650ml of Dextron 2 ATF is the best job.

Had an 05 and loved it, great frame & suspenders!

I always used putoline atf dextron II but ccm aren't selling it anymore, the say the replacement for it is maxxis oil, but silkolene light gear oil will work fine. 650ml or 750ml if you do a engine strip down. I run 40:1 pre mix again putoline 959, not sure what i'll switch to, i've heard good thing about motul pre mix, whatever you do don't use rock oil premix, tm's don't like it.

Thanks D.C. I have a litre of Ipone 100% synthetic. You hear any reports on it ? I have run the strawberry Ipone in the sherco and it never missed a beat in nearly 3 years.

Isn't Motul owned by ktm ? I know 2 lads that own ktms,there're always blowing how great their bikes are and how great it is to be part of the Ktm club. I wonder sometimes who they are trying to convince,me or themselves !!

Put in 25mls more. Thats quite lean there. race spec is 125 to 5 litres as I run 135 (fuck all in the difference but thats suzuki training spec) and putoline mx5 is the best for price. you can get some expensive two stroke out there as 959 but we aint fuckin rock stars here. Use the mx5 and blob in another 10mls. Smokey to start off but give it 2mins and itll be grand and pinging.

Talking to chap in ccm today 125 ml to 5 litres,any good quality oil will do the job. Not the stuff you buy down the local hardware for the chainsaw.
