Break in is just riding the bike easy for an hour, shifting through the gears w/o high revs. Now go out to the woods and have fun. Change gearbox oil after about 20 hours of riding to remove metal contaminates from the full break in.

Top rating due on this answer! Thanks arenacross91!

Runs alright when cold but when its warm it pops n runs bad,does it need the carbs cleaned or the lower end rebuilt

if it is a 2 stroke then it may be the crank shaft seals only that need replacing
however if it plays up when warm I would be looking for failures in the electronics section---coil failure when hot, ignition module when hot, charge circuit failure when hot etc
if 4 stroke check valve clearance when hot

Who invented the m1 carbine rifle

The rifle was originally designed by Jonathan Browning, brother of John Browning, but died before the design was completed.
Winchester hired David "Carbine" Williams, who had began design on a "short-stroke" gas piston design, having him finish the M1 design.

Does this cable have a small lead end ? Turn it vertical and slide it
into a spiral shape on carburetor the cable should pass through a groove facing the operators handle. Don't cut the lead end in anyway it won't work for you if you do.

2010 Yamaha YZ85 seized the crank for the 2nd time

Hi, Anonymous there is a proper break-in procedure for new/fresh engines and I would use a 15:1 ratio for the first tank, then follow owners manual recommendations, for this scenario you will need your service manual, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

I just rebuilt the top end of my dirt bike, its a 1996 wr 250 2 stroke. I was breaking the motor in , and it was running great so after about 1/2 hour of riding I decided to stop and ask a fellow rider for...

Hi, Bodyrupp the answer to this question is way above my pay grade and for this situation, I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

Hi! I just rebuilt my 1974 dt 360 A. and new top end but it smokes badly? new 60 over wisco piston and sent to US Chrome to rework it newly rebuilt crank. all new seals and gaskets. So What Up? can you...

Smoke in a two stroke motor is caused by two things. 1) Even a four stroke will smoke if it has too rich of a mixture or a carburetor that has a malfunctioning choke (a new choke plunger would fix this). Make sure you have a good o-ring on the main jet holder. This was a common problem on old Yamaha two stroke carburetors.2) The type of oil you are using is of a very low grade. Smokeless oils and synthetic oils will smoke less and could solve the problem.
You could just be seeing old residue burning out of the exhaust system, try cleaning the baffle. When you rebuilt the motor did you use a semi drying liquid type gasket material between the two case halves? This would keep transmission oil from leaking into the crankcase. If you have only started the motor in the driveway you may have to just go out for a long drive down the road to clean up all the systems.

I rebuilt the Walbro carb on a Pioneer 1074

Go to: for a 12 page PDF document that describes, explains theory, and servicing this line of carburetors. Note the precaution on placing the gasket in the lower chamber. After presetting the H and L jet needles, start the engine and allow to warm up. Open full throttle and adjust the H needle CW to allow the engine to 4-stroke, but will immediately 2-stroke when starting to cut wood. Adjust L needle CW to allow fairly smooth idle, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Hope this helps!

I have a mercury 25, 2 stroke, need to know what type of oil and the ratio of oil to gas

I would use Mercury 2 stroke comes in a black bottle with a red label. Also you can use Quicksilver brand...that is made by Mercury but marketed to sell to stores like Wal Mart. If you are breaking in a new or rebuilt engine then you mix 100:1 for the first two tanks. Any normal application you should be running 50:1 all the time. Keep in mind that I have been to Mercury School and this is coming straight from the horses mouth. No matter what it says on the tank, or what anyone else tells should always be running at 50:1 unless you are in the break in period of the engine.
