Thread: Yamalube 2R in TPI?

  1. #1

    Default Yamalube 2R in TPI?

    I知 coming off a YZ250X to my 2020 XC and I have 6 bottles of Yamalube 2R left over. The stuff worked great in the YZ. Been thinking of using it in the TPI but wondering if others have.

    2r was never meant to be an injector fluid, something like a Belray SI7 would be my choice.

    i wouldn't. Too thick imo. Does it say for injector use on it? I have some Mobil1 synthetic 2stk oil leftover that i am not using either

    Seems too thick.
    You need to use a proper injector oil.

    I致e used Crosspower 2T as both premix and in my TPI bike, so assumed the Yamalube would work fine both ways too. Looks like I値l just stick with the Crosspower to stay on the safe side. This thing uses so little oil I知 not concerned about the cost, and I値l likely have another premix bike in the future I can save it for.

    The 2R is a little thinner than the Crosspower 2T. You could run the 2R but not my favorite oil. Note that cST and mmイ/s are 2 ways to denote the same measurements.
    Yamaha 2r = 55 cSt @ 40ーC
    Crosspower 2t = 60 mmイ/s (40ーC)

    Check the MSDS for viscosity.

    I haven't jumped into the TPI club yet so I'm curious... Did KTM/Motorex spec a different oil than the Crosspower 2T for the TPI?

    I really like my TPI, but still ride my 14 250W a lot too, for trail work, which I do a lot of. Is the TPI a game changer? Not really. Sure nice not to have to mess with the jetting when we go to CO or during the colder months. But the power is pretty much the same, mileage is a little bit better. I'd buy it again, but it would not bother me if KTM had stayed with carb's, either.
