I realize that it may be running too rich, but what about the fact that oil is getting on the rubber of my rear tire? Does anyone have any advice on this for me? Thanks

I've used exhaust hose to extend my exhaust past my wheel. You can also point the hose away from the wheel.

I also get less oil splatter, now that I use 100:1 mix of fuel and Opti-2.
