Question about 2003 kawasaki KX 250
I mixed my 2 stroke oil too rich,it was smoking. I have changed the muffler packing,which was oily,and ran it for a while without the silencer on it trying to burn off the excess oil but it still smokes.Can i take the muffler off and clean it or what should i do ? Thanks
"Learn to like smoke for awhile. Smell the aroma". Pardon the humor. I couldn't resist. Chances are there is oil built up in the crankcase. It is going to take some time for the oil to dissipate. How long? I don't know. It all depends on how much is in there. Cleaning the muffler is no help since the oil burning is coming from the crank not the muffler. If you are careful, and keep a vigilant eye, you could cut the gas/oil mix in half to 64 to 1 instead of the normal 32 to 1. That would mean only 2 ounces of oil per gallon instead of the normal 4 ounces. Let the crank add the rest. This will help burn the crank oil excess, but BE CAREFUL. When the crank drys up you had best not ride until more oil is added to the gas.

4 oz of oil per gallon 32:1

It's a 2 stroke. It's supposed to smoke. Yes that extra oil causes alot of extra smoke but I would not run a lower gas to oil ratio. Usually 30 to 1 is a good medium. If it's not fouling the plug then just ride the hell out of it and it will cure its self. If smoke bothers you, then maybe you should consider a nice clean and smooth 4 stroke. Good luck.

Why do you want to disconnect the vital oil supply? If you are experiencing too much blue smoke or plugs oiling you can adjust the amount of oil fed to the engine via the secondary oil pump cable,the one that splits off from the throttle to the carb.
If you disconnect the cable it also stops the oil pump sending oil to inlet, winding out adjuster increases oil screwing in reduces.
As for ratio? trial and error as No knowledge/specification is available for Oil injected engines, poss 25:1 to start but don't blame me if you seize?
Quality synthetic oil is always a must, did you know you can also purchase smokeless two stroke oil?
Please remember the Fixya button if my efforts are respected?

Break in is just riding the bike easy for an hour, shifting through the gears w/o high revs. Now go out to the woods and have fun. Change gearbox oil after about 20 hours of riding to remove metal contaminates from the full break in.
Top rating due on this answer! Thanks arenacross91!

Hope you drained the oil and also changed the oil filter.
This problem of cutting off is a carburator/fuel related issue.
I guess the fuel might not be pouring in to the float chambers faster enough.
Try this, remove the air -filter and thn start the engine and as it is about to cut off, block the intake(by your palm) at the carburators and see what happens...taking care not to over block it as the gas may pour out and also flood in the combustion chamber rendering it to shut off due to to much fuel.
If it does respond and stay running thn the problems is tht the carbs are not getting the gas as required and probabley you may have to recheck the float level, the float pin,carb synchro, air-fuel mixture.
Check the pet- c o c k too.
Hope this helps!
