Default Re: Can a 2-stoke engine still run when bike is stopped?

Simply adding gasoline to your tank without adding the appropriate amount of oil is not a good idea. Neither is mixing the oil and gas in the bike's fuel tank. What happens is the oil will settle to the bottom and go directly to the carburetor. Your engine won't run on oil. It needs a mix of fuel and oil.
I strongly urge you to find a container, mix your fuel and oil to the proper ratio then add it to your fuel tank after it has been shaken and mixed. Shaking the bike isn't going to be good enough. Especially if you pour in the oil then add gasoline.
