If you really want the nice 2-stroke smell use castor oil.  We use it in our
RC Nitro engines and every once in a while, like when we are heading for a
classic cruise night, I'll dump a pint into my 1960 Triumph TR3's gas tank.
Makes that vintage car smell even better.

Yamalube is good stuff.  All their chemicals are.  I used to use their 
case sealant on my british motorcycles
which have especially poor case mating surfaces.  My Triumph didn't leak 
after I was done rebuilding it with Yamabond #4 and #5.

But the Redline oil will make the exhaust smell better.
