The brown oil is water mixed into the oil. If I recall correctly the DT bikes were air cooled. The water would be condensation in the gearbox. Just drain the oil and ride more often. If the bike is water cooled the two seals on the water pump shaft are bad. This is not a major repair. The bike probably needs new crank seals. Go ahead and clean the carb as water and trash may have accumulated restricting the fuel flow to the motor. Install an in-line fuel filter.

Use TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL in the pump. 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.

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.

If the tank is rusting, you need to seal it up. Google kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to www.http://www.4secondsflat.com/Fuel_Tank_Sealer.html

White smoke in a yamaha 125 ttr dirtbike


Hi, Anonymous your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Ok, i recently purchased a DTR 125 R 2000 model with running problems The bike will start with the choke on, then die with the choke off, the fuel/air mixture screw was mashed up so i purchased another...


Sounds like a vacuum leak is leaning out the mixture....check the intake between carb and engine for leaks...another source may be tjhe crankcase seals are leaking.

Oil coming from exhaust


2 stroke poop! A certain amount of this is normal due to the oil/gas mixture you're burning. However, type of 2stroke oil used, amount used, and jetting of the bike can all affect the amount. If it's coming all the way out the back, it's time to repack the muffler. If this is the case, you'll probably notice your bike is a little louder and raspier than before. This also impacts performance negatively and, eventually, the inside of your muffler can start smouldering.

Fuel and oil mixture on 2 stroke engine. and how can i increase its power and rpm


32 to 1 is the proper fuel mix > 4 ounces of two stroke engine oil per gallon of gas. Advance the timing a couple of degrees for more rpm. The power wil come with the revs. Boring the cylinder and installing a larger piston will help. Also, consider installing fresh crank seals. Rejet the carb one or two steps larger and move the jet needle clip downward one or two notches.

Yamaha dt 2003 wont start was working fine then ran out ov petrol then put more petrol in and 2stroke now wont start it started then was smoking bad for like 10 seconds then died now wont start at all btw...


sounds like you may have a air pocket in your fuel system. try cracking the fuel check on the bottom of the carb and make sure you have fuel. the only other thing i can think of is fouled plugs. I know it sounds funny on a 2 stroke but i have seen it happen

Motor does not run fast.


Is your gas 93 on up? Is your air filter clean and oiled up? Is it two stroke with oil&gas mixture right.
