Hi!

I am looking for information about the engine weights of numerous 2 stroke engines like YZ125, YZ250 or KTm 250SX.
It seems to be near impossible to find the weight specs of any of the 2stroke engines online, and even harder if I want to find out the weight w/o transmission. If anyone here have weighted the engine or know the weighted, it would be tremendously helpful!

Thanks
Regards
Karl

As taken from the Full Tilt TM thread in the Bike Builds section - a tm144 engine is "41 pounds with the stator and flywheel."

I would have thought that would be the weight of engine (with no oil) as removed straight from the frame.

I'm sure I read ages ago on thumpertalk of a weight around 46lb for a 2st engine, but can't remember what cc it was.

Kyle, Thank you!

oh yeah I am about to to make an engine purchase decision for a project and I am weighting the options haha (no pun intended). I though the 2strokers are lighter? perhaps some are air cooled?

Depends on the application. The engines should weigh less than any four stroke engine. Too much of a hassle to swap a modern four stroke anyhow.

I should have weighed just the engine by itself. But I sent a complete kx500 engine to Germany and the complete package weighed 68 lbs. And I'm sending a YZ250 engine to the Czech Republic today. The box weighs 58 lbs.

That the engine with no stator, flywheel, carb or reeds. The box and packaging probably weighs 5 lbs.
