    What oil ...

    Hi, i just run out of oil for the first time since i bought the bike, it had Castrol Power 1 Racing 2T, now i am thinking of puting Motul 710 2T. Is Motul the better choice? Should i stay with Castrol? Do i have to drain the engine of oil before switching to Motul? Do I really have to drain it?

    One I learned the hard way is never mix oils. I can produce a lumpy slimy mass and it can get thicker up to the point where the pump get clogged
    If you really want to try put a bit of both oils in a cup and let it sit for a few days and then have a look.

    Don't think there should be to much difference between the Castrol Power 1 Racing 2T and the Castrol 710.
    I have used Castrol TTS, Motul 710 and running Putoline RS959 right now. (about 6L left)
    But just bought another 4L can of Motul710. (great deal and love the smell)

    I have run many different oils in race and road bikes, i have never found a problem with mixing any of the oils i have used. The caveat being i have always used top quality synthetic oils, i.e. Silkolene Pro/Motul 700/Castrol TTS etc, but the important point being is that you should should not get hung up on oil as long it is good quality!
