Great SR4

As i am still a new owner, I laid up my SR4 with a DT 55 on the back, took out the fuel tank and made sure the motor was down and drained and the cover was secure.

That was last August bank holiday. Arrived on Friday. Took it out on the water on Saturday, fresh fuel and checked that the 2 stroke tank was full, pumped me priming bulb.....

Started second turn of the key. Brilliant! not touched for a year and stored outside.

I was so impressed.

Last bit. I was given some Yamlube 2 stroke oil when i bought it. Am I ok to still use this? Need to buy some more soon and want to make sure i am buying the right stuff.

Don't use it I will take it off you to dispose of!

Not it will be fine, I do like it and find it smokes less than cheaper brands I use.
