The Kx100 has an oil resevour that injects oil into the gas. No need to change the oil or mix oil and gas before hand. Just fill the gas and top off the oil resevor and go. There are no oil changes or filter changes. The oil that is found in the gearbox is good till you do your first top end overhaul. You will know when it is time to over haul the top end when it begins to loss power. Other than that this bike is virtually maintenace free. Check tires, chain slack, and go.

    Read the manual. If you don’t have one get one. I don’t know this bike well enough to comment on it specifically but there are some bikes that have oil injection. Usually though you have to premix the fuel and oil. Most lubrication is handled by the oil in the premix.

    No bike is maintenance free. Because you have a 2-stroke, you are free of needing to adjust your valves, but you still need to maintain the rest of the bike. Controls and cables need to be adjusted and lubricated. Chain adjusted, cleaned and lubricated. Check the gearbox oil level regularly, and change according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Wheel bearings, awing arm bearings, suspension linkage and steering head all need attention, and adjustment and lubrication when called for. Brake pads and fluid need periodic replacement. The spark plug will need more frequent replacement on a 2-stroke. You either have to pre-mix oil with your fuel, or keep the reservoir filled if it has oil injection. Fasteners need to be checked and tightened regularly.

    I own a KX100. The gas and 2 stroke oil MUST be mixed. They are NOT oil injected. Clean your air filter after every few rides, more in dusty conditions. Gearbox oil should be changed every few months, not after every ride. Chain should be lubed often. Watch for any leaks and fix then immediately, this is easier if the bike is clean. On a new bike they use very little lube from the factory so some guys tear them down and re-lube the shock linkage, swingarm pivot, and steering head bearings.
