engine. sorry should have been more clear on that...

You're going to get a million different opinions on this one...... Use a pre-mix related oil, specified for a motorcycle. Castors are more expensive, smell real cool, but unless you're running at a high RPM, they'll gum up the powervalve real quick....... AND don't use when under about 40 degrees (will seperate from gas.) Suzuki's oil is good, Yamalube is good.......... a lot of good name brand stuff. Don't fall into the way-oil-lean mixtures (50:1 - 100:1) Your 125 works hard, stick with 32:1 and jet accordingly.... changing oils and ratios will mean re-jetting. Choose an oil, choose a mixture, and stick with it for reliable jetting performance.
