If the motor is a two stroke, (and i am sure that it is), you need to stop riding until you fill the tank with TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL . Riding without oil will quickly cause the engine to seize up. 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.

Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

That is the oil injection tank. you need a 2 stroke oil preferably Yamalube but any 2 stroke oil will work.

I have a 1972 Yamaha R5,made into a three wheeler(ATC).What is the correct fuel/oil mixture??

The R5 had Autolube....which is automatic oil gas/oil mixing....there was an oil pump in the crankcase, with one cable from throttle running to the pump so pump stroke varied with throttle opening.....the oil tank for the injection oil was under the seat on the right side.
