Question about 2002 KTM EXC 200
Im gettin a KTM 2 stroke soon. Its kinda of old (1996). But it seems it was aken care of previously. What Can i do interms of maintenance? except for changing the oil... and also whta is jetting ? i seem to here a lot in these forums . And how should i know the best fuel / oil mix for my bike ? how important is it in terms of accuracy of the mixture? P.S im a total newbie in bike engineseveryone seems to think piston lasts for 30+ hrs. however pretty much alot of people that ride the 2 stroke decent enough get engine lock-ups...i wonder why ? i change my piston every 12-15 hours or when the play exceeds 0.08mm. i can go in very technical detail why but i don't feel like it.it's kinda long and boring in any case it has to do with the way the cylinder/piston wears (same for 2 or 4 stroke). Plug when it looks old...change it.it's not liek it's a very expensive part anyways. airfilter...clean it , with detergent/soap some people use airfilter cleaner , i find soap and warm water works well then i hang it to dry and after it's dry i oil it up and stick it back in the bike. frequent maintanance on any engine is important , i have been riding 125's for many years and i have yet to expierence engine failure...ofcourse i have been stopped by a broken chain...or a flat tire. but i haven't had any engine related failures in the past 7+ years.due to piston related lock-ups(except one time when one of the hoseclamps on the water hose came off and the engine over heated)that's one incident out of 100's of races i have ran...not that bad eh ? unlike many of the younger generation seem to believe , a 2 stroke is not any less reliable then a 4 stroker , not even a 125 is less reliable , and no you don't have to keep it at full rpm all the time either , it won't blow if it's setup right and maintained regularly. take care of your baby and she will take care of you, that's all there's to it. ,,,
