What he said, too much piston to wall clearance. They usually shatter at the skirt from that.

My opinion rebuild the crank you have. I've had almost a dozen cranks done and only had 1 rod snap in half and that was from IMS on our 112 supermini Kawasaki. Hot Rods and ProX (rod kits) both have been reliable, my guy trues them at the outer ends ... more »

Nobody remembers old school, come to Dade City on a Sat. points night for a little refresher. Yeah that's why Randy's hair is pretty gray also! LOL

Start with what the owners manual says. Then add up what everyone on here says and divide it equally. And then.......

You probably want to get a measurement on the bore to be safe. But knowing the age and if you can't find anyone to help you measure go with the B it's a little bigger to go in a worn bore.

Here's the plug after running the Motul 800 2T at 32:1. Air was at 300 feet and I leaned the main down to a 350. I don't go to a 350 until the adjusted altitude is over 2000 feet. That was running the Lucas at 24:1 then. That's usually over 90 degrees

Make sure it's centered also, glad I finally bought a press, makes that chore much easier. Don't like banging on stuff with a hammer.

Are the bearings in crank pressure fed or bathed? Forgive my ignorance on a 4 stroke.

Lucky. My kid can tear it down to the frame and rebuild it back, but I do the washing and maintenance to keep from shitting myself if I only see that much oil in the drain bucket!! LOL

My problem is my near 20 years of drag racing, I can't leave well enough alone. Always tuning the bike to tracks and conditions. So I'm always running the razors edge and that's usually on the edge of lean and more lead. Glad to hear of your experience ... more »

See how much oil residue is at bottom of crankcase, there should be some. This is a sign that the premix is doing it's job coating the bearings and such if it's dry down there, well I'd know where I'd point the finger. Now having said that I'm in a quandary ... more »
