    1995 wave raider oil/gas mix ratio

    I have just picked up a raider and the oil tank and oil pump are gone. Apparently the previous owner removed. Can anyone help with what the correct ratio of oil to gas should be and what oil I should use.

    Thanks.

    Welcome! It's good to see another raider guy!

    You want to mix at 50:1

    50:1 is what the oem recomends. I'll alway mix at 40:1 it only takes less than 1 mph of the top, but your crank, pistons will last way more longer

    like was posted 50 to 1 is what the pump puts out at full output but I also run 40 to 1 and it only knocks of . 5 mph
    seriously I don't think there is a downside to a little more oil

    if your going to premix i would def run 40:1 much safer spark plugs cost less than engines
