Anybody got any ideas on using 2 strkoe oil in WR400 fuel ?
It has been suggested to me by someone who races a YZ400 regularly , that it is a good idea to run a very small amount of Synthetic 2 stroke oil with the fuel ( about 1 to 2 ml per litre of fuel )
this apparently acts as an upper cyclinder lubricant , and also helps prevent valve seat wear .
Anyone got any feelings on this ??

I read an article in a magazine about a year ago regarding this very thing. They said to save your money. All that adding 2 stroke oil to your fuel will do is gum things up in your 4stroke more quickly. Like the spark plug. I'm not an expert on this but that article stuck with me for some reason.
