    I've heard that because of the superlube system, that it also provides oil directly to all of my main rod bearings, and converting to a premix may hurt my engine?

  • goudamonkey2 Jun 27, 2009

    now the oil pump is gear driven right off of the crankshaft, should I disconnect the whole pump if its not going to be pumping oil?

  • goudamonkey2 Jun 28, 2009

    Im trying too, but I can't figure it out if I gave you a very helpful or not.

    You were very helpful though, and thank you VERY much for helping me out.

Get a new pump if you want; Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx The pump is in stock at Babbit's @ $104.00.

Otherwise, just drain the oil tank and plug the end (or just remove the tank). Mix the gas and oil in the gas tank 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of oil per gallon of gas.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

    That is news to me. I will check it out pronto and get back with you. I can't feature how this Superlube concept would even exhist because if the crank main and rod bearings were fed a separate oil supply, where does the oil go to considering the crankcase is a sealed system. It would have to build up in the bottom end, thus filling it full of oil and the bike could not run at all that way. But as I said, I will check it out.

  • tombones Jun 27, 2009

    No one I have contacted has ever heard of " Superlube ". Perhaps it is an old wives tail.

  • tombones Jun 28, 2009

    I would just leave it alone. How about a "Very Helpful" rating? It is free and I think it's time.

What does 50 to 1 ratio means and how much gas and oil I need foe a dirt bike


THIS IS VERY EASY TO FIGURE OUT..THIS IS A RATIO OF 2 STROKE OIL TO GASOLINE MIXTURE..FOR ALL TWO STROKE ENGINES ONLY..MOST TWO STROKE OIL CONTAINERS HAVE THE CONVERSION CHART ON THEM FOR THE PROPER MIXTURE..ALWAYS SPEND THE MONEY AND BUY A GOOD BRAND OIL ..ALWAYS PREMIX YOUR GAS IN A SEPARATE GAS CONTAINER SO YOU CAN MIX IT UP VERY WELL BEFORE USING IT IN YOUR EQUIPMENT..NEVER STORE YOUR GAS TOOLS WITH FUEL IN THE GAS TANK..ITS BEST TO RUN EMPTY BEFORE STORAGE..THIS WILL PREVENT THE FUEL FROM GUMMING UP YOUR CARB AND SUCH..SAVES MANY HEADACHES..PLUS SAFER..

2001 Kawasaki ZX-12R engine seized


Hi, Marlon you may have squeaked your top end this is commonly known as "HEAT SEIZE" the piston heats up expands and becomes extremely tight in the cylinder bore and usually occurs mainly on 2 cycle engines right after a fresh top end rebuild, but it can also happen to brand new motorcycles, these are rare instances due to better quality control and education. Overheating failures that cause pistons to seize are many and each one should be carefully diagnosed to prevent future repeat offenders and the usual suspects are:
1. Lack of lubrication due to low or no oil.
2. Among the causes of lack of cylinder, lubrication is clogging of lubricator by dirt or waste, obstruction in oil pipes/lines, leaky check valves, leaky pump packing, broken oil pipe/line, oil too cold to feed.
3. Wrong type of oil used in premix or oil tank.
4. Improper premix ratio you should start with 32:1 as a baseline.
5. New rebuild piston to cylinder tolerances set up too tight.
6. Failure to follow proper break-in procedures with a 16:1 premix ratio.
7. Loose fasteners causing intake, base, or head gaskets to leak or blown crankshaft seal, failure caused by age, overheating or walking.
8. Holes in the intake manifold bent or warped intake flange or reed cage any stray air coming into a cylinder will cause a super lean condition.
9. Improper assembly of reed valve gaskets.
10. Insufficient warm-up time for temperature conditions before WOT.
11. Broken, pinched or cracked fuel line.
12. Carburetor fuel passages clogged or restricted from stale fuel varnish, ethanol sludge, dirt, rust, or fuel level in float bowl too low.
13. Main jet size too small or partially clogged
14. Air filter improperly installed, missing or not sealing.
15. Faulty or improperly adjusted oil pump and or cable.
16. Failure to bleed oil pump after a rebuild/replacement or running oil tank dry.
17. Engine coolant level too low, too old, or improper mixture ratio.
18. Radiator clogged, fins damaged, or faulty cap.
19. No liquid circulation due to failed oil or water pump.
20. Cavitation due to air in oil or coolant system.
21. Water and oil mix due to a blown head gasket.
22. Timing retarded due to faulty CKP sensor or CDI.
23. Improper spark plug heat range (too hot) and or gap.
24. Excessive engine load, brakes dragging, clutch slipping, transmission lubricant level too low or viscosity to high.

Is it ok if i will not use my oil pump?mix oil directly at the gas tank


Not sure what your question is from how it's written?
But what I interpret is you mix your fuel in the gas tank of your bike - to this the answer is simple
NEVER DO THIS always premix in container then add.
If your asking what ratio to mix then it depends what riding you will be doing, race or recreational very hard and fast or just slow riding but most would run 40:1 to 50:1 ratio in a YZ125cc

Problems disconnecting oil pump so i can premix the gas instead!


from what i can remember(ihad one years ago)the ke uses disc valve,as apposed to reed valve.but the anwser is quite simple.if you dont want to remove the pump,just block the lines up with a couple of little bolts,and jubilee clip them in place to stop the engine drawing air in and weakining the mixture.
