Added reply in a thread Newer cylinder on older engine 2-stroke 11/19/2019 12:31 PM

I dunno, but you can rule the obvious out by just comparing the base gaskets between the two years. If they obviously look different, the cylinder isn't physically going to fit. Sometimes they change the distance between the base studs, transfer port ... more »

Looks like it is using chinese pit bike forks and shock. Uhh, no thanks.

good times... Yeah, none of these were on live TV during this era. I'm pretty sure they pre-recorded the video, and then added commentary later. Times have changed.

Notice that some manufacturers are putting EFI on their Enduro and offroad 2 strokes only. The one thing that EFI does to a 2 stroke, is smooth the power out a lot. There will be nowhere near the 'hit' in a 2 strokes powerband if they go EFI. I believe ... more »

I'd like to see the rest of that engine, because the kickstarter and that inner case looks very much like YZ parts. Got any pics of the other side of the engine?

Top end looks in really good shape.... but if it was me, I would at least put a new ring on the piston while I had it apart.

I just got hold of a new Kawasaki EFI tuner. Does anybody have a resource for some good maps to try, besides the one that Keefer has used?

I would check the seal between the air boot and the air box. You should be able to take it apart, clean it up, and seal it up better. I've used forma-gasket there before, but I'm sure there is something better.

A few factors on a failed two stroke connecting rod. 1) time. Two stroke connecting rods ride on needle bearings that are directly lubricated from the fuel/oil mixture. Wear will happen no matter what, but you can slow this down by running more oil in ... more »

Idle problem sounds like it could be a problem with the tps sensor maybe? Check ALL of your electrical connections. The battery issue sounds like the typical Kawasaki battery problem. When it overheats, it has an auto shutdown built in. Check the ground ... more »

You need the hanger replaced also, if you want proper brake pad contact on the rotor.

Yes you can. As long as they are the same style of Keihin jets.

Any 4 stroke with 100 hours on it, you should at least be thinking about replacing the timing chain. On a 250F, depending on who was riding it, I would be thinking about the valves and getting the head re-cut also. Pistons last longer on a 4 stroke than ... more »
