Yamaha CT1 175cc Question

Postby Formegolf » Sun Nov 04, 2012 2:05 am

Hello,
Hope everyone is having a good day. I have a Yamaha CT1 175cc and asking if I should use regular gas or do I mix 2-cycle oil with the gas? I currently am mixing the gas with 2-stroke oil and noticing that it's running a little sluggish. The bike does have the seperate oil can by the battery so maybe i shouldnt be mixing the gas??? Please help!

Thank you,
Mark

first you need to make sure the mix is correct, some bike can be 50 to 1 other might only be 25 to 1,
if the bikes own pre mixer is working well , use the on board one, but make sure its working first,
