    exaust smoke is to rich or to much oil what are you mixing it at it is suppose to be 8 oz per gallon thats what my break in manuel says try leaning carb a bit in turn will idle it down and when you idle it down start to add a little choke cause mine like a little choke to run deccent and it doesnt smoke except when it's real cold out by the way welcome to the forum

    Your just a bit short on recommended ratio but not enough to cause concern. I'm useing XPL $10 a quart, $25 a gallon. It's made for high stress 2 strokes like racing snowmobiles and watercraft.

    Oh, it's in to lean it.

    i just had a vision , the oil i use is made for personal water crafts i think they are water cooled engines. this may be bad for an air cooled. can anyone help. should i change oil:confused:

    i'm sorry stan i was never schooled correctly. I was stuck in a hill billy state where half of the people were kin in some way or another . So i never learned very much except deer hunting and moon shine.

    LOL... From one redneck grad to another, just try is all we ask. It helps us and you by preventing misunderstandings.

    It should not make a difference IMO. But I do not own a personal watercraft, so I am not familiar with the differences.
