i had good luck with yamalube 2r on my old 2 stroke (atk406, 50:1). i was planning on running the same oil.

80:1 seems pretty low on oil to me, considering modern japanese 2 stroke mx bikes run anywhere from 32:1 - 50:1. Does anyone know what engine setup as far as bearings and materials allows 80:1 and if the fantic engine runs well on 80:1? or should i just stick with 50:1.

thanks for the replies, except for fester, why bother posting nothing useful? i traded another bike i wasn't riding for this as i've always wanted to give trials a shot. it runs great and it came with no manual and i can't find one on line so i'm, asking.

Mike

depends on what oil you use.

i'd just ask the guy u got it from. The gasgas runs 100:1 because the crank bearings are lubed by the gear oil. Most modern trials bike are in the 80:1 relm. it's because of the low revs. A MX bike needs more because it's running at high rpms.

50:1 using high quality oil is what they used for that bike when it first came out.. The air cooled older bikes need more oil, but 50:1 was what I remember.

That's what we all used in our air cooled Trials bikes of that period.

OOPS!! but now I see that is a 95 Section, I believe that was water cooled.... I would still stick with 50:1 until you find out for sure.

so it sounds like 50:1 is a good starting point. do any of you run more oil when you are trail riding?

thanks,

Mike
