Default Re: First run today!

I wouldn't recommend 50:1 oil ratio unless you're using good quality synthetic oil. Its better to use a little too much oil than not enough. Fouled spark plugs are easier & cheaper to replace than wasted rings and bearings. I always keep a spare spark plug & wrench in my tool bag at all times just for that. 32:1 ratio is what I run and that's with El Cheapo wallyworld generic outboard 2cycle oil. But for luck & good wishes, I add a splash of Marvel Mystery oil to it also(maybe as much as an ounce?), just to play it safe.

Almost everyone using a decent X pipe will report popping, it's normal.
By the holy power of Love, Life & Laughter, I commend you to Go Forth & Be Awesome!
