    Pretty handy site, you can also see local motorcycle dealerships about mixture and proper storage for mixed fuel.

    During break in you should use 25:1. Then after that if you feel like it you can run a little less oil. I think some guys are even running 42:1. I run 32:1 in order to have a little safety blanket.

    i ve ran 25:1 since the begging with AmsOil Sabre Professoinal 100:1 oil. but im swithcing to Klotz SuperTechnoplate after the rest of this gallon is gone only because i get the klotz at 10.00/qt where the AmsOil is 3.93/pt

    i will also be going to 32:1 or 40:1 so i can run one mix in both my gassers.

    i will also probably switch to Camper Fuel too
