Hey. I have an '85 250R. I've been using HP-2 for a while. I just had it bored slightly and when I was at the shop picking up the jug everyone there told me I should use Yamalube 2R. Does anyone have an opinion about which is the better oil? I found it strange that a Honda shop was recommending Yamaha oil. Thanks for any opinions.
I use to use HP2 in my R and the oil seemed too thick and gummy. I noticed this more in the winter so I switched to Spectro and fouled less plugs. Now I run AMSOIL 50:1 and have had good results. I just put in some new rings and there was very little carbon build up.
