Question Re: Attn: guys that run 100 to 1

Another thought about cleaner burning 100:1; as I ride through suburban neighborhoods I would rather not spew out typical 2-smoke black smoke. Don't really want to piss off the enviromental minded folks. Bad enough sounding like a gardener and his leaf blower!

Also, what is the price of a top end parts if seized? Maybe $25-30 including piston, rings, gaskets? Doesn't really seem like much of a risk to prove to yourself the merits of 100:1

Oil discussions are a lot like talking religion and politics!
I was wondering the same thing. I have a new port matched motor and I want to use a pure synthetic for brake in. So what the best way to use synthetic oil for break in?
