Problems disconnecting oil pump so i can premix the gas instead!

Not too long ago a neighbor of mine gave me a 1979 KE125 2-stroke Kawasaki dirt bike that had been sitting in his garage for a while and I have been repairing it ever since. And a problem I have currently stumbled over is how to disconnect the oil pump from the bike so I can premix the gas instead since the bike uses the Superlube System. Your advice would be great!

From what i can remember(ihad one years ago)the ke uses disc valve,as apposed to reed valve.but the anwser is quite simple.if you dont want to remove the pump,just block the lines up with a couple of little bolts,and jubilee clip them in place to stop the engine drawing air in and weakining the mixture.

I have a 1998 Yamaha GP 760 waverunner. 2 stroke engine. It's been sitting all winter. Not kicking over when I start. I read to use a premix instead of starter fluid, but what is the premix ratio?


Mary, you have to give a lot more information as to make , model , year, 2 or 4 stroke,capacity before anyone can answer this
modern 2 stroke engines use a metering pump for the correct oil/fuel ratio and it is not premix
and what is wrong that you need starter fluid in the first place
post again with all the information and some one will be able to help

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..

My kawasaki dirt bike smokes alot


WELL IF ITS A TWO STROKE THEY DO THAT..IF YOUR NOT FOULING OUT YOUR PLUG LEAVE IT ALONE..IF YOU ARE FOULING, LEAN YOUR MIXTURE OUT SOME (LESS OIL TO GAS) HAVE A FOUR STROKE ENGINE IT COULD BE A FEW DIFFERENT PROBLEMS,RINGS,VALVES,GASKETS, BASICALLY OIL GETTING WHERE THE SPARK PLUG IS SO SOMETHING IS FAILING..PSS..THEY MAKE TWO STROKE OIL.THAT SMOKE VERY LITTLE ..KLUZ IS A EXCELLENT TWO STROKE THAT SMELLS LIKE COTTON CANDY..VERY PLEASANT ODER.HOPE THIS HELPS,THE SPELLING MAY BE A LITTLE OFF ON THAT BRAND NAME..PERFORM THIS LITTLE TEST..AFTER ENGINE IS RUNNING AT IDLE SPEED SPRAY ONLY WD40(ITS NON FLAMMABLE ON CONTACT) ALL AROUND YOUR ENGINE,IF IT REVS UP THAT'S A VACUUM LEAK WITCH LEANS OUT YOUR ENGINE AND CAUSES FAILURE.FIX ALL LEAKS..OF COURSE AROUND CARB BASE. ..MAINLY BASE GASKETS AND HEAD SURFACES..YOUR CHECKING FOR LEAKS..ANY VACUUM LINES..

Tomos dirt bike


is the bike a 2 stroke or four stroke four stroke is just straight pump fuel,if it is a two stroke then it is either premix where you mix two stroke oil into the fuel or there is a oil bottle on the bike uesally under the seat where the oil and fuel mixes itself,a two stroke motor has no valves and has a expansion chamber exhaust which means it is not a staight pipe it blows out in size in the middle of it .if it is a new four stroke ask the dealer wether to use a higher octane fuel for it cheers i hope this helps cheers pete

Hello i have a 1976 kawasaki ke 125. i don't know how to fuel the bike and i already put a new top end on it. how do i fuel it, do i put oil and gas at the same time, or gas in the tank and oil in another...


take off any side covers to look for a small oil tank. This bike should have a pump that meters this oil into the gas. Put your 2-stroke oil in there.

What is the oil mixture ratio for a 2005 kawasaki 250


Use TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL in the pump. If not using an automatic oil pump, then 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.

The oil pump on my 1977 kawasaki ke175 went out, what do I have to do to convert the bike to a premix? And what oil/gas ratio should I use?


Get a new pump if you want; Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx The pump is in stock at Babbit's @ $104.00.

Otherwise, just drain the oil tank and plug the end (or just remove the tank). Mix the gas and oil in the gas tank 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of oil per gallon of gas.

Unsure about gas setup


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.

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.
