what premix to use with a kx125

what premix to use with a kx125

depends what you are using it for. but no higher than 40:1 offroad and i think 32:1 on the track. i would run a maximum of 32:1 no matter what i had, i believe in the more oil with proper jetting theory, but thats just me.

If I remember correctly the manual calls for 32:1 for the 03 however Team Green recommended jetting changes using 40:1

If you change your ratio you may also need to rejet.

If you are running less premix you will be running fuel rich, If you run more premix you will be running fuel lean

here's a warning from team green:

CAUTION: Specifications are obtained using 92 Octane pump fuel mixed at a 32:1 mix ratio. Your results will vary with the use of different gasolines, oils, temperatures, altitudes or mix ratios. Team Green does not recommend the use of low octane pump gas, aviation fuels or octane boosters. Use of these products may cause engine damage or failure. Recommended for sea level to 3,000 feet above sea level.

I run 50:1 in my 03 with no problems. I use belray h1r

is it ok for it to have some oil from the pipe to the brake

thats called spoog that runs out the end of youre silencer.best thing to do is to pick a good quality oil,amsoil,belray,motul,pj1 ect and pick a oilto gas ratio an then stick to it(being a small cc motor an high strung try some thing between 32:1-40:1)i personally use 36:1 in my kx250 an son yz85.then you are going to have to play the jetting game.the oil coming out of the can could be you need to repack it or jetting.the yamaha 2 stroke forum has a right up on how to jet a bike,go read it its very useful.but most important is to pick a oil then a gas oil mixture an then jet for it then stick to it.hope this helps a little.kawie:ride:

I always ran Amsoil Dominator at 50:1 and it was great. I followed PC's jetting specs. Prior to leaning it out, the bike was nasty rich regardless of premix ratio.

32:1 is safe, use a good quality oil like the others say.

The oil your seeing is spooge, and its probably from running rich

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 Kawasaki kx250 that died suddenly on me the other day. all i can get it to do is backfire every once in awhile. Tested the resistance and everything of the magneto and stator with a multi-meter and all is good.  Coil is new oem Kawasaki the reeds are brand new vforce and the top end and carb have been completely rebuilt.  key on crank is intact and all the timing marks are lined up. I hooked a timing light to it and spun the motor over really fast and found that it is sparking way to late.  The service manual says that it is supposed to fire 14 degrees before TDC but it is sparking way after TDC.  Im thinking its a fried CDI box since its the only thing i wasnt able to check.  Any help would be appreciated

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 kx 250 2 stroke and it wont start.  it only backfires.  I was out riding it one day and came up to a stop so the bike was just idling and it started to try and die so i revved it up a few times then let it die and now it wont start back up.  It only pops or backfires when you kick it.  Its getting good spark and i just put a brand new plug and coil in it. I took the reeds apart and they look like they're brand new.  It was running great before so i dont know what happened.  Im thinking it could be a fuel problem even tho the plug is a little wet if you take it out after a bunch of kicking.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.
      KX250 2002 $800-$1000?

      YZ125 2000 $1250

      KTM 400SX 2002 $1200

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
