Default Maxima causes excessive smoke???

i just started using maxima b/c my amsoil guy is not able to get me amsoil for $5 a quart anymore - but i got another friend who can get maxima pretty cheap so i have went with that - ever since i changed, my bike smokes pretty bad - it oil smoke - the plug looks great, i think it is that castor burning - has any1 else had this problem - i am thinking of switching to another brand, its not really bad just annoying, and i would hate to be the person behind me too

Maxima burns really crappy. It protects your piston VERY well, but it does smoke a bit. It always has for me anyway. Same with golden specro. They protect pretty well, but smoke and burn poorly. I prefer Mobile MX2T.

Amen golden spectro burns like crap! It blows smoke for at least 7 minutes then it only settles a lil bit. Prob has to do with my jettin too. Im going to try and run RED LINE after my top end change!

maxima castor927 is all i'll use. If smells good, i've gone through about 6 top ends on it, and they've all lasted respectably long, and were only bad bc of wear. THe piston always looks good and plenty of lube in the cylinder. And no i have not had the problem with smoke, once warm it shows no sign of smoke, not coming out of turns or nothing.

hay there all you 2 stroke riders ---> left click on your mouse real quick like about 10 times-sounds like you`re riding a two stroke huh?...well if it does sound like your bike when you`re riding it that means you are riding that thing too slow as that`s what it sounds like when a sissy is riding it-ride it like you just stole it and it sounds alot different...ok,i`ll shut up now

It's a two stroke, it is supposed to smoke. Sure not like a bug fogger but it is still going to smoke. The only way around that is ride a 4stroke that is not worn out.

I have ran all kinds of oil and they all smoke.

927 works great in my big bore. At this point, I won't run anything else in my 5honey.

927 does smoke pretty good. It smokes real good when you run a 32:1 mixture. It is supposed to be biodegradable so I guess it is not an issue. I ran it for a while until I made some changes to my KTM that required me to run high octane fuel. I was not concerned about the quaility of the oil, what I was concerned about was the fuel specific gravity was below the recommended specific gravity for cold weather use and I ride all year long. So I changed back to "regular" two smoke oil.
