Question about 1986 Honda NS 250 R

1 Answer

Unsure about gas setup

Hey .. i just picked up a honda ns250r 1984 .. can you tell me if the gas mixture is premixed before i put it in the tank or will it mix itself... ps it is two stroke..and what oil do i use?... That was some very good info......I too have a 86. It has been re-sprayed before I got it but the front forks are red, so maybe...maybe was a brand new import??
Anyway, Im lazy & new to bikes so Im going to have to ask a really stupid question....I need to top up my gear box (?) oil (its on the right side but Im meaning where the kick start is) ..do I use any old tranny oil or what?
Cheers for your help chief.........

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would appear that there are 2 questions/users on this post. Still, on your bike, normally, the tank hold plain gas, not premixed. The 2-stroke oil (2T) has its own reservoir attached to the right side, on the frame. The filler would be exposed and relatively easy to access and fill up.

On the Gearbox oil for 2-stroke engines with a wet clutch, SAE 10W40 is the standard.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

What does 50 to 1 ratio means and how much gas and oil I need foe a dirt bike


THIS IS VERY EASY TO FIGURE OUT..THIS IS A RATIO OF 2 STROKE OIL TO GASOLINE MIXTURE..FOR ALL TWO STROKE ENGINES ONLY..MOST TWO STROKE OIL CONTAINERS HAVE THE CONVERSION CHART ON THEM FOR THE PROPER MIXTURE..ALWAYS SPEND THE MONEY AND BUY A GOOD BRAND OIL ..ALWAYS PREMIX YOUR GAS IN A SEPARATE GAS CONTAINER SO YOU CAN MIX IT UP VERY WELL BEFORE USING IT IN YOUR EQUIPMENT..NEVER STORE YOUR GAS TOOLS WITH FUEL IN THE GAS TANK..ITS BEST TO RUN EMPTY BEFORE STORAGE..THIS WILL PREVENT THE FUEL FROM GUMMING UP YOUR CARB AND SUCH..SAVES MANY HEADACHES..PLUS SAFER..

I changed the oil lines and now I need to prime the pump to get oil into the carbeuretor.


There are a couple of ways to approach this. One is to remove the spark plug and turn the engine over several times to purge the air out of the lines. Some people opt to use a little premix, where you mix about a 20 to 1 ratio of two stroke oil and gas. You only need a little, like 8 ounces max, to place in the empty gas tank. You fire the engine up and run it a few minutes on the premix, and then top off the fuel tank with fresh fuel. The premix protects the engine while the oil line purges of air.

I need to know the oil gas mixture for a 2000 yamaha pw90. I couldn't find my make and model so I just choose one so please ignor. It wouldn't let me continue without picking one.


If your model is the 90 then it should be a 4 stroke engine you put 10w30 or 10w40 oil in the engine and gas in the tank. Do not mix oil into the gas tank on a 4 stroker you will knacker the engine big time.

If however you have a definite 2 stroke model, you have 2 oil tanks one for the gearbox, and the plastic one under the seat for the engine.

Gearbox tank fill with 10w30 oil the plastic tank under the seat with 2 stroke oil. The 2 stroker mixes the oil and gas so you don't need to.

Hi, I am considering purchasing a 1984 Honda vt 250cc everything is in working order except the speedo the owner has had a small digital one fitted. The fuel tank will also need repairing or replacing...


Getting parts will be difficult. You can coat the inside of the gas tank with a product called " KREEM ". This will stop the leak permanently. Google kreem and you can find where to buy it and even view videos on how to use it. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

How do I remove the false gas tank on a 1984 honda goldwing


You can pick up a complete owners/service manual as well as the parts manual on cd. I got mine for my GL1100, then when I upgraded to my GL1200, I picked up another set from the same person.
Contact Wanda G at wickedinaz@cox.net. I believe she still sells the cd's for around $7.00 including the shipping anywhere in the US.
When I got mine, she included both the owners/service manual and the parts manual. Pretty big to download, at around 200mb.
Manuals are good enough, I just rebuilt my engine, and all 4 carbs and I'm no mechanic.

Unsure about gas setup


 It has auto lube, the oil bottle is under the seat. Use any full synthetic 2stroke oil. Some bikes may have been modified to run on premix and this would be worth getting checked out by a bike shop. If its been sitting for a while its a good idea to put a tank full of 40/1 premix through it anyway.   Look after your bike, they are becoming very rare and many engine parts are no longer available. The NS was one of Honda's premium products, hence the "R". It had hand matched engine parts and was very expensive to produce.  There were only 35 new red/white bikes imported  into NZ in 1986, removed from the Japanese market  to make way for the NSR. All other NS's imported, blue/white, were second hand imports.   I have had mine from new and it was the first sold in NZ, prepaid before it landed. I have a factory Honda manual for the NS250R. I'm happy to help you with tech info you need. Just post your Q.

Paint protection


the 3M protective film works really well, I have it on the nose of my GTI. It will add some sheen, but I highly reccomend it
