my yz125 is brutal on fuel. i know that two strokes are bad for fuel but i can only ride for about one and a half hours, then i have to gas up.

i havent taken off the carb yet to adjust it to stock or anything.

is there anything aftermarket to help with fuel?


thanks.

It will waste a lot less fuel if you get the jetting correct.

On a two-stroke. the difference between properly jetted and what most people run around with can be on the order .15 lbs of fuel per horsepower per hour. On a 30 horsepower engine that comes out to about 4.5lbs of fuel per hour or about 3/4 of a gallon. That's a LOT of fuel to waste.
