    taco, where does he say he used opti2? judging from the carbon build-up on the piston, it doesn't look like it.

    and even if he was using Opti2, that's just one engine. not exactly cause for panic.

    i could link you to a coupla hundred people's bikes who've blown up that used other oils...

    so it's your fault for selling him a crappy motor...;)

    just kidding.:)

    either way, though, out of this whole epic thread, that's the only one i've seen blow-up.

    them's is good odds.

    For a guy that has never tried Opti-2 in any of your bikes you are quite the expert on it! LOL
    Nothing quite like a little real world experience!

    PS: please use some punctuation, capitalization and a few more
    words as most of your posts hurt my head trying to figure out what you said???

    You sold who an engine that you mixed with opti??? lol You is confused...

    PPS: There is a edit button too so you don't need to make a new post
    every time a new thought pops into your head. lol

    5 x 1.6 oz = 8 oz

    128 oz / 1.6 oz = 80 to 1

    128 oz / 1.28 oz = 100 to 1

    Opti-2 oil pouches are 1.8 oz so they need to be mixed with 1.3 gallons to make 100 to 1 mix.

    That motor that blew was purchased with all that carbon on it mo matter how hard I tried the carbon would not come off. The owner said that there was only 100 miles on the motor but i think there was way more.

    What makes you think it's a failure of the rings?

    Are they broke?
