Default Re: oil is coming form muffler at the base by the peddles

24:1 is an excellent break in ratio and will definitely drip.
If the oil you now use is designed to be mixed at 50:1 and you are happy with it then stay with it.
I forgot to mention that a carburetor that is tuned rich can also contribute to excessive oil dripping. That said, dripping is still normal, even at 50:1.
If you switch to Opti2 or a similar synthetic that is designed to be mixed at 100:1 you would be hard pressed to ever get any drips at all.
I solved my drippy problems on my 2 stroke bike by using an exhaust that goes all the way to the rear of the bike.
It can drip all it wants to now, I don't really care.
