Does 2 Strokes Oil Injected Smoke more in colder weather?

4 posts in this topic

I noticed that my Yamaha was smoking quite a bit when the weather was cold. I do not think it was fog as I could smell the smoke. When the weather warmed, the smoke was negligible. Is this a cold weather phenomenon or was AMSOIL the culprit or something else?

Hummm, let's see. If I remember correctly, warmer makes em run richer, that is why sleds smoke like hell and foul plugs when it is warm out. Also shy you have to put bigger jets in the sled when it is really cold out - too lean and you smoke the piston. So, maybe because you have a sophisticated like system, it puts more oil in when cold since the mixture could go leaner. Hard to say since I am not sure how much computerized gizmos you have on there to correct for all that in the air fuel mix etc.

In my opinion, it is steam you are seeing from the exaust during the colder weather. It is the same concept as a truck. In the winter, you can see the exaust/steam, but in the summer you can't. Maybe I am wrong though.

You might see a bit more smoke from the oil on a cold start but once the engines warmed I think your seeing water vapor.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
