As far as pre-mix, KTM back in the day recommended Dura-lube.
Champion now owns the Dura-lube formula. They make it in air cooled
and water pumper. I run it 50:1 and always Have for about 25 years.
Any good gear oil will work fine, just change it often. I run Rotella
15W-40 in all my bikes with good results. I change it every 10-15
I've never had any overheating issues with my smokers running 50/50
Prestone. Again keep it clean and full. You probably have a vent plug
on the radiator without the cap. Be sure to take it out when you fill.
Parts cans sometimes be tricky. UFO might have plastic and I've had
other manufactures parts match up as well. Find a good local parts
that can help you out. They can be worth their weight on gold. I've
purchased bearings from my local industrial shop.
Old KTM 2T's will go a long time if taken care of. I rode my 360 for 16
years and 30,000 miles before retiring it. I just hope I can get that
out of my 500!
