    Nobody running Maxima K2 for injector bikes? Claims it's Orange approved.

    Nope.

    Some basic tests showed that with different viscosity oils the oil pump as to work more (impulses), doesn't sound appealing at all.

    Have you or anybody else got the viscosity numbers? If it's very close to motorex then it would be ok but i wouldn't just go off whats written on the bottle. Maxima K2 has always been a great oil so quality wise no issue it's just the viscosity values so it matches the oil pump designed output.

    Done a bit of digging for those that are interested.
    maxima k2 injector has a visocity of 63.5 at 40degrees C (motorex 56)
    and 10.7 at 100degrees C (motorex 9.6)
    Flashpoint k2 injector 122 degrees C, Motorex >110 degrees C

    Going on these specs,K2 injector is very close to motorex and would seem to be a viable option for loyal maxima fans.

    From my experience maxima 2t oils have always been of excellent quality so i can't see them skimping on quality on this oil.

    Indeed.

    And being a triple ester oil should be pretty good!
