About Husqvarna CR250 2004

As it is clearly a long stroke engine and cylinder looks like it could be a lot bigger is it really a bigger engine with smaller cylinder? It works very well and as I was changing piston for my fathers bike I started wondering about this. 
Does anyone know?
Thank you Esa Kasper

Yes every motor is way bigger then the cylinder mainly because of all the components that the motor has inside of it. the cylinder only gets the piston and rings sliding through it so it doesnt have to be big or anything, manufacturers probably think that this way will save way more money and weight.

how much smoke because 2 stroke engines do blow quite a lot of smoke it is normal as you mix oil with fuel to lube the cylinder walls and the piston

Yamaha wr125r 2012

Yes. Spend 1500 GBP on the parts and then fit them. You will need to replace the exhaust and the ECU and as you will have spent a lot of money on it already you will have about another 4 bhp. To get anymore you will need to get a tweaked head and cam plus a bore and piston kit to take the engine out to about 185cc. You would be better selling your bike and spending the extra money on a bigger machine or an older one. The Yamaha RD125DX has 16bhp and the early RD125LC made 21bhp. If you really want to tune an engine you should look for a 2 stroke. Tuning is easier and cheaper than 4 strokes. With 4 stokes the tuning involves cam timing and head and piston crown shape.

Hard time starting my husqvarna chainsaw when hot. chainsaw has choke but no primer

Poor hot starting on small two stroke engines can very often attributed to poor fuel quaility in your area, other things to check are that the air grills in the starter cover are clear, all the cooling air for the cylinder is taken through her, if there are any winter flaps in the partion wall of the top cover make sure these are closed, have the machine tuned by a compitent saw person, over speeding will increase the cylinder temperature and cause bad re starting, try not to let the machine actually run out of fuel, re fill before it does.

Need fuel to oil ratio for husqvarna 223L trimmer

Here is the scoop copied from the Husky site:

Two-stroke oil
• For best results and performance use HUSQVARNA twostroke
engine oil, which is specially formulated for our aircooled
two-stroke engines.
• Never use two-stroke oil intended for water-cooled
engines, sometimes referred to as outboard oil (rated
• Never use oil intended for four-stroke engines.
• A poor oil quality and/or too high oil/fuel ratio may
jeopardise function and decrease the life time of catalytic
• Mixing ratio
1:50 (2%) with HUSQVARNA two-stroke oil.
Hope this is helpful, let me know if it's not and I'll come at it some other way:)

Chain saw carburator settings for husqvarna 61

Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow the engine to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn the H jet screw CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-strokes. Proper adjustment occurs when the engine is 4-stroking, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This gives best power and lowest heat. Release the throttle and adjust L jet CW until the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

I have a husqvarna 255r brushcutter, my son put wrong mix when petrol changed to unleaded and the 2 stroke oil, we have it 5 yrs used on 4 TIMES oooh ...but anyway told pistons gone, son and h/band not...

Unless really trashed you can simply replace the piston, and re-bore/resleeve the cylinder, that will cost much less.An competent motor bike, or lawnmower repair shop should be able to do that for you, that way you could get a "Kit" online, and simply do that.

Hi im after the fuel mixture for a 125L husqvarna straight shaft brush cutter.thanks

From you manual:
Two-stroke oil
For great results and performance use HUSQVARNA two--stroke oil, which is specially formulated for our two-stroke engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%). To maximize the life of your trimmer, you may choose to use a high quality synthetic oil formulated for two-stroke engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%). Never use two--stroke oil intended for water-cooled outboard engines, sometimes referred to as outboard oil. Never use oil intended for four-stroke engines.
WARNING! Always ensure there is adequate ventilation when handling fuel.

1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces 2-cycle oil. 2.6 ounce pre-measured containers are available at most chainsaw outlets.
