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'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'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. ,,,

Hey guys, how's it goin? I am in the middle of downloading a pirated copy of Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus 2011, and I am told that because it's a "free copy", I am going to need something...

Fixya does not promote piracy. Instead of trying to use a pirated product, you can try using a free antivirus like Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast Antivirus.

If you already have a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link to clean up your computer.

hp printers typically do not have an error message to cover every known condition, thus if the printer needs maintenance in an undefined area, it will invariably indicate a paper jam. The printer usually responds to the installation of a maintenance kit which will include transfer roller, pickup rollers, and fuser.
