Along with replacing the piston, I would assume that you are replacing the rings. I would also hone out the engine while you are at it, that should help make it last longer. Otherwise it sounds like you are on the right track. Let me know how this turns out.

I have a new batiere in my 1991 vino 50cc tow stroke, And the starter wont work and it wont kick start even with starter fliod. Anything that I can check or replace?

Check fuses. Get a new spark plug then check for spark by hooking up the plug wire then hold the metal side of the plug against the cylinder. Have a friend kick the engine over while you look for spark. Remove the carb, then remove the float bowl from the bottom of the carb. Use spray carb cleaner to clean the carb. How old is the gas? Flush the tank and fill with fresh fuel if old gas is present. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

My 1996 suzuki rm80 js1rd starts thne bogs when you give it high revs backfiers then dies

I would check the carb and clean the spark plug or get a new one. And a big problem with 2 strokes when they need rebuilt on the top end is when you give gas they bog.

Assuming everything is back toether properly and was not the problem the frst place, remove the exhaust pipe to expose the exhaust ports to ensure they are not carbon block. Also check the exhaust it self for a spark arrestor screen that could hve been carbon fouled and clogged. Cannot free flow because of the problems noted above, you will not be able to run a two-stroke engine reliably.

Saw starts then dies. Changed fuel ine soaked carb

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Was the carburetor disassembled when soaked and did you use compressed air to blow out all passages? If the carburetor jet screws have been moved, preset them as follows: Turn both H and L screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW each screw 1-1/2 turns. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW until the engine speeds up somewhat but 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

1995 suzuki sepia 50cc 2stroke doesnt run

Two strokes are bad with fuel/oil mixure. If this is premix theres a problem,if injected you may not be getting oil injected. Topends will heat up fast without oil. Fouled plugs and the wrong gap will also cause these problems. Check carb boot for cracks as air leaks will also starvel fuel out. Spray WD40 into carb throat with out tank hooked up, if it fires up, clean carb and reset float. Make sure the spark gap is correct. Check to be sure you have not slipped a keyway on flywheel which would throw timing off and it will only start by accident once every so often.

The engine will not throttle up and it runs rough. Dies at an idle. Whats wrong Already changed spark plug and put new gas in

Sounds like the carb is needing a good cleaning. Get a spray can of Berryman's Carb spray cleaner.
Take the carb off and clean the carb bowl (if it's a 4 stroke motor) and remove the gas line, and with the spray tube nozzle, spray out as much of the jets, orifices, etc in your carb, let it dry out and reassemble.
Also, take the air filter/cleaner off and make sure it's clean. If it's full of dust and dirt, it will choke the carb off and it'll die at idle.
You can test this by removing the air filter element and starting the tiller. Alot of the small engines have a low oil sensing device and will shut down the engine if there is insufficient oil in the crankcase... be sure to check that too.
Let me know how it goes.
