    the crankcase oil for a 2stroke is the pre-mix. It drops out into the crank case.

    If you mean tranny oil, I would use specific 2 stroke tranny oil made for dirt bikes and quads. It's a little different than just regular motor oil.

    i thought full synthetic was bad for the clutch and makes it slip easier?

    Ive been running Amsoil 10w40 full synthetic motorcycle oil for 2 years putting
    2600 miles on my 2 stroke atv and motorcycle. Not one clutch failure! Just make sure the oil has no friction modifiers. Friction modifiers will lead to clutch slip ending up in failure. Rotella t dose ok but in my 4 stroke after a summer of using it the clutch started slipping. So I would not use rotella
