Question about Motorcycles
It will ruin it, because as gas gets added to the oil it will thin out substantially fast, causing major engine ware. the only good thing is if you had any sludge build up or tarnish from the age and old oils chances are its pretty darn clean now. the problem is probably bad rings and oil seals on the pistons or really bad valve seals letting gas and air leak back into the heads and in your oil. depending on how many miles are on the bike I would suggest a top end rebuild and if you don't have the know how to measure and check the heads when there off send them out to get inspected. I just did a top end on a Harley for somebody and the parts cost after needing new valve seats new exhaust valves new valve guides and seals new pistons rings gaskets and amsoil per the customers request was 1158.00 before labor. which was the better part of a full day 8-10 hours .

32 to 1 gas and oil > Two Stroke Engine Oil ( not Motor oil ). This equals 4ounces oil per gallon of gas.
Use premium unleaded gas. No Ethanol gas.
10w40 motor oil for the gearbox. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

1st check the fuse(s) are OK.
Sounds like a dead battery, either old or not being recharged by system.
The voltage across it should be at least 12.2 volts switched off rising to 12.5 -15 volts with engine running
If battery OK then check connections & wiring from battery to ignition switch & back out into the loom
Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

Sounds like the ecm might be locked up or a breaker has gone bad. Try unhooking the battery for 10 min or more and hook it back up and lets see if the ecm resets. Let me know how this goes and we can go from there.
