Default Re: Gas Oil Mixture how does this effect proformance

You're welcome, Keef. That heavy mix can definitely foul plugs and clog up your muffler. The manufacturers advise the heavy mix to protect the warranty and avoid trouble from seized pistons etc. it's overkill.

I would suggest you read through some of the threads regarding break in procedures as well. Read a bunch and then come to your own conclusion as to where you feel comfortable. Some very experienced builders even suggest to break in with the final ratio that you plan to run your engine with. The choice is yours but make sure your air/fuel mix is not too lean. Check your plug colour to see what's happening in the cylinder.
Just a chimp with a gun and an idea we should be free to ride our machines without gettin hassled by the Man.
