Default Saito 125 gas conversion - Oil recommendations?

Hey all. I am converting my saito 125 to gas using the CH Ignition's kit. What kind/brand of oil do you recommend that will not affect valve buildup?
Any other tips? I realize the temps will be hotter and I will be opening up the cowling more to allow more flow.

Thanks. Looking forward to your suggestions.

Quaker State 2 cycle? Honda HP2? Others? What works the best?

What ever you use remember that you still need the same oil content as the glow fuel.

The conversion is awesome. It runs so much smoother and idles very reliably. I am using my last two bottles of Evolution oil [recommended from Horizon for my FG14] but that brand is out of stock. I will look for the redline as well.
Thanks for the suggestions.

I contacted CH Ignition recently and they told me the conversion kit would not fit the 125, because the case isn't the same as the 120. Did something change? I would really like to convert my 125s.
