If it's running a little rich on fuel already, 50:1 is actually a richer fuel mix and may increase the 4 stroking, but if you are running an oil that is recommended @ 50:1 mix you can give it a try and see how it does, I'd just ride a few miles and then back home let engine cool for 10-15 minutes and then pull spark plug and see what color it is if you noticed the four stroking was reduced or practically eliminated after changing the mix.

Sorry to high jack here dodgedude, I know toothy was thanking you for your input, I just wanted to comment here hoping to maybe help also.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
