castrol two stoke versus other oils

I'll echo that, Sledwrench. If people put as much time/effort into maintaining and tuning their sleds properly as they do trying to figure out which oil is best, nobody'd ever breakdown. Since I've started riding the early 70's, I've used a LOT of different brands and types (syn and non-syn,) switching and mixing all the time. Have never had a lubrication related problem on a single sled. And I should add that I rarely keep a sled for less than 10,000 miles. Just use 2 stroke oil of whatever brand you like. These days I do prefer to by synthetics, primarly due to less smoke/odor than petroleum products.
Body Armor SAVES LIVES!!!
COURTESY on the trails is CONTAGIOUS!!! Slow down EARLY for oncoming sleds!!!
ONLY pass from behind when signaled to do so!!!

THEN.....and only then...RIDE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT!!!

Just sold a 1997 Polaris XLT Special with 14,000 miles on it, never used anything but Castrol, never re-built the engine, still running grreat. Same thing with a 1994, 25,500 miles on it, same original engine.
