I have a 13 YZ 125 that I'm selling, seeing as I haven't rode in years now. The bike has been dormant since and before I sell it I was wanting to put some fresh premix in and clean it up a bit before someone test drove it.

Any recommendations on which brand of oil and ratio to use to achieve cleaning out any old oil and gas? I've always used 32:1 Yamalube.

Why would you change your oil ratio?

That's why I'm asking. I've never had a bike sit for so long before and don't know how old oil behaves if it stays gunked up or if it burns off no problem. If fresh 32:1 will clean it right up, then I guess problem solved.

Why not just pull the tank, dump it, add fresh gas, shake it up, dump it, reinstall tank, pour fresh 32:1 yamahalube in it

problem solved

Okay thanks guys! Was a silly question, but I'd rather ask a silly question than not do something right.

Hopefully you drained the carb or the oil & gas mixture will be the least of your worries...I would inspect the air filter before attempting to start it.....they have a habit of rotting away after sitting for a long time....may find a mouse or 2 living in the airbox...

99% chance the Carb needs to be cleaned
