2015 YZ125 bogging with 32:1 mix

One of my new riding buddies has a 2015 YZ125 and yesterday at the track, after hearing him ride, I told him the bike just didn't sound right when it got on the pipe.. Way too fat and boggy. I asked what ratio he was running and he said 32:1, which he said that's what the bike calls for (I haven't confirmed this).. He's the second owner of the bike and is 99.9% sure the previous owner wouldn't of even known how to re-jet the bike, so we're assuming the carb settings are all stock.

I know oil ratio and jetting specs run hand in hand.. but if the carb settings are indeed stock, and the manual does call for 32:1... where's the best place to start? Try leaning it out with the clip setting? Any comments are much appreciated. Thanks guy


Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

Ive always been told to run the specified mixture ratio and jet accordingly. First step is to see what jets you have and compare to the stock ones.

Might have too big of a main jet. My 2006 YZ125 has all stock jetting with the air screw at two turns. I run 32:1 and no bog, wheelies out of corners.. Best thing to do is just take the carb off and check out what jets are in it.

Also, the manual actually calls for 30:1 I'm pretty sure. I've even tried that and no bog either.

Like it has been stated, the issue is not the oil mix ratio.
Take the carb apart and clean all the passages and jets.

Definitely not mix ratio related. I have gone up to 20:1 in a YZ125 and it ran great.
