Well, we're probable going to have to find someone thats ol..... MORE EXPERIENCED than I am to help with this one, however, it does seem like I remember having to run lower oil ratios like this when I was younger. I'm not sure if they just needed that much oil (can't see why they would) or if it has more to do with the fact that todays oils are so much better that the those oils used in the 80's. For example, the book calls for 32:1 on one of our KX85 race bikes, we a premium oil at 50:1, 38:1 on the two YZ85 (their built to be much higher reeving motors than the KX85).

I don't know, dude. Looking forward to hearing what others have to say on this one.
