Frying the engine is the danger of going too lean.
If it were a 2-stroke it would most likely be oil-injected, so leaning the mixture would not effect the oiling.

Running overly lean will cause problems, but tuning for optimum performance isn't going to make it get less oil than it needs if you have an adequate fuel/oil premix ratio (if it's not oil-injected).

I run 32:1 premix in all of my 2-strokes including my Derbi GPR. It's surprising, but more oil actually will give you more power - up to a point.
