You are confusing yourself. Gearbox oil does go in via the dipstick. Engine oil goes in under the seat. The engine oil they are speaking of is called " TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL ". It is designed to mix with the fuel by being pumped into the carb intake system along with the fuel. Any motorcycle shop, auto shop, lawn equipment shop, gas station and many grocery stores and convience stores will have this oil.

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.

What kind and how much oil should i put in the crank case of my 1975 suzuki ts 185 and would to thin oil cause it to lose compression?


ts 185 is a two stroke, the crank case oil is actually only the gearbox oil, the volumne is caste onto the side cover(like 750cc).near the filler cap.
The engine oil is mixed with the fuel and is pumped in from the oil tank under the seat.
The wrong oil or no oil in the tank under the seat can cause it to lose compression. and cause engine damage.
Visit a bike shop and get motorcycle gear oil20w50 for gearbox. and two stroke motorcycle engine oil for the oil tank.
As it is quite old someone may have removed the oil tank, thinking they will make it go faster or save weight or another stupid reason, if this is so you need to mix the two stroke oil with the petrol when you fill the tank at approx 25-1 ( 25 litres petrol mixed with 1 litre of oil)

I have a 2006 Yamaha Roadstar that is showing oil level is empty but when started it is showing full. Why is it showing empty when cold?


The Yamaha Roadstar has a dry sump oil system. What this means is that the oil is stored in an oil tank to reduce the size of the engine. By storing the oil in the tank (which is under the seat and has the filler cap/dipstick, the engine does not need a sump under the crankshaft to store the oil. In this type of system the oil is pumped back to the tank after making its rounds through the engine. When you shut the bike off the oil will settle in the engine until you run the engine. The procedure to check the oil is to warm up the engine and allow it to idle for approximately 3 minutes. Do not rev up the motor during this time as it will cause the oil level to not read correctly. After shutting off the motor, check the oil level and adjust it to keep it in the proper level on the dipstick.

Engine oil in yz 250


On Two-strokes you mix the oil and the gas together. If it has an oil pump the bike will do this for you if you fill up the oil tank.

Two stroke oil


Use the factory " YAMALUBE " oil. Engine oil is not a big deal but you can't go wrong if you stick to factory products.

Oily watery stuff coming out off the exhaust, oil pump is set ok


is this bike a yamaha rd 350 twin cylinder 2 stroke? if so, its air cooled and you should not be getting a ltr of water.. but it is common for them to have a "oily" fluid come out the exhaust because it is a 2 stroke. but not alot. it comes from the engine not burning all the oil gas mix. does the engine spit and sputter? make sure there is no water in the tank, make sure the air filter is clean and buy hotter spark plugs. also adjusting the fuel air mixture may help. hope this helps...
