Hi! If you have fouling plugs then the problem could be on the plug boots. They may be worn causing lack of current to the plugs. If the right side cylinders are hot is because of the fouling plugs. They are pretty forced thats why its hot. Try replacing the plug boots and see how it goes. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Front cylinder fouls


try cleaning the carbs, changing plugs, and cleaning the fuel tank. If that doesn't work, it might be the piston rings are getting worn out or you cylinder sleeves need a honing.

2005 Honda CR 85 R keeps fouling spark plugs


Hi, William and the usual suspects are:
1. The first thing to do if your spark plug has been fouled is to check the air filter. If it's really dirty, that makes it difficult for air to get through to the engine, causing a rich condition. Either clean it thoroughly with some Air Filter Cleaner or buy a new filter. Before you put it back in the air-box, treat with some air filter oil or spray. "WARNING" adding too much oil can also clog up the filter, resulting in another fouled plug.
2. While the gas/oil ratio doesn't equate to what the jetting is, you can still foul plugs, or worse, if the mixture is wrong. Depending on your bike, it's best to look at your owner's manual for the correct ratio. For most 2-stroke motocross bikes, a ratio is 32:1 or 40:1, the gas being 32 or 40, and oil being 1. For those that don't it, it means that for every 128 ounces (one gallon) of gas, you add 4 ounces of 2-stroke oil for a 32:1 ration, or just over 3 ounces for a 40:1 ratio.
If you have too much oil in the mixture (such as 12:1), then you will probably end up fouling the plug because it is more difficult to burn that much oil. Don't try to cut corners with the oil though, because it's very important for your dirt bike's engine. 2-stokes need the oil for lubrication on the cylinder walls, so if you don't have enough (or any for that matter) then the cylinder walls will run dry, causing it to overheat and seize the engine very quickly. So it's very important that you put in the right mixture pre-mix to your 2-stroke gas tank.
Also, 2-strokes have reeds that air and fuel go through into the cylinder, so if they are cracked or broken the bike will not run right. This could cause the plug to foul, so before you go out and buy anything expensive, make sure the reeds are still good.
3. While this usually isn't the main problem, it could be that your spark plug isn't burning hot enough. Having a hotter spark will ignite the fuel stronger, leaving less residual gas/oil in the cylinder that could cause the plug to foul. This "ISN'T" the best choice, but I'd say it's safe to go one plug hotter than stock. Keep an eye on the plug color you're looking for a light tan color anything whiter and you could burn a hole in your piston. Spark plug manufacturers aren't always the same, so make sure you find out how they rate them.
4. Almost every motocross bike comes rich from the factory (especially Honda 2-Strokes when they were being made). It's usually a pretty simple fix, but many riders are too lazy and would rather continue buying plugs instead of spending a few bucks on jets.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Faulty ignition coil low output.

Right hand cylinder on my rd200 not firing properly, the bike will run, starts perfect, exhaust gets warm on right hand side but no power to ride, any ideas?. have put in new spark plugs, leads and caps,...


Assuming you properly cleaned the carburetor low speed circuit.check the list below.
1.Check the compression on the right hand cylinder.
2.check your points,pull the point cover off start the bike and watch the points if you see bright sparks at the contact point the condenser is is bad.
3.If your constantly getting an oil fouled plug the right hand crankshaft seal is leaking transmission oil into the crankcase.
4.check your fuel flow from that line to that carb.
Hope this helps you determine whats going.

I have a 85 gsxr 750 running rich on the left


Hi Chris,
You will have to recheck the float level (in the float chamber) of those two carburators, reset if necessary.
You may also have to reset the air-mixture screw for both of those carbs. Standard procedure to set htem is tighten them all the way in making sure not to over tighten to avoid damaging the sharp end of the screw, and thn to open 2 and a half to 3 turns.
You can thn reset them as the engine is running + -- either way.
Hope this helps!

Hello my tdm regularly gases up on the left


i would definatley check for vacuum leaks . Then check the diaphrams in the carbs. Also check to make sure that the float in the carb. It sounds to me like for some reason that cylinder or side of the engine is getting to much fuel and fouling out the plug. Loss of compression would have to be pretty substianal to cause that kind of problem .

I have a 2003 kx250 i run it with mc1 50:1 and when i ride it slow around my campsite it will foul a plug and when im out in the trails getting on it hard it will run hard what sould i do so i dont foul...


I would stay with the same heat range(BR8) to stay on the safe side. You didn't say if when you are at the camp sight the bike is cold and just off the truck or warm and right off the trail. But usually alot of 2strokes need to be cleaned out when their being warmed up or they can foul a plug. Get it started, blip the throttle a few times to get some heat in the cylinder and then hold it open until you hear it rev faster and run smooth. Thats usually enough.
