Thread: What 2t oil do use in your TPI and does it matter?

    Default What 2t oil do use in your TPI and does it matter?

    So I'm almost out of the Motorex that comes with the bike and I have a ton of Motul on the shelf that I used in my Carbed bikes. Do I go out and buy more Motorex or do I run the Motul that I already have. You hear about all these TPI bikes running so different from one and another and I'm wondering if the premix makes a difference. I know my Motul is a lot thicker oil than the Motorex. What do you guys think?

    id use oil designed for injection, many racing premixes aren't.

    like a Belray si7, is designed for injection

    Klotz TCW-3 Techniplate in mine. No complaints so far at 60+ hrs and smells good. I would guess that as long as the oil is noted as compatible with injection systems, is should be alright.

    KTM lists a spec for the injection oil, which is JASO FD. So you'd hope any oil that has that spec would work just as well at the Motorex stuff. But personally, I'm staying with the Motorex, especially headed into the colder months. I don't have a lot of other premix oil sitting around to use up, and I'll just use it in the other bikes. The TPI does not use a lot of oil, so it's still pretty economical.

    I would also hope that any oil that meets the JASO FD sped would work as well but that being said, you can find so many oils that meet that spec that are so different in thickness. I wonder if any of these bike running issues have to do with oils that are believed to be within spec but don't work as well as the Motorex.

    Yeah, and it doesn't smell very good.
