The previous owner said yamaha oil mixed at 32:1 but he barely rode this bike and knew very little about it. Also I wanna change the motor/tranny (the same stuff has been in there for years of mostly sitting, he didn't even know what it was. The speedometer is not attached, but I have it and the cable, haven't tried to hook it up yet. I paid 1400. Was this a good buy?
Not a thumper, you know. Two stroke! Raymond @ Hall's Husky (one smart dude when it comes to vintage Husky) recommends Golden Spectro for pre-mix. I run at 45:1. And they really like good race fuel!
