    Klotz r50 mix ratio
    Posted by bnstock on Monday, January 25, 2016 7:09 PM

    I am wondering if anyone has experience playing around with klotz r50 fuel ratios?  I run a 700 improved triple. I am currently at a 38-40:1 ratio with vp c14. There seems to be quite a bit of oil coming out of the exhaust pipes and the carbs seem to always have a film of oil around them. I have opened up the top end a few times since the motor has been built and everything always has looked great. Can I get away with running a little leaner on the oil and would the benefit outway the risk? Any extra power always helps. :) thanks

    I ran 50/1 C14 with either R50 or Super techniplate with no oil related problems.Neither is good for storage protection though.

    38:1 to 40:1 is perfect,R50 is highly rpm oil,so if you drive the thing not enough hard,buil-up show up,if you figured out was too rich well,that it.
