    I've used Bel Ray MC1 full synthetic then about a year ago to save money I switched to Lucas semi- synthetic.

    I started at 20:1 for break-in and used full synthetic even though some say not too.

    After break in I have been running 32:1

    I use that in the bikes I ride myself and recommend it to the others I've built bikes for (50:1). One of mine just hit 14,000 miles and only now starting to lose compression. Also for the Rotax 2-strokes in my ultralight aircraft. Causes some of the other pilots who spend big bucks on synthetic and "special" blends to have fits. :)
