    Bel-Ray H1-R ....what ratio for RM250?

    I'm done with this post. Dude lives on TT, no way I or Suzuki are getting through to you. You're smarter than the engineers who built the bike at Suzuki. Go ahead run your 250 all day at 50:1 for whatever reason you believe is better. Just don't ever crack the throttle wide open, baby it all day long.

    You got one thing right though the '08 was last year for RM250 in USA

    I'm not your Bruh and I'm proving that your 50:1 ratio is rediculous everytime I post

    Bel-Ray H1-R ....what ratio for RM250?

    2007 Suzuki RM250 the last year Suzuki made a 2 stroke 250 for USA This text is lifted from a online 2007 manual: FUEL AND OIL RECOMMENDATION This motorcycle is of the two-stroke design, which requires a premixture of gasoline and oil. Gasoline: Use only unleaded gasoline of at least 90 pump octane (R/2 + M/2 method). .... For Canada Use only unleaded gasoline of at least 95 octane (Research Method). .... For other countries Engine oil: MOTUL 800 2T FACTORY LINE OFF ROAD or equivalent Two Cycle Racing Lubricant. Mixing ratio: 30 : 1 Fuel tank capacity: 8.0 L (2.1/1.8 US/lmp gal) A mixture containing too little oil will cause piston sei- zure. Too much oil will cause excessive carbon forma- tion resulting in preignition, fouled spark plug and loss of engine power. Mix fuel and the engine oil at the ratio of 30:1.

    What I should have said is I would never run 50:1 in my bike '02 RM250. Which again calls for 32:1 in the manual and we are in the Suzuki 2 stroke section. And as you mentioned earlier in above post that all Suzuki's called for 32:1 until their last production in 2008

    What I read in the article is that 32:1 or 40:1 is best for average rider and that 28:1 is best for mx racer. I would never run 50:1 in a bike

    Also what the article is saying is that if you ride your 250 like your grandma rides, then mix it at her ratio 50:1 But if you get on the throttle (and I know when I go "woods" riding that there are never any open fields or areas when I can open it up) that it's better to have your ratio mixed at 32:1 or 40:1 And if you race (god forbid) it might be wise to mix even richer at say 28:1 Now if someone has something contrary to say about an experts article and opinion, then you are a special kind of stupid.

    I found a more up to date well written article by an EXPERT in the field. This should end the debate. Also it is much shorter than the previous article, easier to read and get's to the final point quicker. So for anyone who is wondering what oil ratio to run in their 2 stroke, this article sums it up perfectly! http://dirtbike.off-road.com/dirtbike/tech/two-stroke-gasoil-ratios-20502.html

    I knew the wiseguys would come out. In my experience I run what the manufacturer says 32:1 At the end of the day I guess it's pointless to argue. Some guys are going to run what they like and I'm going to run what Suzuki tells me to run in a bike that they built.

    This is the final narrative of the long article if you don't like to read. If Suzuki tells you to run 32:1 in your RM then that's what you should do in order for it to perform best in all conditions - woods or race.

    It's a long read. But if you take the time to read it the end result shows what I said. More oil equals more horsepower and better protection. Less oil equals less hp and less protection. So if you like real dyno results and facts then read the article.

    Bel-Ray H1-R ....what ratio for RM250?

    No. Read it again. It made most hp at 20:1 I read it again. My bad. It made most power at actually 15:1

    I found the link. It's in pdf format. It's a long read. But you can get the point they make in the first paragraph and skip to the actual dyno results. I also misquoted it. The bike made the most hp with Suzuki's recommended at the time 20:1 ratio. So end result is the dyno doesn't lie and that what the manufacturer recommends you do is what you should do. They made the bike and they know where it performs best. But again some wiseguy is always going to claim their way is better and to disregard what the manufacturer of the actual bike says. Long story short more oil is more hp and more protection. Now someone please tell me this article is from the late 70's and is irrelevant today.

    Manual recommends 32:1 I go with that because I know it will ensure the engine getting the proper amount of lubrication and also having less wear and in turn lasting longer. I'm always skeptical when going with less oil. Although these newer synthetic oils offer a bit more protection against wear. I think with bel-ray hr1 or any of these newer synthetics you can get away with 40:1 but I definitely wouldn't go 50:1 Less oil equals less protection no matter how you slice it. I also read a lenghty article here on TT that someone posted about 2 stroke oils and ratios. It was written years ago, but someone did a very scientific research with dyno data to prove the results. The end result being that a 2 stroke motor makes the most hp at 32:1 and offers the best protection. They tried all ratios from 20:1 to I think maybe around 60:1 and when they ran the dyno with the lesser oil ratio the bike made the least hp and caused damage. Common sense it seems. But don't tell that to someone who runs 50:1 or more because they will ensure you that the less oil you run in your 2 stroke the cooler you are.
  15. That is the definition of POS. But, it's craigslist and it's free so no one worries about listing a bike and talking it up hoping they will find a sucker. If they had to actually pay for the ad... well you wouldn't see half of those ads.
