Any mineral 2 stroke oil is what I would use. If you are really going to thrash the engine rather than normal road use then I'd use semi synthetic. Making sure the mixture is correct at higher revs is probably more important than the type of 2 stroke used. I've melted lovely holes in pistons with a mixture that was too weak but not that weak that I noticed it :-(

Good Luck,
