Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
Tipped snow machine on it's side going slow in soft snow, it ran for a minute before stopping. upon getting it upright and restarting it...it now smokes alot...changed gas,oil..checked all lines befor refill drove fast , slow....still doing it.....oil lit now comes on when i start it even though i am getting excessive oil smoke....rechecked gas, it's not mixed.
if it is using oil, then u got stuck rings, which keep running the bike and keep a eye on the oil, or you need the top end rebuilt.

This model is a four cycle engine meaning that it does not a mix of gas and 2 cycle oil. You just fill it like your lawn mower, gas and fill the crank case with oil

"Learn to like smoke for awhile. Smell the aroma". Pardon the humor. I couldn't resist. Chances are there is oil built up in the crankcase. It is going to take some time for the oil to dissipate. How long? I don't know. It all depends on how much is in there. Cleaning the muffler is no help since the oil burning is coming from the crank not the muffler. If you are careful, and keep a vigilant eye, you could cut the gas/oil mix in half to 64 to 1 instead of the normal 32 to 1. That would mean only 2 ounces of oil per gallon instead of the normal 4 ounces. Let the crank add the rest. This will help burn the crank oil excess, but BE CAREFUL. When the crank drys up you had best not ride until more oil is added to the gas.
