Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Everything is running well and i found my fuel mixture (24:1) is way too rich and is not only four stroking, but on hot days oil drips out the exhaust. My next tank will by 4 quarts in a gallon.

Can't wait for it to cool down so I can go on long rides again!
I think you meant 4 OUNCES per gallon. I run 3 to 3 1/2 ounces to a gallon. And some say thats even too much. So far I've never blown an engine. I'll run 4 or 5 ounces a gallon for break in, I don't take ANY chances. Thats the cheap stuff though. Some VERY GOOD oil takes less.
