I have a 2002 CR 125. Runs great but has black fluid that comes out of tail pipe after running. I feel it is running too rich. What should the air/ fuel mixture screw be set at?

The mixture screw is used to get the transition from idle to throttle up smooth, and not to bog.
Sounds like your jetting is to rich, or too big. Read your plug as it's probably black. Then go smaller on your pilot jet, run it and read it again. Make sure you run 32:1 mix, and jet the bike to match this.

What cause the engine to run rich and black smoke coming from tail pipe?


hmmm sounds like the fuel pump is more of the issue as its sending too much fuel into the motor making it run rich or the gas that your using is too rich for the motor itself

2002 oldsmobile bravada,have a strong gas smell in the air cleaner


Take the air cleaner off and open the throttle (have someone hold the gas pedal to the floor) and look down into the intake manifold, if you see gasoline, the Fuel Pressure Regulator may be leaking sometimes there are plastic fuel lines inside that can leak also. When either of these leak, the engine should run REAL BAD/RICH. Black smoke coming from tail pipe.

Stars and runs no prob. splutters and stutters in


If this is something that just started, I'd check the spark plug and ignitions system first. Then move to the air filter and carburetor. Check the silencer in the pipe to see if it's clogged up.

Oil out of tail pipe


Hi,
This is not uncommon.
Things to check first would be your fuel mixture. You might be running a bit rich. You should be using a mix of 3.5 percent synthetic oil.
Being a 2 stroke, the tail pipe cartridge needs replacing from time to time, as it does collect oil with time. If the bike is a bit noisey change the packing.
Always remember that there is oil in fuel used on 2 strokes.
Lastly check the type of oil you are using. Mineral oil does tend to be a bit messy as the mixture requires around 5 percent oil.
Most off road stores now keep good LOW SMOKE oils such as Motrex.
Stick to good synthetic oils !
Cheers
Jon
