Default Re: engine cover for cruiser? help quieting motor...

from what iv'e read before these engines are low compression so the higher octanes are actually worse for it since higher octane takes more pressure to combust. as for oil any 2 stroke oil will work, but again from what iv'e read, you want to go with regular 2 stroke for break in period (about 2 gallons of gas), and then synthetic is best. opti-2 2 stroke oil seems to be the best but iv'e never used it.
