WR500 questions first timer

1328 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  wmailhos

I have a few questions about my Yamaha WR500 that i want to get up and running and i was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to answer these questions?

  • What sort of oil do i need, is the mix 25:1?
  • Is it safe to start out of the water?

I have just checked the whole thing over and everything seems to be in tact.
I just wanted to confirm the above before i try to start it, just incase i make it go bang! :D

What is the correct ratio?

I just picked up an 88 and a 92 wr500 and the previous owner told me 50:1.

Haven't found an owner's or service manual yet...
