W, should I run it out before changing over?
