Yamalube-R,semi synthetic. Its whats for dinner,Ive always ran it and its always worked. 32 to1 because Im an old school 2 stroke guy. Never had to clean a power valve yet,never any buildup of any kind.
Ive gone 4 years of abuse on a KTM200 and it still had 160 lbs of compression.

80 to 1 is a rich mixture,not a lean mixture. The bike is burning the gas to make power,not the oil. less oil = more gas per gallon of mixed fuel. Bike just has to be jetted for whatever is running through it. Bike will run richer on 80 to 1 then it will on 32 to 1.

I know these are tough things to hear sometimes.
Some bikes around at times
