    How much more oil is added to make more power. Was anything else done other than changing oil ratio?

    Well it all started with a simple question about a leaf blower. A person ask if it would be ok since he had only one gas can mixed at 18:1 for a chainsaw if he could use it in a leaf blower thats suppose to be mixed at 50:1. I said it would be ok but the result in the leaf blower might be a fouled plug. Then thats when the down under fellas said more oil = more power, I called BS and you can imagine the rest.
  6. Hey guys Ive been riding my yz250 for sometime now. Ive all but thought I knew 2-stroke engines pretty well until recently. Ive got into this discussion with some guys from aulstrailia that there saying more oil equals more power. Now of course I thought that this was bogus but aparantly a lot of them believe this to be true. Could some of you 2-stroke guru's shed some light for me as I cant asked them since I put foot in mouth if they are right.

    Fast idle at start up

    Try mixing at 40:1 with 93 octane gas. Thats what i run my 02 yz250. Also I run the stock br8eg spark plug on motul 2t oil.

    yz 250 the best woods mxer?

    +1 on the yz is better than the xr. I rode a xr250 for a while it was heavy, got a yz 250 big difference, love it.

    06 YZ85 good deal or not?

    I think its a good deal. My buddy bought a 04 rm 85 for his kid for 1000. HE had to put some money into though.

    I think motul smells good when burned through my 250 almost like race gas. I also get a little spooge but no plug fouling. Great oil. 40:1 ratio
