SOURCE: Oil Leak at exhaust flange

No major problem. The proper mix is 32 to 1 gas and oil. That equals 4 ounces of 2 stroke ENGINE oil to one gallon of gas. Do not use MOTOR oil in the gas. 10w40 motor oil is what goes in the gearbox. Tighten the exhaust flange.

SOURCE: weak oil in stator this ok?

Hi ridge,

good move will be have the recoil replaced and have the seals around the stator cleaned / investigated / repaired.

here is a good section from Supermoto Junkies on SX525

SOURCE: how much oils should i put in my ktm 250 sx 2

2 stroke Mx bikes generally have(one or more of) four different methods of checking gearbox oil level.
The most common way to know is it is usually stamped on the clutch cover near the oil filler plug. It will read in CC's. 1cc equils 1ml. Sometimes they have an oil dipstick attatched to the filler plug. They have two lines on them. The bottom line is the lower level, the upper line is the full level.
The third style is an oil window situated at the bottom rear of the clutch cover, again with a high & low mark.
The fourth style is a bolt or screw on the clutch cover(with a alloy/copper/fibre washer behind it. For this type you remove the screw & fill thec gearbox untill oil starts to leak out of it with the bike upright.
Your bike will have one or more of these oil level checking systems.
If your totally unsure, ask your KTM dealer.
Hope this helps
Regards Andrew Porrelli

What makes a 2005 Yamaha YZ 450 F Blow Oil Out The Crank Case Hose Into The Breather And White Smoke Out The Pipe Thanks

Hi, Shawn_luke_I oil level readings are taken when the engine has reached normal operating temperature and the usual suspects are:
1. Overfilled oil tank dipstick reading should at or below full.
2. If the sight glass is full you are running to much oil.
3. Excessive blowby caused by worn out piston rings.
4. Piston rings never properly seated.
5. Faulty breather valve or system.
6. Pinched or clogged breather line/hose.
7. Clogged or failed oil filter.
8. Contaminated oil dirt-rust-water etc.
9. Excessive oil foaming.
10. Wrong oil type not designed for your bike.

The unit just started burning oil like crazy on start up. Tons of white smoke and oil coming out of the exhaust. Its a 4 stroke motor so im not sure what the problem is. Any help??

Remove the Oil Breather from the side of the engine near the base of the valves and clean it with both engine degreaser and carb cleaner. If the reed assy sticks on the breather the crank case will over pressurize and port oil into the breather. Also if the engine was over-serviced with oil it will present the symptom you describe. Sometimes a carb problem will allow fuel to leak into the crank case after sitting for a long time and the oil will have gas in the oil. Sniff check the oil. If it smells like gas you may also have a sticking carb float or float needle.

If you need more assistance just repsond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa, Kelly

Excesive oil coming out exhuast

This is normal for a 2 stroke and not a problem at all. It's just a build up of 2 stroke oil that acumulates i the the packing in the muffler.
Nothing to worry about, and no solution to fix it really. You can re pack your muffler with clean packing, and try running a little less 2 stroke oil in your mix. I would recomend using a synthetic 2 stroke oil, with a mixture of 50:1 this would prevent some of the mess from happening.

I had no compression with my 08' KTM 250 XC-F and took it apart to find it was all carbon'd up. I'm guessing it was cause the breather from the valve cover to the intake was blowing oil. I put new piston...

it should line up at tdc when the piston is on the compressing stroke at the top off the barel so basically when its just about to spark get back to me if not ok
