    Removing oil can, going premix

    im trying to make my 650 lighter. a few suggestions were made and i think im gonna go for removing the oil tank. is that a bad idea? i was gonna premix with some Maxima Oil....but whats a good ratio for performance?

    what else can i do to make it lighter?

    oil ratio

    Definitely get a block off plate and go premix. You'll pay big time down the road if you don't. 32:1 for performance and 40:1 for engine longevity. If you got the bucks and the time go 32:1. To make it lighter, cut out the ice cream before bed and eat alot of veggies. I hear Jerad is a jet skier now! Reducing the weight isn't going to help much; you want new prop, intake grate, ride plate, pipe, head, pistons, in that order. If you got the bucks and the time, you can make it a race machine, but like I said, lighter isn't going to help much unless your a fat a$$.

    other way around..........32:1 for longevity and 40:1 for performance.


    Is the block off plate just a flat plate? Nothing else to it?

    pretty much, overpriced flat/smooth piece of pretty aluminum. the one I ordered and paid $15 for, didn't even have the proper bolts.
    '94 Polaris SL 750 \ '95 Tigershark Monte Carlo \ '82 CE Corvette \ '94 Vulcan 750 \ '95 F150 \ lots of mopar.
