Re: newbie bike...
Correct info. That 16:1 number that the kit instructions give you is wrong. Start with a 24:1 ratio and after a couple of gallons go to 32:1.
I wish there was some way to get this message out to everyone who installs one of these 2 stroke kits on their bike. Too bad we can't get every vendor/seller out there to include this information in every kit they ship. It would save new builders a lot of trouble with fouled plugs and poor performance from the get-go.
