Re: Redline Oil

If CT doesn`t have it.

Marken Performance on Ottawa St has stock of it (in Kitchener), and he will keep stocking it, as long as it sells of course.

and even Rudy Helds (New Hamburg) had some the last time I was there.

Mike,

That statement is 100% not true. Motor cycles have different requirements than air cooled aircraft engines. Oils used in chainsaws are a better choice than motorbike oils. Have you ever talked to DA? I suggest you call Jeff there and have a conversation with him. He has repaired and rebuilt 1000's of engines and has seen what every oil type does to the insides. It was him that directly quoted that Redline has the least carbon build up of all oils tested. This includes brands you say are no different.

Here is a video from DA Australia talking about this exact statement. I suggest you watch and do some research before you recommend others to use motorcycle oils.

No worries Kevin, not trying to offend you or destroy anyones DA or suggesting there is anything wrong with Redline Racing oil, just trying to save you some effort by suggesting there are other good alternatives available locally.

Please accept my apologies and assurance that I'll be careful in making oil recommendations in the future.

I will however; continue to run Motul in my DA's as they seem to like it

BTW, do you think Redline Racing oil was designed for air cooled 2 strokes? Nobody races chainsaws ; It is a motorcycle/ snowmobile/ marine racing oil just like Motul and Belray

Mike

Re: Redline Oil

Ok none taken

I dont think it was meant for chainsaws but DA also now says Stihl oil is good for them. I thing it has to do with the torque power cure. Not for high revs like in bikes. It also has to do with carbon. Redline is designed to not leave any behind. Some older engines like to be full of it to run well. (polaris indy lite)

Re: Redline Oil

It mainly has to do with Flash points of the oils.

Redline has a really really low flash point, hence it burns up during ignition process, leaving very little mess.(on fully tuned applications)

in a high reving/hi heat applications keeping the "goo" around during hot prolonged runs is more desirable, so a higher flash point oils are favoured. 7000-8000rpms isn't high reving.... I'm talking like 12000 plus

The Stihl Ultra comes close second for flash point, but still 100 degrees differential if I recall. So redline does take the cake on the low flash point.,

Which is better?... my back ground in the field doesn't qualify me in providing a proper analysis/answer, but using manufacturer recommendation can never hurt.

Happy oiling

Re: Redline Oil

From the Redline website:

"Summary of Two-Cycle Recommendations
Two-Stroke Racing Oil / Two-Cycle Kart Oil (they are both the same chemistry) - for highly modified racing engines which turn high rpms, such as racing motorcycles, karts, personal watercraft, snowmobiles, and highly modified outboards."


Somebody better tell DA that it's not made for a low rpm, air cooled two stroke. lol

All kidding aside, as stated, there are many fine oils in this class at your local bike dealer

i bet if DA tried Motul 800 Off Road, that would be the next flavour of the month

Re: Redline Oil

For those out WEST:

Phoned Lordco this morning, by 2:00 pm they phoned and had the 6 pints I ordered along with my NGK CM6 plugs. They have over 80 pints available at $10 each.
