Make sure you have recommended spark plug. 2cycle bikes require a hot plug in order to burn fuel efficiently. I'm not that familiar with your bike but it seems too new-ish for the rings to be bad already. Another thing is... that you can't just use any 2cycle oil... you must use the manufacture's recommended oil for the fuel. Many of these machines are picky about which oil is used. Fuel to air mixture many times is the problem... this has to be just right on a 2cycle... they are touchy if they don't get the right amont of air. I hope somehting here will help you to find the answer or at least eliminate a few things if nothing else :)
40:1 is generally the ratio for this bike, as long as it was jetted correctly for that ratio and hasn't been messed with.
If you don't know the bike's history, check your silencer isn't ejecting any excess partially burned oil and there's not excessive smoke, also check the spark plug to
see how its burning. It should be chocolate brown.
The standard mix is 32 to 1. This means 4 ounces of two stroke engine oil per gallon of gas. The lower the ratio ( like 60 to 1 ) the higher the risk of seizing the engine. Do not use motor oil, only 2 stroke engine oil.
I think the official ratio is 32:1 but a range of 25:1 to 40:1 is acceptable. If you run it wide open and hard most of the time, use the 25:1 or higher oil mix. If you run it pretty easy, then you can go up to 40:1 or less oil.
Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives.
Use Two Stroke ENGINE oil in the pump. If not doing an automatic oil pump the mix the gas and oil 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of two stroke ENGINE oil to one gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil in the gas. Only two stroke engine oil.
