SOURCE: dirtbike is smoking

Hi DZ

You may have too much oil in the fuel mix. It should be 32/1 for the RM. If you put too much oil in, the bike will produce excessive smoke, and foul the plug also. Always use a good quality Two Stroke oil. Your Bike depends upon it. Happy to answer any more questions you may have.

In many bikes the clutch work in oil and if you use an very good oil like sintetics with may be can cause a slipage clutch not when it is a new one but whne it have an use inportant the discs are more thin and the antifriccion oil can cause slipage more in the better oils like sintethics.

Good quality oil is the cheapest form of insurance!!!
there are realy great synthetic oils around now!
it also depends on the weather extremes that you ride in!!
10 w 40 is a safe bet!

On the side of my 86 kx 80 2 stroke there is a hole with a pluge on it do i put tranny or motor oil in it and what fuel mixture should i use(would out board oil work


The plug on the side engine casing is for 10w40 motor oil. NEVER use synthetic lubricants or oil with 'special' additives. They can mess up your clutch. The 10w40 motor oil is shared by the gearbox and the engine because they are a single unit.

Use 4 ounces of two stroke engine oil for every gallon of gas. That will give you a 32 to 1 mixture which is the industry standard. If the outboard motor is a 2 stroke (most of them are), the engine oil is the same. Note the difference > Engine oil verses Motor oil. Motor oil in the gearbox, Engine oil in the gas.

Do not get the ones with "Special" additives. NEVER use synthetics. Some of the additives and most of the synthetics will swell the cork on the clutch friction plates. Then the clutch will not disengage and now it is time for new friction plates. Use 10w40 motor oil and you are doing good.

I need to know what weight oil to use in my 03 kawasaki kx 125


Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

Repsol MOTO Gasoline Motor OIl,4T,Sintetico synthetic blend 10W40


Repsol Moto 4T Sintetico Synthetic Oil - 10W40

Synthetic blend lubricant with high thermal stability, designed to meet the needs of the most technologically advanced 4-stroke motorcycle engines.
  • Excellent starting and lubrication in cold conditions due to its low viscosity.
  • Meets JASO MA API SJ requirements.
Its fine to change your oil with synthetic, Just be sure that you use synthetic from now on... I don't think its advisable to switch back to regular oil after using synthetic.
