I wouldn't worry about the warranty issues regarding oil for this motor, as NONE of the XS series motors are available from Barrus for sale to the general public, only racers. And as the motor is not type approved for Europe, they don't have a warranty!

So you could use whatever shite oil that you favour!

I'm having trouble getting hold of the quicksilver premium plus and just reading there will being no optimax oil available until the end of August.What are the people with optimax engines going to use in the mean time?Barrus should really give the names of other oils to use as a alternative.As I would not be a very happy opti owner if i could not use my engine for the next 5 weeks due to them not holding enough in stock.
