Check any autoparts store, like O'reilly's.... They often carry Lucas brand oils.  A lot of people run the lucas pre mix and love it.

Next time have a bunch of oil stashed..  Now you don't have choices. Check your local auto parts stores but you'll probably be stuck with some outboard motor oil type brand .. just go to walmart and be done with it and buy a few containers of good oil on Tuesday. You don't have friends to borrow from?

I forgot about O reily and Lucas.. That's a good approach.  You'd be supporting a company that sponsors racing too.  Still if I couldn't find a friend or a decent brand I'd still go to walmart and get some leafblower 2 stroke oil just to ride one day.  Who knows maybe we are all getting ripped spending so much for oil that may be the same... or close enough to it.

Walmart or an autoparts store will sell Redline or Valvoline brand 2stroke oil specifically made for motorcycles. Its not my first choice, but the stuff works in a pinch.

Most gas stations have 2 stroke oil, Walmart has 2 stroke oil, all auto parts stores have 2 stroke oil.

As long as the rating is the same, you can use it. Actually, most of the two stroke oil that is available is suitable for two stroke dirtbike use.

I am lucky that there is a Cycle Gear in my town. They are open 7 days a week. I still use Lucas oil exclusively now, as it has worked better for me than the Motul and Motorex that I used to use at a way lower price. Took apart my top end after 70 hours, and everything was nice and lubed, and my powervalves were as clean as can be.

Cycle gear is pretty cool, they have some really good sales and they are one of the only places that is open when I am off work.

 

I never understood why retail businesses are open 9-5 M-F, how do you get any customers? Everyone is at work, if I ran a business like that it would be Wed-Sun 11-8PM
