Castrol 2 stroke

    as ur RD is 2 stoke, 2 cylindr engine .. i produces high power of 30 bhp...hence more high rating 2 stroke engine oil is more prefered .

    rating will be done with respect to temperatures, lowest temp vs highest temperature.


    where 20 is the lowest temp i.e., (-20 C)

    n 40 is (+40 C) inbetween which the oil is perfect to be worked !!

    i prefer castrol 2 stroke engine oil.

Yamaha r15 v2 I start my bike and after 4 5 second engine hed is very hot

consider this
the head is oil cooled from the lubrication of the rocker gear and shaft/s
check that you have lubrication to that gear
the head is cooled by incoming air/fuel mixture so check the tune up as it may be too lean
if it is water cooled then check for an air lock in the head in the coolant

Are you sure it is running with the correct plugs? Make certain you are otherwise a plug in the wrong heat range will annhialate a piston on your bike. When you say shutting down do you mean it stops completely or holds back?

Have just bought a 1988 Nissan Bluebird, need to know if the engine and gear box oil are seperate if so where do you change the gear box oil?

there no automotive engines that share same oil with transmission
on your gear box there should be two plugs one in about middle and one near bottom the bottom one is your drain and the top one is your fill

I have a 79 yamaha xs750 special what kind of fluid do I put in the transmission and how much?

The transmission oil and the engine oil are the same. Use only a JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. Automotive oil uses different additives and will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. 10w-40 oil is good for cold climate. 20w-50 for hot climate/touring. Synthetic oil will make your cycle run cooler and shift easier. Your final drive uses 80/90 hypoid gear oil. Synthetic hypoid oil will reduce friction and make your final drive run cooler. You will probably need four quarts of oil . Pour in three quarts and check the oil level. Top up as needed. If changing the oil filter you will have to run the motor to get an accurate oil level reading

Will Japanese RD350 pipes fit on an Indian RD350 HT

as far as i know, yes they should fit. Just check the exhaust port for any restrictor. The only diff between indian models, and UK, would be some anti - pollution gear.

Nissan pulsar 1988 wont go into gear I can put the gear stick in the right gear but does nothing wont reverse or drive, its automatic and has a reconditioned engine in it

try checking your transmission oil (i had the same problem but after $30 it was fixed) it might had drained out. if your transmission oil is fine then consult a mechanic preferebly an automatic transmission specialist. may be your transmission needs a rebuild.

Two stroke oil

Use the factory " YAMALUBE " oil. Engine oil is not a big deal but you can't go wrong if you stick to factory products.
