SOURCE: 196cc /6.5hp Honda clone generator engine burns oil.Can this be fixed by replacement of top compression ring?

Any engine that burns oil should be given a compression check and then have the compression rings replaced if they leak.

check that you are using chain bar oil and not engine oil as that is the main reason for excessive oil usage
make sure that there is the small restriction at the exit point
if that is missing , then that will be your problem

take off any side covers to look for a small oil tank. This bike should have a pump that meters this oil into the gas. Put your 2-stroke oil in there.

What is the oil capacity for a 1987 FLHTC Electra Glide Classic

I think it's three quarts but the tank has a dip stick on it. After draining the tank and changing the oil filter, pour three quarts into the tank. The dipstick has two marks on it. Check the level with the bike on the side stand. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Top the oil level off to the lower mark and recheck once you've ridden the bike.

Goodl Luck

does this engine have a low oil shutdown unit on it

if so check the oil level an top it up it could be interupting ignition

be sure your tanks are full and connections are good and tight
brush soapy water around connections to see if any have a leak

if not oil level shutdown , then sounds like a fuel problem

suggest have a gas serviceman take a look

these units can be tricky to solve

I just bought 01 sportster 1200 and the oil tank is filled with light brown milky oil that smells like gas 1st harley help please

Light brown milky oil that smells like gas is not good. Drain the oil from the tank and refill it with three quarts of fresh oil. Remove the oil filter and take the spark plugs out of the engine. Using the starter spin the engine over for about 20 seconds without the new filter on the engine. Then wait about five minutes and do it again. The reason for the short spin time and the longer wait is that you don't want to burn up your starter. Keep doing this until you get fresh clean oil coming out of the engine. Put the new filter on and replace the spark plugs. Now,top off the oil tank to the lower line on the dipstick with the bike on it's side stand. The lower line on the stick is "FULL COLD" and the upper line is "FULL HOT". Do not overfill or you'll wind up with a mess. Then fire the engine and let it run for a while. Then turn the engine off and let it sit. If you look in the oil tank immediately after shutting the engine down, the oil will look light brown due to the foaming on top of the oil. Allow the foam to disapate and it should look good.

Now, if gasoline contaminated your engine oil, it may have contaminated your primary oil as well. I'd change that too. Drain the oil and add one quart of specified type of oil.

Good Luck

In the control box of an evinrude 115 vro v4 is an alarm why does it go off every 15-20 min when the motor running

The warning horn on a V.R.O. system ( variable ratio oilier) warns you of three problems. (1) LOW OIL. means the remote oil tank in the boat is near empty or empty(2) NO OIL. means there is no oil getting to the V.R.O. .problem is, clogged line or the diaphragm in the V.R.O is blown.(3) OVERHEAT. means the engine is overheating. The V.R.O is you lift and pressure pump for fuel and oil. plus it mixes the oil and gas to proper ratio. Three warning, three senders. LOW OIL sender is in the remote oil tank in your boat. NO OIL sender is in the V.R.O.. and the OVERHEAT sender is on one or both cylinder heads of a the engine depending on the year model
