Question about 2001 Honda XR 650 R

1 Answer

I have a few two stroke motorcycles and I need to know fuel to oil ratios. I am having trouble reading the charts, I don't understand what 16:1, 24:1 and so on means- Is there a specified amount per gallon? How many ounces for a 5 Gallon tank? And does it change everytime depending on how many gallons I am completely confused. Please shed some light on this topic for me- Great thanks

Carbburtor adjustment to lean or to rich


Hey Errol, Proper carburetor jetting can ONLY be obtained by reading the spark plug..This is NOT something an amateur can do..You need to know how to tell if the timing is too advanced, if the timing is to retarded, (two stroke - how to tell if your oil/fuel ratio, is correct -how to tell if it is too lean, how to tell if its too rich)... how to tell if the fuel/air ratio is too lean or too rich...when the spark plug is black, you have to be able to tell the difference between "oil black" and "rich fuel black"...
...now, if you can do this.. tell me what motorcycle this is about.. why do you need to know about jetting.. PLEASE give me more details... reply on here...

Do you know the gas mixture ratio for a cpi oliver 50 scooter


Its been a while since I've seen a two stroke scooter but usually there is a oil tank that you keep full and the scooter takes that oil and mixes it with the fuel worry free. You don't have to pre-mix it like weedeaters and chainsaws. Just make sure that oil tank is always full. I found this manual:
https://absolutelyscooters.net/manuals/CPI%20User%20service%20manual%2050%20cc%20scooter.pdf

On page 5, it shows where the oil tank is and on page 34, it states in a footnote on the bottom of that chart, that they specify synthetic oil. Keep a bottle of two stroke oil in the storage compartment at all times and check when you refuel. The engine will over heat and lock up if you forget to keep the oil filled.

Does this engine require mix gas?


Peter
you are too short on details like make model , 2 stroke or 4 stroke
read your user manual or look on the petrol cap as most have the ratio on the bowser emblem
so for an answer, it is most likely a 2 stroke and so-- yes-- it will require a oil/fuel mix in the tank
if you do not know it , start with a ratio of 40:1 ( 40 fuel -1 oil) and only use 2 stroke oil not normal engine oil
run at rpms and there should be a trace of blue smoke
too much smoke cut the oil back to 50:1 and no smoke increase the oil to 30:1
go google and type in user manual for ( make and model ) --and the ratio will be in that print put

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..

What is the oil gas ratio


The oil gas ratio is the proportionate amount of 2 stroke engine oil mixed with gasoline to be used as a fuel for the smaller (mostly) commonly used 2 cycle engines on chainsaws and weedtrimmers. Here is a oil gas ratio chart.

Need fuel to oil ratio for husqvarna 223L trimmer


Here is the scoop copied from the Husky site:

Two-stroke oil
• For best results and performance use HUSQVARNA twostroke
engine oil, which is specially formulated for our aircooled
two-stroke engines.
• Never use two-stroke oil intended for water-cooled
engines, sometimes referred to as outboard oil (rated
TCW).
• Never use oil intended for four-stroke engines.
• A poor oil quality and/or too high oil/fuel ratio may
jeopardise function and decrease the life time of catalytic
converters.
• Mixing ratio
1:50 (2%) with HUSQVARNA two-stroke oil.
Hope this is helpful, let me know if it's not and I'll come at it some other way:)

WHAT IS THE CORRECT FUEL TO 2 STROKE OIL RATIO FOR A 2006 KAWASAKI KX85


It all depends on what type (and brand) of two stroke oil you're using. For example, some non-synthetic two stroke oils are supposed to be mixed at a ratio of 20:1. While most synthetic oils are designed to be mixed anywhere from 36:1 to 100:1. Your best bet is to follow the advice of the folks at your dealer as to the type of oil to use - and then follow the recommended mixing ratio as detailed in the oil manufacturer's instructions.
