Default Another ME TOO!

Wrote an essay about myself last night in another forum. My story is quite similar to many others here. Learned to ride young...school....wife...kids(both are girls!)...and a strong sense of nostalgia!

Gonna try to get the 'Ol 2fiddy to light off this afternoon.

Just darn glad to be here!
Later,
David

New guy here with a 68 DT1. I do not have the owners manual that and hope to find out tons of info on the forum. I have found out all of the information I was looking for so far except the three simplest things; What weight crankcase oil should I use? Do I need to add a lead additive? What type of 2 stroke oil is best?

i use plain old 30 weight in mine but 10W30 will also work.no you don't need a lead additive and Yamalube 2S injector oil is your best bet,i use the Yamalube 2S in the injector oil and mix some Yamalube R in the gas tank at a 50:1 ratio.Welcome to the forum!

Default Motorcycle newbie

Whats up guys?

I am a complete newbie when it comes to motorcycles. I just picked up a free basket case bike (my first motorcycle!). I used the serial number section to determine that it is a 1975 DT250b. I hope to have this baby running in the next few months and do a resto to it this winter. I am pretty handy but most of my experiance is with cars and trucks. I am sure I will have lots of questions so I will start a new thread describing my project.
