Default 1989 CR125r

     

I recently got a 1989 Honda 125r. I was wondering if anyone has any tips on maintenance, tire pressure and fuel ratios. What are you guys running for fuel ratios in these bikes? Are there any tricks I should know? While I'm not new to engine maintenance, I'm relatively new to riding bikes. Just lookin' for some help.

Thanks

First step is to get a service manual. Those and many other questions will be answered.

I've ordered one, I'm just trying to get the correct fuel ratio so I can ride while I wait for the manual to come.

Welcome to ATM. Usually a good starting point for premix ratio is 32:1 (1 liter of oil to 5 gallons of gasoline). Tire pressures usually run in the 10-13 PSI range, go up or down a bit based on terrain and how the bike feels. Maintenance needs will depend on how the bike was cared for in the past and how often it gets ridden.
Good luck with the bike and don't hesitate to ask more questions.

Mix only the gas you will use in a days ride and never use old fuel mix in your bike.

Thanks so much, that's exactly what I was looking for. Any other tips I should know as I enter the world of 2 stroke motors?
