Engine oil help on a kawasaki kx125 2 Stroke

Ok guys i know this is a noob question but i want some input from the experienced dirt bike owners.

I am changing the oil on my bike and want to know can i run straight Cross Power Fully Synthetic 2T motor oil or do i need to do a mix with some regular oil?

What oil is best to use?

Also if the mix is the better choice to do how much of the synthetic oil vs regular oil?

Take in the fact that the bike is bored over with a bigger piston...

Thanks for any help or advice you can give on this. This is my first dirt bike and want to make sure it is well taken care off.

2T is for premix...do not put it in anything but your fuel jug! Just going from memory, 10w40 motorcycle oil will work.

It says Motor Oil on the bottle.

It almost doesnt matter, as in any transoil will do the job, no oil or real old oil wont do the job.

I dog the outa my bike and never had a problem. I run hp transoil (honda red bottle) and gn4 premix (honda blue bottle).
It is a red looking oil. Here is a picture of the bottle.
OIL

Can i just use this in the trans/case or should i use regular 10-40w oil? Thanks for the help!

The Bottle Reads:

Motorex Cross Power 2T Oil Fully synthetic, high performance engine oil for 2-stroke motorcycles
An oil specially developed for the hard conditions of off-road use
Extremely reliable lubrication
Specially made for Enduro and Motocross machines
Developed with leading racing teams
Premix or injector use with 20wt viscosity
Recommended by KTM for all of their 2-stroke motorcycles

So i am guessing i have to mix with some 20wt oil?

I did a quick Google search on that oil...given the confusing description I refuse to comment any further until I can do more research.

Does give a pretty confusing description, but since it says premix or injector use still kinda seems like its 2t premix. I've been running ATF type F Trans fluid in my 2 strokes for years, works great, available at auto parts stores and is like 2.99 a qt. at oriellys.

I've said it before, and it was questioned, so I'm going to say it again. THE OIL IN QUESTION IS FOR PREMIX, IT IS NOT FOR YOUR TRANSMISSION. Is that clear enough for everyone reading this thread? OP, do you know why the bottle says "motor oil"? It's because, when mixed into your fuel at the proper ratio, this oil lubricates the moving parts in your engine (with the exception of the tranny and clutch). I suggest you invest in a service manual and start reading as it sounds like you need to bring yourself "up to speed" before you tear up your new whip.

Thanks for the help even though you're being sort of an . I do Have a service manual book but it says nothing about using synthetic motor oil unless I misread that part....does your service manual tell you anything about using synthetic motor oil of any sort??? I don't think it does but anyways I do appreciate the help and I will just put what the book says/ what you told me to put 10w40.

If you're referring to me as a douche bag, you're not the first, and I'm sure you won't be the last. I'll keep my attitude, industry experience, and years of hands on knowledge to myself the next time either of you post up in need of help. Good luck with your MX adventures.

Thats good that you have experience and are more knowledgeable than most people. All i was reffering to is that helping someone out without the attitude will get you more respect within the community and in life. If you want to go around being an then i wouldnt want your help even if it was for the best. Good luck with your being an adventures.

No worries. I could be less of an , but its easier for me to just keep my mouth shut (what I should've done) than it is for me to censor my verbiage. I shared the correct info the first time and should've just left it at that. At least the OP won't be putting premix oil into his transmission.

Hey OP, I apologize for being an . I have a tendency to come across that way at times, something you'll learn the longer you hang around this place. If you want to pick the brains of a more MX specific crowd, be sure to check out http://www.houstonmotocross.com/

I'm doubting he is, just seems like he could act like less when somebody is obviously is a noob and could use some help, no hard feelings. Just seems like there's other ways to go about it or maybe it's just me...
