    Need to know

    Well since I have now two machines down, one missing in action, and the other yesterday went and seized up on me, that leaves me with the 1200 Polaris Variage TX question is what raito is for the pre-mix? Thanks.

    I pre-mix at 40:1....anything over that is overkill and anything under that you're taking your chances...

    It'll smoke a little more at idle but hey, it's a 2 stroke right?

    Remember to perform your plug chops/piston wash after going to pre-mix just to be safe.

    When you switch your ski over to pre-mix you in effect lean out the mixture a little as some of the space in your fuel lines that was previously being used for gas is now being used for oil...

    Therefore after the switch it's a good idea to do a plug chop to make sure your mix is still safe (usually is but it's just one of those "better safe than sorry" kind of things)...
