Do 50cc 2 stroke engines have engine oil?

Yes and no. 2 strokes do not have oil like a car, meaning in the crankcase. the oil is mixed with the fuel and introduced into the engine through either the carburetor or an oil injection set up. the oil/fuel mix is burned in the engine. that's why 2 strokes smoke so much.

and on most small two strokes the gearbox is a separate compartment containing engine oil like a regular engine.

What is the difference between SAE 30 oil and 10w30 oil?

Using the correct oil in your car is very important. The bearings in your engine are designed with very tight clearances that require a specific weight of oil running through them.

The numbers on your oil indicates the oil's thickness. For example, SAE 30 weight oil is heavier than SAE 20 weight oil. So you are probably asking, "what is the 'W' all about?" The W indicates a multiweight oil, where the "W" indicates WINTER use. SAE 30 weight oil acts like a 30 weight oil at all temperatures. So when it gets really cold that 30 weight oil gets really thick. It will no longer flow through the tiny clearances your engine requires. An oil rated 10w30 will behave differently when it is cold. When the temperature of 10w30 drops it acts like a 10 weight oil. That way it will still be fluid enough to flow where it needs to flow. Once the engine(and oil) warms up to temp then it will act like a 30 weight oil.

What is squish in a 2 stroke engine?

Putting it simply as the piston moves upwards on the compression stroke the fuel / oil / air mixture is compressed from a large volume into the much smaller area between the top of the piston and the cylinder head as it reaches TDC. The volume of this area is the squish volume. In other words it has been "squished". The velocity and heat generated in this process combined with the geometry of the head and piston affects the combustion process as it is pushed towards the spark etc

Does a 1993 Yamaha FZR 1000 need engine oil and transmission fluid separately....How much Transmission fluid do you put into it?

Generally, unit construction engines ( of which this is one) ,do not require a separate addition of oil into their transmissions. They share the oil with the engine and clutch. Therefore selection of a crankcase lubricant should meet JASO MA requirements so as to be compatible with clutch lining materials. Never use oil with any form of friction modifier's.
