That is really interesting and relevant about how thicker oil can starve a motor for gas and possibly oil, too, if the carb is not re-tuned. This may be significant with the happytime NT carbs, as even a couple extra ounces of oil does make a noticeable difference to me. A lot of the people who are dissappointed with their motors on break in, using the thicker ratio, might be pleasantly surprised when the break in is over and the bike is getting more gas than oil, and runs a lot more pleasantly.
