I run 40:1 in my car all the time.

Your thumper will be just fine. In fact, several oil companies have experimented with a 4-stroke fuel lubricant that is designed for 100:1. It is designed to help cushion the valves.

Yea you're fine like the others have said. Actually it can help! I know some people run just a touch of 2 stroke oil to prevent there jets from clogging. It's actually a little trick, I forgot why it works, but I tried it on my old DRZ and it seemed to work.

I've ran my 4 stroke lawn mower on leftover/old 40:1 since it was new (5 years ago). It still runs fine. Doubtful that a much more minute amount will damage anything in a 4 stroke bike motor.

Hell, I don't think my lawnmower has ever had any straight gas in it...:lol:
