We always ran my sisters Banshee 40:1 and it ran great for years. With that said we ran a good oil.

Ahh what the heck. I run Klotz Benol at 40:1 with octane booster mixed with 93 pump gas. My Octane should be around 96-98 with the booster. Everything runs good, don't have any plug fouling problems or excess spooge.

Doesnt the ethanol they add to gas act as an octane booster?

I may be wrong, but the way that I understand it, the ethinol actually helps draw oxygen into the cylinder and helps things burn cleaner. It can also cause jetting problems if your engine is not jetted for that type of fuel. As for the oil ratio I run, I have found 40:1 to work just great. I like running Klotz oils with the benol, but when funds are tight the Yamalube works pretty well too at the same ratio. For air cooled engines I will drop to 32:1 for those.

Well, I found a good bargain on ebay and bough 2 gallon of benol for 32.50 each so I'm happy with it and then out of curiosity and for old time sake, looked up for some castrol R40 and holy sweet, found some and bough 4 gallon of it to (Cant beat that castor smell in an old bike). I'll run the castrol R40 at 24:1 with supreme added with some octane booster. Yes I know that she might leave some gums and smoke a bit but what the hell? Both my bike (RM250 83 and YZ490 89) dont have a power valve to gum up. I'm going out for a ride this weekend and I'll check my brand new plug when I'll get back. I'll let you guys know how it'll turn out. I never got a problem back in the eighties with the R40 and hope that it'll be the same nowadays.

Default Amsoil Sabre

I just bought a KX100 for the boy and they were running Amsoil Sabre at 80:1 have not had it apart but the tail pipe has oil present clear back there. Would it be safe to say the rest of the components before it look similar? lol

HP2. Just bought the bike and did a top end. There was minimal maintainence on this bike and the clylinder still had cross hatching. I was so surprised, I called the seller back (who I talked to twice), just to ask what oil he ran. It was HP2, I just ordered 8 bottles.

Wow this is insane, NONE RUNS MOTUL 800 2T???? This is the BEST 2 stroke oil ever designed. I pull my yz 125 apart at 100 hours for a top end and it's still running strong, looks new, WITH NO CARBON PERIOD! (I run anywhere from 32:1-40:1 depending on temp.)

You know if I took an engine apart that had a plated cylinder that had been built since 1990, and it DID NOT have cross hatch still visible I would really be shocked. Seeing 'hatch' in a plated cylinder really ins't much of any indicator of wear IMO. Oh, nothing really new on the oil front anymore, but of course anybody who doesn't run what I do at the mix I do must be totally confused and I feel sorry for them. LOL, oil conversations are at least entertaining, aren't they?

I use yamalube at 32:1 because it has my bike on the front of the bottle. I have also found that my air filters last longer when using yamalube.

i've used yamalube air filter oil as well and don't care for it. it is very slick and oily as opposed to the fully sythetic air filter oil i ususally use(maxima) which is very sticky and tacky.

i use torco gp-7 at 32:1 in my yz125. runs clean, the plug i've had in all season looks perfect.
