For the past year I've been using Motul 800 Road Race 2-stoke oil in my RD500. Yesterday I read it is designed for pre-mix and that if you have an autolube system you should use Motul 710. It doesn't say anything on the bottle about being pre-mix but it does on the data sheet. Has anyone else had any experience with either of these two oils? Or can anyone shed any light on if this is really the case or not?

Id your findings are correct Steve, this the piece you've read?

You could always email the UK importers and they will confirm 100% but as that is from Motul, id say that's pretty conclusive.

I suppose that's why my plugs are always oily . Better drain it out and buy some 710!

I confirm.
Motul 800 must only be used with premix not with oil pump.
This oil is too much thick.
I only use Motul 710 in my bikes.
The Motul 710 can be used either with premix or with oil pump.
