Anyone ever used the road racing version of motul 800 for moto/Offroad? I could get a whole case for free but I’ve never tried it just curious. Right now I’m using the off road motul 800 and have always used it with no issues running 50:1 in my ‘17 TC250. From the research I’ve done it seems like the only issue is it might spooge a little more at low RPM since it’s designed for high RPM road racing applications.

I'd be curious to know others thoughts on this as well. I use motul 800 off-road in my RM250 and it's a great product.

I would just stick with what you have.

it probably has a pretty high flash point and if you are fast and on the gas like a pro, then it would work.

I have used it with great success and I'm quite slow. When reading up on it, the offroad version should be called a "trail" version really.

The road version caters for an extended period of higher rpm, like if you're riding sand etc.
