Where is a power band at on a 2 sttroke

The 'poer band' is not an object in the engine. It is a term that refers to the RPM range in which an engine produces the most power. All engines have a power band but it is a term that is most commonly associated with a two stroke because almost all other engines have a very smooth transition of power yet the tuned, performance 2-stroke engine has a very clearly defined RPM range where it produces substantially more power - hence the term.

The power band in a 2-stroke is typically in the upper RPM but it can be moved and altered by changing the compression of the engine, the weight of the flywheel, the carburetors settings, the port timing of the cylinder, the shape of the combustion chamber and the exhaust tract among other less popular mechanical alterations.

I hope this clears things up.

How to inprove engine power by modification of exhaust system in motorcycle

Modifying one part of your bike will some effect from another.
If you modify the exhaust system it won't guarantee a bigger additional power, it only just help the exhaust from the engine to go out faster. Become noisy too!
You must modify the piston, carburetor, crankshaft drive gear, and rear wheel gear to have the optimum power advantage you desire for real power from your bikes engine.
May I suggest, instead of the exhaust modification, you should start in the gearing system( crank gear sprocket, rear wheel sprocket, and chain )
Hope that helps you.
Thanks for using FixYa!

What is the problem if my yamaha enduro 100 has no enough power to move .?

darielgerban you don't give very much information about your problem.
I presume the engine is running... if this is the case then does it rev up? If the engine is performing normally but no power is getting to the wheels it would suggest your clutch is defective and is slipping when power is transfered through it.
Place the front wheel against a strong wall, start the engine and put the bike in gear, rev the engine a little and let the clutch lever out SLOWLY and see if the engine stalls when the lever is fuly out. If it doesn't stall then your clutch needs replacing.

Does anyone have experience with KTM 380 exc power bands? I need to confirm the distance it is meant to travel (full Length)

Sorry you may need to repost this question, perhaps you mean chain?

A power band is an area on a graph of power v rpm where the engine produces its best power for the engine speed. it is not a physical object.

Power loss

In the absence of any FI codes/light, my next suspect would be the ignition coils. If the old plugs showed soot on ONE of the plugs, that coil might be your problem. The only reliable check is a spark tester that read the output while the bike is running.

If you are serious about getting real power from the engine, Google motorcycle racing cams. There is an outfit in California, "Web Cam Racing", that is used by the pro circuit racers. 51.369.5144

Pegasus 150 looses power then overheats

Check for a fuel filter inline between the gas tank and the carb. Replace that filter ! Also dump half a bottle of Techroline (Chevron) into the gas tank. You are starving the engine of fuel which will lose you power and can cause overheating...check your oil and change often..Techroline can also be found at your local auto parts store....good Luck to you...Tim

"emergency operating condition"

hi Daveanjos,

i dont own a bmw bike, but this info may help out.

The emergency operation means

The engine is running in emergency operating mode. Engine power might be reduced and this can cause hazardous situations, particularly if you attempt to overtake other road
users. Engine power level might be lower than normal: adapt your
style of riding accordingly. The engine control unit has diagnosed
a fault. In exceptional cases, the engine stops and refuses
to start. Otherwise, the engine runs in emergency operating
mode. You can continue to ride, but bear in mind that the usual engine power might not be available.

Have the fault rectified as quickly as possible by a
specialist workshop, preferably an authorised BMW Motorrad
