i've been experimenting with my oil ratio. i have found i get the best power at 16:1 when jetted correctly. i still prefer 24:1 for the no spooge. doesn't oil help seal the rings and lube the bearings? wouldn't more oil help longevity as well? how are you guys making such long lived bikes with more power if you are running less oil? wouldn't the added heat of friction and less bearing lube kill the bikes sooner? i'd say i have a few thousand miles on my bike running the lower ( more oil) ratios and no carbon build up inside it either. i notice more carbon at higher ( less oil) ratios than at lower ( more oil) ratios. is my bike some weird fluke of magic, or the cheap oil i run some magical stuff? how do y'all get more power with less oil?
