    I used to run 32:1 but now run Amsoil at 100:1. I get plenty of protection and no carbon build up. Each time I've taken my motor apart, its been clean and in great shape. I havent found an oil yet that burns as clean, but still protects as good.
    Running 32:1 is a good ratio as long as you run a good quality oil. Belray, or Maxima are good oils.

    As for a banshee forum.. Best one thats ALL banshee is www.bansheehq.com There is also www.bluetraxx.com but you will have to wade through countless stupid posts and tons of 12yo punks.
