Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

Simon Belmont /

What are your opinions on this?

What 2-stroke oil do you guys use?

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

I've never run the stuff, but it does seem suited for racing applications, all my mopeds are stockers, I have run all kind of oil, but in recent yrs have used either Hondaline or Yamalube, right now I have a bottle of Castrol 2t, works fine, I run everything at 32:1, have been riding mopeds since '83, and have never had an oil related engine failure. Even ran my Hobbit for YEARS at 25:1 'cause Honda said to, cokes up the exhaust port, back to 32:1, it's all good. Bottom line (imho) is any 2 stoke oil sold today is far batter than any sold when these machine were new, so it really does no matter much. Unless you are racing.

I used it for years. No problems on hi performance or stock bikes, premix or injection.

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

Oil threads are so weird, such a Ford vs Chevy mentality, everything is pretty damn good today, especially for machines built 40 odd yrs ago.

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

I've honestly never seen that much of a difference between the motul I use and saber. The Amsoil is just expensive.

Brandon, do you use Motul 510 - 2T (full synthetic oil)?

If so, what ratio do you mix it at, 50:1?

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

I use 800, 50:1.

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

It’s kinda funny because roadkills two biggest sponsors are horrible companies. Saber oil and optima battery’s lol

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

I used Saber in my Tomos Streetmate during my 2010 Lake Erie Loop record setting run 677 miles in 24 hour s and 3 minutes. Came in first, set the 50cc moped record...Never a problem, No smoke, no fouled plugs

I'd recommend it. Stock Streetmate 49 cc. Ported, clutch work but that's it . Ran her pretty much wide open whenever I could.

FWIW I wouldn't do it again long time on little seat even with butt pad :(

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

That's pretty impressive, the ride and that you had no issues.

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

I raised $4000 in pledges to send 30 burned kids to Camp Fitch that year.

Everyone that pledged dollars per miles ha,ha had to pay up they all thought either I would quit or the ped would break neither happened. I was the poster boy for 5 hour energy drink..in the wee hours of the morning I must of went through 2 or 3 bottles trying to stay awake. I would think someone could break the record but you'd have to really want to do it. I did it just to raise the money for the pediatric fund "Aluminum Cans for Burned Children" good Karma

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

Don't be an idiot like me and run amsoil 80:1 on rippers.

Trashed numerous small ends over time. Bottom end wasn't ever affected, still running the same hobbit bottom end I used on pinball in 2015

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

Saber is for 2strokes that call for 100:1 ratio

And it works great for that

AMSoil makes Dominator which should be used for most all other 2stroke applications

I've been using Amsoil Saber exclusively at 80:1 ratio (50ml oil per 1 gallon gas) on my stock Tomos Sprint 2013 with Estoril pipe, it now has 14871 miles (almost 15k miles), the maintenance done to it was oil changes, clutch relining & chain adjustment, have not done engine rebuilt on it, the compression is still about 130psi, couple thousand miles ago I did disassemble top end to see its condition and piston was squeaky clean, I also add recommended amount of "star tron enzyme" to the gas.

Anyway, I've gone ahead and just ordered another batch of amsoil saber. (edited)

any high quality 2t can be ran at 100:1 with no ill effects. amsoil just put it on the bottle. i used to run 710 100:1 for a long time and it was great.

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

I use saber cause it smells good

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

So much confusion ...

Good thing I just use Lucas syn blend . LOL

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

I use peanut oil

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

I've been using it exclusively over the last 7 years on over a dozen bikes and on the NYC to LA Baker's dozen run—never had an issue, ever.

I’ve used Amsoil exclusively for the past 10 years. 100:1...80:1 is for weenies :)

That Motul Transoil is where it’s at, though.

Re: Amsoil Saber no longer recommended for 2-stroke bikes?

I think I've only ran their transoil in any moped I've had. Great stuff.
