As I posted earlier if you are a playbike rider, using excessive amounts of the wrong type of 2T oil doesnt matter a great deal. But as almost all of the excess oil will find its way out of the exhaust, unless you are into lots of smoke, there is no real purpose for the added oil.
The amount of BS linked to dyno testing is very great, and running the correct amount of the right sort of 2T oil for any particular application, will always been improved performance and less need to service clogged exhausts...............If you forget the BS, then running the right oil and mix ratio, really is a win-win situation.
