Plus ol' greasy small engine mechanic I bought it from said he'd never run it at 100:1- but he does at 50:1. I'll go with that.
What's the worst that could happen? More engine life?
Oh I did error on the side of caution , I broke mine in with amsoil saber , at quite generous ratio's , and what did I get , a greasy stinky mess of a bike.
And over the course of the summer I burnt way more oil than was needed, had a smoky stinky exhaust, that people commented about ...
Oh yeah and that hawt blue smoke trail that follows you .
But yeah I hear what your saying, personally I cant wait to get a new engine so I can test and see what wear I get from opti at 75+/1 ratio.
