What mixture should I run? (02 cr280r)

Recommended Posts

Just bought an 02 cr250 bored out to a 280 with a fatty pipe and another fmf exhaust on it, im not sure about the jetting as he got the back for a trade from a guy who owed him money.The seller hadn't even started it in over a year. It started on the 3rd kick, but he doesnt remember what fuel/oil ratio he used.

Help please?

32:1 is always a safe place to get started. That is usually what the manual calls for. But everyone will have a different idea of what is necessary and what is over kill. Really, just pick a ratio and jet accordingly, because that will be the real deciding factor.

The factory owners maintenance manual specs 20:1 using Honda oil or equiv. The Honda service manual specs 32:1.

Most synth's are between 32:1 and 40:1, pick your fav oil and jet to the oil mfg's spec

32:1 is fine for a 250 and it's also fine for a 500, it will be fine for your 280. 👍

Alright thankyou guys, And to the the guy who who wanted the ride report. I will try and do that. Just going to give it a good service saturday dumping all the fluid and check everything over and put on some new sprockets.Then I'll ride it.

All ive done so far is about.5 mile to make sure it went through all the gears and that brakes worked.
