    Speaking of which, if you had RTFM, you'd have had the right springs last year already

    Motorex is fookin expensive!

    I would rather find a cost effective solution that will do the same thing.

    One thing about Motul though, my mates like the way is smells. Reminds us of the old school 125/250GP days

    Day two of 2017 Romaniacs I mistakenly filled both mine and a mates bike with mixed fuel at a fuel stop, as I wasn't accustomed to taking fuel from the four stroke and putting it in a two stroke, he was busy loading his GPs so I filled his bike as well, each bike took about 5lt, I only realised my mistake when returning the bottles. I had no clue what would happen to the bikes as they were so unknown, being the very first TPis from the factory.

    Nothing happened, the bikes ran exactly as before, no more smoke than normal, no spooge and they continued to run perfectly for the next two days. The total mix for the tank was probably around 120:1, assuming the mix was 60:1 to start with.
    Yes, I am slow, but.......I can go slow for a looong time!

    Adding 2t will do nothing to the injectors. Can’t say what effect it will have engine side though

    Adding 2t to the fuel clogs the paper inline filter in the tank... other than that no harm but definitely not needed. If in a fix adding mix fuel won't harm anything. More oil in the fuel = less fuel per volume= leaner mix. So bike will run abit leaner in terms jetting

    are you trying to say that you can separate oil from petrol with a paper filter?

    What I'm saying is oil affects the fine micron paper filter in the tank...that's a fact and there is a reason why you never see a paper in line filter on any new premix bike. By adding more oil to fuel it displaces fuel leaning the mixture that's why no bikes jetting is identical....with a tpi the ecu doent know you adding oil to fuel so cant compensate...this is minimal .
    In terms of injector and fuel system oil in the fuel won't damage them...oil lubricates but does cause other problems as stated above.

    All oil filters in cars and 4 stroke bikes are paper element types.
    They seem to work just fine

    Look I do know what I'm talking about and it's my line of work... diesel filter are also paper and work fine... in basic terms a fuel filter is much finer than than oil and diesel measured in microns.

    Simple example.... fuel flows through a jet in a carb, yet on drop of water in the carb blocks the jet can be drawn past... so you cant compare oil filter with a fuel filter designed for different purposes and actually got nothing to do with the material it's made of.

    That's my final answer..
