I need to get some soon for my scooter and wondered what brand you would recommend.

I use Motul 510. If my scooter was kitted for performance I would probably go with 710.

As it is I only have a SIP Road exhaust. Never had any oil related issues..

Castrol is available at Halfords. Been using Castrol Power1 Racing in my PX since 2007, and am happy with it.

I've been using Castrol Power1 Racing in my new PX since I brought it a few months ago , not cheap but was advised you only get out what you put in ...

I still have a few bottles of Mobil 1 Racing 2-stroke something-or-other that they don't make any more...but as soon as I run out, I've got this http://lucasoil.com/products/2-cycle-oil/lucas-semi-synthetic-2-cycle-oil waiting to be tested. I've used several Lucas products on my vehicles in the past & they seem to work quite well as far as I can tell.

I have to ask one thing, I've noticed on a few threads that people start off a post with a word written in bold font, on this occasion "Persil". What's all that about

Any synthetic or semisynthetic blend made for Motorcycles and Scooters with an injector system is fine. Avoid anything with a picture of a lawnmower or weed whacker on the bottle, but in an emergency, you can use just about anything.

The problem with cheap 2T oils is that they create a lot more carbon during the combustion process and over time this wil clog the exhaust port and exhaust pipe.
