2002 ktm 250 dirtbikes oil leak between cylinder and head by exhuast port


Hi, Anonymous to find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.

Engine Compression for Stock '08 KTM 250XC


Hey E..
176psi is fine... I have been a factory trained Yamaha for 43 years...I have seen engines run fine with 90psi..(not racing engines).. Compression is a good indicator of overall top condition of an engine. Compression Ratio is different than compression psi. Now that you have established your baseline.. you want to maintain it!!
....If you want the engine to last.. run at least a 28:1 OIL/FUEL ratio.. even a 24:1 or 20:1 is better *... settle on a ratio and RUN this ratio at ALL times... if you are fouling plugs.. get a PROFESSIONAL that KNOWS how to "jet" an engine.. you should be able to drop the main jet one size..and maybe raise the needle jet clip UP one groove..this will lean out the mixture to the correct FUEL/AIR ratio and you won't foul spark plugs and the engine will LAST a LOT longer.. >> ... *Remember..the two-cycle oil you mix with the gas ALSO lubricates the main crankshaft bearings and the rod bearings.. (replacing those are $$$$$!!)
.. If you have more questions, reply to me on here...

Jetting size 06 sx250f


jetting is not an exact procedure. too many variable altitude, temperature, humidity, gaz.. does your bike presently run rich or lean ..ect..

250cc engine


250cc engines vary on size and design by make and model. It is possible to put on in however you will have to make a bunch of modifications and possibly make some new engine mounts and on top of that it may not be a Kawasaki motor tha ends up fitting. For the difference in power its not really worth the hassle unless you are on an adventure..
