  1. Hi all, I was wondering if any of you guys/girls have a honda nsr 250 and what oil to use for the pre-mix?

  2. I used to use castrol in my RGV you can get it at supercheap for an ok price, better to put a reminder on their website fkr when it comes up on special

  3. Pre mix? Pretty sure they had a reservoir from memory.. I used either Belray or Motul in my '99 NSR 250SE when I had it though.

  4. They do have a reservoir but couldn't think of the name when I made the thread. But I heard that the oil pump was a bit weak or something so that is why I put in pre mix.

  7. Oil pumps are fine in all the NSR models. If it's working and setup properly, you'll be fine.

    What did the previous owner say about hte oil pump and has it had a history of seizing?

  8. I don't remember what the previous owner said but the engine did seize or something like that

  9. ok, what mods have been done to the bike?

    The seize may be mods related, or lack of maintenance.
