1986 TRX 250 R has no compression, probably not rings or gaskets cuz there'd be some compression still !! Any ideas ??

A cylinder efficiency test would be the quick answer. Set the engine to top dead centre on the compression stroke if it is a 4-stroke or any top dead centre if it is two stroke. Lock the crankshaft or engage high gear and apply the brakes to prevent the engine rotating during the test (locking the crank is better). Jam the throttle open and remove the air filter.
Remove the spark plug and fit a commercially available adapter or a modified spark plug which allows compressed air to be fed into the cylinder without leaking.

Once the cylinder is fed with compressed air, leaks through the induction indicates a faulty inlet valve or seat, air escaping through the exhaust indicates similar problems with the exhaust valve or seat and more than the usual dribble of air escaping through the piston ring gaps indicates problems with the piston, rings or cylinder bore.

This type of test is quick and reliable and far superior to wet-and-dry compression testing but the diagnosis is slightly different for a 2-stroke as there are no valves but the process is quite intuitive and a valuable aid to fault finding but stick to low pressure on these engines..

You cleaned the carb; did you rebuild it? Did you put in new throttle springs and adjust the needle jet properly... the keeper ring placed on the correct groove? Did you put a new float in and then adjust the float travel properly? If you didn't do these things, then you aren't finished yet. All these things make a difference. If you need to put a new float in, be careful as the metal tab is easy to break off when bending it to correct specs.

1998 polars 500 dies wont start back

Try adjusting you mixture a little richer, 1/8 turn on the fuel screw. If this doesn't help get to idle, you will need to rebuild the carb. make sure you get a complete kit to include the float and throttle springs as well as jets and gaskets. Write down your initial mixture settings and try them again on your rebuilt carb. Should be fine. Bending float arms for travel length is tricky, be careful as they can easily break off making them useless. The rest of the process is pretty straightforward. Ensure you place the needle jet keeper ring on the correct groove and the throttle moves smoothly against the spring tension on the cable above the needle valve.

I have an 04 Suzuki Eiger 400. Smokes a lot when first started but subsides a little after running. Im thinking piston rings but would like any other feedback before tearing the top end apart

sounds like piston rings, if rings are in bad shape,will be at its worst when cold then will get better when it warms up. Should be some power loss as well. pretty easy rebuild. good luck

I have a 2000 Polaris 400 that had 30 lbs compression. top end was rebuilt, and cylinder honed. New piston, rings (staggered against stop tabs), wrist pin bearing and pin, and the retainer clips were...

Hey Brandon, there could be several things... one is you put the piston in backwards... the arrow goes toward the exhaust..(if there are holes in the piston, they go in the back).., you installed the wrong piston..or..skirt was too long.., you left something inside the engine..(dropped one of the circlips in the engine).. the rings were installed upside down..,one of the circlips came out..., you got a bad piston..(never seen this happen).., the cylinder needed boring and it had so much clearance that the skirt caught on the intake port lip...

OK...Brandon, repairing this engine correctly is going to require a COMPLETE DISASSEMBLY - there are tiny tiny bits of aluminum in the main bearings, packed in between the main bearings and crank seals.. its in the main rod bearing..and its all in the bottom of the cases... THE ONLY way to effectively remove ALL this is to pull it apart.. this is not a hard job, but if you have never done it, PLEASE take it to a qualified requires several special tools... .they may/should be able to tell you what happened to cause it too..
IF you do not do all this, you WILL have premature ENGINE FAILURE AGAIN!!!! and this time it could be worse!

It appears that the problem is in the brushes in the alternator and the slip rings. At high revs and 4000 will be around 6000 in the alternator the brushes are floating off the rings. I would have the alternator check out
