O.K. one more stupid question! Everyone is telling me different 2 stroke ratios. Ive heard everything from 50:1 to 25:1 What do you think for a 97 Kawasaki KX250

32:1 is what I ran in both my 250s with Redline synthetic. Infact 32:1 is what I pretty much run in everything.

this really depends on the oil your using ,generally the more oil used the more power your going to make,the synthetics have a higher flashpoint and use higher ratios than castor based oils ...just dont believe everything you read on the back of the container

So true, everyone thinks that less oil means more power. There are btu's in dat der oil lol. Just have to sit back and think about it a little, what robs hp? Friction. Im not saying go out and mix yourself some 16:1 but I wouldnt run anything leaner than 32:1

i run 20:1 in the 250, kind of unnecessarily rich but you make more power and everything last longer so why not. plus the richer you go the better it smells / the more it smokes, and everyone wants there 2 stroke to smell good and smoke allot right?

i run 40:1 in the golf cart, no reason why but i just always have and its jetted for that so... always 927 castor in both.
