I used 6 ounces of oil per gallon of fuel. If you want to run a little faster you can use 5 ounces of oil per gallon of fuel but the engine will not last as long.

If its a 2t I would say between 1:40 and 1:50 depending how you ride. 1:40 is quite rich and 1:50 fairly lean.
Hope this helps!

I have a 2008 KTM 105 SX and I don't know how much


Use 50:1 ratio or 2% oil in the mixture.
That means 20ml oil for every 1000ml (1lit) of gas.

Need gas/oil mix for Homelite 330 10604A, HJ


To the best of my recollection the 330 is an older model saw and should be running about a 16:1 ratio. 8oz. of oil to 1 gallon of fuel. Hope this helps.

Note: You're always better being a bit richer (lower ratio) than you are leaner (higher ratio).

Engine Compression for Stock '08 KTM 250XC


Hey E..
176psi is fine... I have been a factory trained Yamaha for 43 years...I have seen engines run fine with 90psi..(not racing engines).. Compression is a good indicator of overall top condition of an engine. Compression Ratio is different than compression psi. Now that you have established your baseline.. you want to maintain it!!
....If you want the engine to last.. run at least a 28:1 OIL/FUEL ratio.. even a 24:1 or 20:1 is better *... settle on a ratio and RUN this ratio at ALL times... if you are fouling plugs.. get a PROFESSIONAL that KNOWS how to "jet" an engine.. you should be able to drop the main jet one size..and maybe raise the needle jet clip UP one groove..this will lean out the mixture to the correct FUEL/AIR ratio and you won't foul spark plugs and the engine will LAST a LOT longer.. >> ... *Remember..the two-cycle oil you mix with the gas ALSO lubricates the main crankshaft bearings and the rod bearings.. (replacing those are $$$$$!!)
.. If you have more questions, reply to me on here...

My 2006 ktm 250 sx-f smokes blue when i pull away


Is this a 4 or 2-stroke?
4-stroke = bad valve seals of piston rings
2-stroke = oil/gas ratio too 'oily' OR air filter clogged.
