Hello, I am a new solex owner. I just bought a '75 and it doesnt run. I think I found the problem in a blocked fuel line. Could someone tell me what the gas , oil mix is and do I need a certain type if oil?




Yes, definitely use a good grade 2-stroke oil. Sometimes it's called 2-cycle oil.

The most common ratio is 50:1, or 2.5 ounces of oil per gallon of gas. Look online a little to see if it's different for your bike.

Also, make sure your bike doesn't have a separate oil reservoir. If so, it probably has oil injection and you don't need to pre mix.

To pre mix add the oil to the gas can first, and then add the gas to mix well.
