1999 cr 125

What should I run premix wise using klotz techniplate synthetic? I run 32:1 but have been reading its different with synthetic?

I run 32:1 in my 99 cr125 with Honda HP2. no issues in many years.

does your bike blow any spooge? i was thinking about going down to 40:1 because of how much i have?

Mine has a small amount when my wife rides it but none when I do. Change your jetting, not your oil mixture to reduce spooge.

well i also ride the woods and cant always go to fast but i normally stay and second and third sometimes but normally second so i can use the power and what should my jetting be in central pa? with an fmf fatty and powercore 2 shorty and v force 3 reeds

I wish I could help you with that. I am running a jd custom needle in mine so what I'm running won't help much. If its only a little spooge and the bike is running well I would just leave it as is.

well its enough that the swingarm shows black and well enough but i havent washed it yet and its only very small amounts not even enough to see come out the pipe up close but need a paper towel to watch it come out very little so i figured since its only a small amount moving down to 40:1 wouldnt be a bad idea im gonna clean it up tonight a little and might put up pictures for everyone since it is a very nice bike in my opinion

The type of fuel/oil, jetting and speed you ride has more to do with the spooge than the oil ratio. If you are riding trails, there are better oils than Klotz, that will reduce the spooge.

I would recommend staying at 32:1, with an injector compatible oil like Lucas, and reduce the jets to Pro Circuit specs.

so go down one size? and we have a big jug of klotz from when my dad had a 250

I revised my post to show PC jetting specs. They went down on all the jets w/ the '99 CR125. This will help reduce the spooge.

do you know stock jetting? i am getting a manual and a few other things tonight

thank you for the post

PC shows the stock jets as:

1369L needle @ 3rd clip

I was running klotz R50 in my yz250 with no issues at the mx track. But trail riding it was "spoogey".

I found out that Klotz has a very high flashpoint and needs to be run wfo. Great oil and great protection but not ideal for trails.

I've switched back to semi-synthetic Yamalube 2-r. I can also reccomend Super-M.

Keep the premix at 32:1 but maybe go up a clip position on the needle.

so it comes from the factory rich?

so it comes from the factory rich?

Apparently, very rich.

well alright that makes sense than about the koltz

why would it come that rich?

why would it come that rich?

To keep people from blowing up their bikes.

that makes sense is that how all 2 strokes are?

CamP that needles for a cr5?

      So Been rebuilding my bike and the rubber mallet just "wouldn't cut it"!!!!
      I had to pry managed to sand down it all looked flat but this seems a bit gappy.

      This is only on the outer edge but I can help worry this is going to leak or get shit into the engine.
      Any help or advice would be awesome thanks

      Hey guys, so cant find much online about cr 250r enduro conversions (nothing recent) so im wondering if it is an option or not. I currently have a crf 250x 2009 and a XR 650r. If i want a 2 stroke enduro but want to stick with the honda line up, is a 2007 or 2005 honda cr 250r a good option. and if so what would need to be done to it to get it up to spec for trail and enduro riding. Thanks very much

      If you own a 2 stroke dirtbike,please reply once. Im just wondering how many people on this site have them.

      Note: This specifically applies to the '92 - '01 CR250 engine, but it should be adaptable to any 2-stroke. The basic idea is to pull the carb and exhaust, plug one and pressurize the engine through the other to look for leaks.
      It's very important to pressure test a 2-stroke after it's assembled. The reason is that a 2-stroke gets it's lube through the pre-mix. An air leak means your engine can run lean. Lean means too little fuel. Too little fuel means too little lube. Too little lube means death to your engine. So here we go.
      First, you need to pull the seat, tank, shock, carb and pipe. Everything you need (other than a tire pump) is shown below.

      The assembly below is basically a 1-3/4" PVC plug (same OD as the intake pipe ID) that is transitioned down to a 0-15 psi gauge, a shut-off valve and a Schrader valve (to connect a tire pump). The 1-3/4" PVC plug is a tight fit in the intake pipe, but it'll fit with enough persuasion. I used yellow heavy duty pipe tape (made for gas systems) to put everything together. I don't have all the technical names for everything, but if you take the pictures to a hardware store, they should be able to help you piece it together.

      The item below is an adjustable rubber freeze plug. They are available at automotive parts stores in various sizes, but the closest one I could make work was a 1-3/4" version. You tighten the nut which squeezes two metal plates together which squeezes and expands the rubber piece between the plates. You have to tighten it a lot, but it makes a good seal in the exhaust port.

      Before you install everything, make sure that the piston is at BDC (so that all the ports are open), the spark plug is installed and all other components are properly tightened. Below, you can see the gauge/valve assembly installed in the intake pipe. Make sure to tighten your intake pipe hose clamp tightly as the pressure will tend to push the assembly out.

      Below, you can see the freeze plug installed in the exhaust port.

      Once you have everything installed as shown, use a tire pump to pressurize the engine to 6 - 8 psi, then close the valve and watch the gauge for any pressure drop over a 5 - 10 minute period. A well sealed engine will hold pressure with no observable pressure drop for 10 minutes easily.
      One common "leak" in a healthy '92 - '01 CR250 engine (and probably other types) is through the powervalve linkage. It probably doesn't affect performance, but it'll sure throw your leak measurements off. To avoid leaks, make sure the powervalve linkage is correctly lubed (per the Service Manual) with grease and Moly 60 Paste during assembly.
      If your engine holds pressure with no observable drop for 10 minutes, you're good to go. If the pressure drops 2 - 3 psi or more over 10 minutes, spray soapy water all around the pressure test parts first to check for leaks there. If you find none on the test setup, start spraying the soapy water around the base gasket, head gasket, center gasket etc. Any pressure drop of less than 2 psi over 10 minutes is your call, but I'd definitely fix it.
      I've had really good results by using Permatex Copper Gasket Sealant on the base gasket, PV cover gasket and reed cage gasket. I don't use anything on the head gasket.

      What value would you say a 1986 cr250 with a freshly plated cylinder and new top end, newer tires, newer chain & sprockets, in overall very good condition?
      I picked up the bike (cheap) a month or so ago in need of cylinder replating & top end. Apparently the headgasket blew internally scouring the cylinder. The crank feels good and the bike is very clean/good condition.
      I havent put the bike together yet (too busy to ship cylinder and order parts), but figure I would have a total of $600 (including bike cost) to get it into good running cond.
      A friend wants to buy it as-is for his 15 yr old 200# kid. What value wouldyou put on it in As-is condition vs with a fresh engine?
