Default gas mixture

ok, so i have been reading through the forums and enjoying my bike but here is the deal...i have seen alot of different opinions in different places about gasil mixture...i have a 48cc grubee skyhawk and have been running it at 25:1 (after break-in) and lately the power has been getting worse...i am going out now to check for air leaks and clogs and things (first chance i have had in a couple weeks)...the question then is...the directions i have say 16 to 18:1 for break-in ( i used 16:1) and 25:1 after (which is what i use now) but i see alot of people saying i should go up to something more like 40:1...the oil is Quicksilver brand premium 2-cycle outboard oil (not sure if that matters)...any opinions?...should i go to a richer mixture?...50:1 maybe?...40:1?...
