I have a yamaha XT 600 1991 when i fire it up i pull out the choke and works fine when i push in the choke it stats crackling from the exaust, not working good, and if i dont pull more gas it will go off

Your carburetor is most likely running lean. Get the jets cleaned (or heck, just replace the durn things while you're at it) and it should be fine.
Note: Most of the big-bore dual-purpose motorcycles come from the factory purposely jetted lean, no matter what manufacturer puts them on the street. This is to keep them from running at their full potential (which believe me, will peel your eyelids back). You will find that a simple rejetting with a slightly larger-than-factory-spec jet kit will make you want to kiss your mechanic when you get it back.

Just bought the bike yamaha xt 125 r what oil do i put into it ? petrol light is on although just filled it up? are the lights supposed to stay on ? when ignition turned on it says oil inspec? do i...

It sounds to me like it is in need of a service. I would get a dealership to service it and then advise you on what to do in the future for yourself.

What type of oil should i put in my yamaha 225 xt dual sport?

1 quart of JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10W-40 is a good year round weight. Synthetic oil will run cooler and shift better. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the bottle, it will shorten wet clutch an transmission gear life.

I have a 1991 yamaha tenere.The oil light is permanently on

I'd check the oil pressure switch (cheap fix) if it has oil pressure. Have you topped up the oil too much from worry about the low oil pressure?

Well since it's a 4 stroke I can't mix it with the gas. I drained out all the old oil and I just need to know the correct porportion of oil to re add to my bike

The proportion is 100% oil, don't mix it with anything. Put in two quarts, stand the bike straight up and check the oil. Add one half quart at a time until it registers full on the stick or in the sight glass.

XT 125 oil problem

Hi Pete!
I used to have a Xt 500 and loved it to bits, the oil filler then and presumably now is on the right side of the engine by the kick start (If you have one) it is a large black plastic screw topped item which will unscrew (Anticlockwise) to reveal a long shaft (Dip stick).
There you go!
Remember to keep bike upright to check level?
Any concerns please get back to me!
