Useful - what's recommended these days for premix? I think Fizzies are 20:1 but a friend of a friend reckons what with modern oils etc this could be less. Any views? Anyone? Hmmmm?

fuuly synthetics you can run much less oil,35-40:1 is fine,20-1 was for the old type mineral two stroke oil which most dont use nowadays and is too much oil really.

also dont put "abit extra"in the tank it leans off the mixture doin more harm than good........

I use synthetic oil all the time in my premix on my fizzy bikes , I use Putoline MX5 racing synthetic oil and I always use the 20:1 ratio and I also dyno test my bikes on a regular basis in the set up process to get the carb/mixture set up properly and running 20:1 on synthetic oil causes no problems whatsoever -and I dont suffer any lubrication problems/seizures on that mix- the only time I did was earlier in the year when I tried running less synthetic oil (30:1) in a rebuilt bike as a trial just to see how it performed and I found it started to slow down and starting showing signs of nipping up but I didnt let that happen - I immediately reverted back to 20:1 mix which then totally resolved the problem.

dude that's not exactly right. If you put too much oil in it leans the air fuel mix out, even if it is right when you have the right amount of oil in there. Put too much oil in and it will run lean, regardless of whether the air fuel mix is right when running the correct oil fuel mix.
