    I used to use Maxim Caster 927 all the time; but have since switched to Yamalube. Been using the Yamalube for several seasons now. But I just recently installed a new ESR 310 PV cylinder and ESR recommends using the Caster 927. Is the Yamalube still ok to use, or should I start using Maxim Caster 927 again?

    I'm still breaking in my cylinder now, but I'm using the Yamalube. Is that gonna be a problem?

    Maxima Castor 927 is 80% Synthetic and 20% Castor or BeNol Castor will provide better lubricating properties. I am not sure if YamLube 2R is all synthetic or a blend of Synthetic & Castor…I understand it is a blend of synthetics or semi-synthetics.

    Go with the manufactures recommendation, then when your PV fails, they will not be able to say you did not follow the recommended oil for use…

    i use the yamalube 2r... it's cheaper, protects well, and burns super clean.

    my opinion
    Belray MC-1 for use with pump gas. (if running pump gas then probably a milder motor and can get by with a good oil). I've ran this in my Rs, blasters, and stock zillas since mid 90s

    Maxima 927 for race gas (if running race gas probably a more powerful motor and thus best lube required)
    88 x 3 TRX250R's, couple 88 blasters, couple 85 350x's, 87/85 TRX350XR hybrid, 88 zilla, 92/87 Hybrid LT250/500R, & JP Racing Outlaw chassis w/ LT500R HRD motor

    Klotz is really one of the top oils in my opinion. Been using R-50 forever never fouled a plug or had any issues in any motor i ran it in. Plus it smells awesome

    Experience is knowing you were an idiot. Common sense is trying not to be an idiot. Wisdom is knowing that you will still be an idiot.

    927 Or Motoul 800, only oils to buy (imo from rebuilding engines) they keep engines of similar use much cleaner.
