Default spooge

     

I was doing a little research on maybe switching pre-mix to maybe Amsoil. I am running HP2 now at 32:1. But I have a bottle of mx2t so I will probably try that since I can get it locally and it sounds just as good from what I have been reading in here. My question is this. Right now I am jetted at sea level 59-80 deg. air screw 2 turns out, slow jet 55, needle clip 3 pos., main jet 175 running HP2 at 32:1 with Exxon 93 octane. I don't foul plugs and it looks good. But I seem to get a some spooge blowing all over my fender and shirt and all over the silencer. So I want to try switching to the mx2t at 40 or 50:1 to try to "clean" it up some do I need to change any of my jetting other than my main when it gets warmer or just leave it? Thanks

Both the Amsoil and the Mobile 1 are great oils IMHO. I currently use the MX2T whcih is very clean buring and shows very little build-up. The carbon deposits that I found on my top-end could be wiped away with a shop towel. There was very little wear and after 40hrs my bikes was only down 5psi on compression and the ring end gap only grew 0.004".

By reducing the amount of oil per volume you've effectively added more fuel/gas to the air/fuel mixture. Figure out what premix ratio you're going to run and jet for it. By using pump gas you will never be able to eliminate the spooge 100%. By dialing in your jetting you can reduce it. It might be close now but if it's spooging as bad as you make it sound then maybe it could be closer. As far as what jetting specs change vs. temperature, it really depends on the temperature spread and other factors such as humidity. Generally I will see temperature variations of up to 60 degrees which will affect the pilot jet (some times), needle clip position and main jet.

If you are already at 32-1 it would be hard for me to believe your jetting is really spot on and that your float is as well, if you're "spooging", again,,assuming that it is jetted spot on for the way you ride.

The caveat to spot on jetting is that little changes in temp, as in lower can cause a lean condition. So, if you are happy with your bike the way it runs,,and it is reliable,,,maybe you just have to live with a little bit of the dreaded "spooge". I still don't know why it is thought of as so bad.

Well by reading that maybe I am pretty close. Maybe the spooge I am getting is normal amounts it's not like gobs of oil just looks like misty oil spots on my shirt and a little heavier spots around the fender and oily around the silencer. I am just relating to my old 90 CR500 I ran Bel Ray at 50:1 and don't remember any residue at all. Thanks again

It not bad just a little messy for a Honda they aren't suppose to get "dirty",LOL.....the bike runs strong and is very reliable. Just thought I might be able to eliminate some, oh well... I think I will switch to mx2t at 40:1 and try that.
