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. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

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.

Wondering what type of oil to use for winter between 5 - 7 degrees Celsius


The Virago uses 20W-50 oil in warm weather. If you ask any bike shop they will recommend moving to a 10W-40 in cold weather down to about 30ish F, and if you plan on riding down to extreme temps of about 20F and below, then a 5W-30 or 5W-40 is recommended. For the 5-7C temps you list, you could really just use the same oil you use for summer. Just take a little extra time in letting the bike warm up and don't ride it hard the first couple of miles to let the oil come up to full temp. If you prefer to err on the side of caution, then use the 10W-40 oil. I had a Yamaha 650 Classic and I used 20W-50 year round and never had issues as long as I made sure to warm it up properly first.

2004 rmz 250 was riding started to smoke heavily from exhaust bike stalled no coolant in rss but nothing leaking ?


If it was white smoke coming out you may have blown a head gasket. If it is water cooled and there are no signs of external leakage then it only has one other way to go, inside.
If you have an oil dipstick, pull it out and check to see if your oil looks more like a milk shake sludge. Even if you can't see it, try dumping your oil from the sump and take out your oil filter. (unless it is a 2 stroke)

Rmz 250 valve problems


Yes, it is a valve problem. It sounds like a weak intake valve is dishing / stretching due to overheating. The exhaust valves are made to better withstand the heat. Check for cooling problems when you replace and seat a new valve.

No oil being pumped to top of engine.


One oil filler, check your manual or download one from one of the manual sites on fixya. Quantity is written on crancase generally, or dipstick on filler plug, The oilpump, pumps the oil throughout engine.
