    I've heard all sorts of conflicts about this online.
    I want to know if it is okay to use synthetic oil before the 300 miles recommended for my Lexmoto Milano 125 EFI, because I am using it at the moment, and my scooter has 11 miles on it.
    I changed the oil because it had been sitting in the scooter for 2 years and I was changing all the fluids so it was part of that.
    (I do want to point out that I haven't done my CBT yet, I've just been learning how to ride on my parents' farm which has a mile long private road)

    Was this a bad move?
    I wanna know what the general consensus is about this.
    Thanks!

    Nah it's fine.
    It's not so super important on a scooter.
    It's more important if the motor is rebuilt.
    Check the level again in a few days too...
    You would be surprised how quick they can burn oil when new..

    Ive used synthetic, semi-synthetic and even old type mineral oil and never had a problem
    Most forums say you can basically use any engine oil in a chinese scoot
