Default Re: plugs & oil

...erm, a minor correction to the above - most agree that the 16:1 or 18:1 ratio for break in is incredibly excessive and is a(nother) mistake in the instructions.

Most folks seem content with a more reasonable 32:1 with any quality non-synthetic (more for break in is optional and debated), with a synthetic such as Amsoil, you're best off following whatever the oil manufacturer recommends for their product as excessively rich premix ratios can lead to ash & carbon buildup & degrade performance.

Quick n'easy for the plug on a 66cc Skyhawk would be the NGK B6HS or the BR6HS (R = resistor for reducing interference w/radio/digital speedometer) BTW
