Kinetic 2003 TFR Fuel Mixture

Postby mefonz » Tue Aug 22, 2006 5:16 pm

My manual says 4% per gallon, seems to work out to about 5.12 ounces that seems high to me!!

Anyone know how many ounces per gallon??
Any help will be appreciated!!
Thanx,
Have a great day!

That seems to make more sense to me :)

I put 2.5, I'll add a little more!!
Thanx,
Have a great day!

I came up with the same numbers from the manual. did not seem right to me also. I have 2 tfrs a 2003 and a 2005 both are still under 300 miles. I use 4 oz. of oil to 1 gal. gas., cosmo says to use that ratio for break in then 3.2 oz. after that. There was a tag on my new 2005 that also said 4 oz. then the 3.2 oz. mix. Hope this helps, lets see what Vulcan has to say. Power to the peds from Bombay.

I highly suggest never premixing below 40:1 in the Kinetic!!! About 12 years ago I tried running a TFR on 50:1 ... didn't last very long before it seized!

Jerry, I'm truly glad to see that there actually IS someone else out there who DOES prepare their premix precisely as it should be done!!!
Now I don't feel quite like the "lone wolf", when it comes to being as serious about ensuring my 'peds are running correctly prepared premix!!!

i use a vet syringe (i.e. big and well marked in 1cc increments) with some fuel line on the end when sucking it out of the oil jug to measure mine. it works very quickly and very accurately.
