Default Re: Boat Oil in my bike

I second what mapbike said about lean conditions. Lean means too hot. too hot means you will burn your engine up fast. you want to run at least a little rich for the breakin period, then back it down to the proper mix. you can tell how youre running by looking at your spark plug. if you see any grey or white, youre running lean. if you see black or chocolate, youre running rich. if you see anywhere from tan to honey brown or toasty brown, you have your air fuel mix right on. when breaking in, you wanna see a chocolate color. after break in, you wanna see the tan to toasty brown color.
