I am amazed at how little oil the engines actually need. The Vertigo trials bikes that are FI 2-stroke run at 120:1 ratio. I run the trials bike at 80:1 and many run 100:1. I could probably do the same but just hard to bring myself to that low of an oil ratio. Enduro bikes I run at 60:1. The worst engine damage I have had was from running a high flash point oil (Motul 800) in a Gas Gas enduro at 50:1. The excess unburnt oil gummed up the power valve and required me to pull down for a full service. I was around 120 hours at that point and was running fine with no plans of a rebuild. Blow by was minimal and could have pushed many more hours if the power valve had not gummed stuck. Unless you are running shifter carts or MX bikes at WFO all the time the high flash oils only cause more issues. The Motul 710 that is what Wingfixer is running as injector oil is a lower flash oil so I look forward to see what his conditions are come freshen up time.

A little over 100 trouble few hours so far (where's that knocking on wood emoticon? ). And you all know how gentle I am on equipment..... :angel:

I plan to do at top this winter. It should have 120+ on it by then, so over double the recommended overhaul interval. I'll be sure to post my findings here.
I'd like to watch/help/pass beers when you do the top to see what is involved.
I'll bring it to your place to do the top, it's only about a 6 pack job. :deal:
F*** work.

6-pack for both could end even before you open the tool box, so I guess it should be per person :killingme: :cheers:
