if you have to mix it to 40:1 it wont hurt it to do this for one race....

sorry for minor jack - so if a properly jetted 2smoker doesnt smoke, then does smoke indicate jetting is too rich or too lean?

That's assuming the entire engine is fresh and tight. Then properly jetted, it will smoke very little once warmed up.

But don't use the smoke as a guide to your jetting.

:lol:

Too rich dude

Not quite that simple

is your top end fresh? Is it spooging at all? Usually, the manufacturer of the oil will tell you how to mix it. Follow their instructions.

I raced with my oil at 50:1 like it said on the bottle and didn't get any excessive smoke and very little spooge. You gotta dig into it to figure out what's going on.

Assuming acceptable engine condition, jetting causes smoking so leave your ratio alone and learn to jet. I ran my YZ125 at 24:1 and after the engine was up to temp it didn't smoke at all.

PS next time use the search function.
