Rock Oil

I bought some of the Rock Oil stuff.

Is it a good idea to spray on exposed metal parts of the engine?

I assume you mean their inhibitor spray? Rock Oil is a company like BP or Shell. Haven't used it myself but it looks pretty good - will order some soon.

I do use their semi synthetic 2 stroke oil though - it looks identical to the Mercury Quicksilver synthetic stuff but is a hell of a lot cheaper. Rock Oil is highly thought of in motorbike racing.

Used to use Rock Oil's chain lube.

As far as corrosion protection, I use Boeshield T9. I spray everything under the motor cowl, except for moving rubber bits (belts and such.)

T9 seems to work pretty well on everything except crescent wrenches. For some reason, if you have a crescent wrench and *think* about seawater, it will corrode to worthlessness within a few days.
