Default Yamalube 2s or 2r 700 triple

I just bought a 2000 sxr700 and the previous owner gave me his extra oil. The problem is he had both kinds of yamalube. Is one preferable over the other? And can I use either to top off the oil tank as I ride? Will they mix ok? Sled is going to be a trail sled. Once these are gone I will stick with whichever is best. Thank you!

Ok, thanks for the reply. So mixing the 2s and 2r should be fine? have heard and read a lot of good things on these machines and the triple motors. It sat a couple years so I just had the carb’s gone through. It has 5800 miles and 140-145 compression across all three cylinders hopefully I have a lot of fun miles with it.
