It’s not a conspiracy
My experience is based on actual experience since 1970s
Not by being taught from someone who just has to published a paper to teach
I worked at a marina that was a authorized service center for many brands of outboards. servicing new and used outboards .
Engine manufactures that had the break-in period to use double amount of oil for break in period (25to1)
All came back needing powerhead changing because rings were stuck in the grooves and build up underneath the ring damaged cylinder walls/premature wear.
Service bulletins were issued for force/Chrysler and other outboard manufactures do not put more than 50 to 1 oil ratio during break in
The problems disappeared,
Polini issued a service bulletin 12-15 years ago to decrease the amount the oil used in puch kits to the ratio of to 60 to 1
Because problems with the thin small ring getting stuck and buildup underneath ring made it bulge out it causing the ring to snag
Too much oil gums up the ring makes them stick and score that’s just what it is.
if you use a high amount oil in the gas mix you need take apart your topend frequently to clean rings and other things like exhaust ports.
That’s why every new used bike I get
one of the first things I do to the engine besides service magneto is to remove the top end to inspect,
Most times one or two rings are seized/stuck because people think more oil is better
Car engines get damaged by putting too much oil in them too because the crank hits the high oil level whipping air into it making for less oil pressure not more like people think!
More oil then what manufacturers recommend in the mix is not better and should only be used if you’re racing and you take apart your engine frequently
