Never owned a Honda moped. Fred,who wrote Fred's Guide, owned one and liked it.

I'm a believer in that 32:1 and never over 40:1. Those bearings need oil and kitted engines need MORE oil.

I've never burned a bearing ,any bearing, with 40:1 or more ratio of oil. A lot of people here though burn out bearings and I have always wondered if that COMMON 50:1 was the cause.
