A lifetime ago i used to frequent the ISDE and watching guys rip full size 80's for 5 days and a moto, that was impressive. The top guys in the 125 class would beat the life out of those bikes,also impressive. Nothing kills any bike faster than pure ... more »

There should be lubricating holes on the exhaust skirt of that piston....being a wiseco. It even shows where and how to locate the holes in the box the piston came in. It may be low hours but it has definitely been dusted. Might want to look into a better ... more »

Just for a quick and easy experiment instead of changing the base valve shim stack ...throw in some 7wt oil or ATF. If that feels harsh and jarring then look closer at your mid valve float height. Reduce float height by .5 mm will help more with low ... more »

I find it a bit sad that any builder would turn you down for the work on this engine. Very much like you said there isn't much to these motors. Armed with a couple of decent pullers (flywheel & case splitter) a person can have them apart in well ... more »

ah..yes....the old "broken intake skirt" dilemma...Its a common issue with top ends that went a bit too far out of tolerance and got pushed hard. Many times the larger bits n pieces of the piston get clobbered by the rod at bottom dead center and conveniently ... more »

Also look for cracks around the upper shock mount and linkage mounts. The 94 250's were known for having these issues.

There wasn't much really wrong with those engines. Good maintenance practices in regards to keeping the hpp valves super clean and sliding smoothly is important. Exhaust pipe sealing in the cylinder is a bit of a pain and needs constant attention. The ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2-stroke owners who use ATF - question 3/9/2021 6:53 AM
