    I put the proper amount of 2 stroke motor oil in my bikes gas tank and made the mistake of waiting a couple of days before putting the gas in, now the oil has gone all the way down the fuel line. How do I clean the motor so it will start again?

    You can drain the oil out of the float bowl on the carb and start all over. Maybe a little starting fluid into the carb. Good luck!!

    yes -- hellbilly has got you there

    just another one of those lessons learned

    if not mixing on the road
    while mixing at home -- might want to mix your gas with oil in separate gas can
    can get some good mixing a going on

    ride that thing

    Yeah, i did this a couple of weeks ago when i was in a rush. was already some fuel in tank, but not much, poured my oil in, then petrol about 2 mins later. Oil had sunk to bottom of tank already and didnt mix. Then sucked straight oil into carby. Ended up draining the tank and taking off carby and cleaning it with petrol. And as was said, undo the little screw on the bottom of the float bowl and just pour straight petrol through the carby till it is coming out that hole petrol caolor, not oil colored.
