86 lt 250r Need help.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have a 86 ltr250 I got for cheap. Runs an rides good but I'm not doing that any because it needs some love. Definatly lower on compression. I've owned a few two strokes but never have rebuilt top end on them. What is needed an or would a Manuel be best to go by being a newb to it? Lol. Also slight oil leak into stator cover so in gonna replace crank seal first. Oil is grey, is that my rings bad causing low compression an fuel to leak into the bottom end? Or is that the double lipped seal for clutch side? Idk if it's water or not, doesn't really smell like fuel either an I'm not losing any coolent. Help guys! It's much appreciated

its verry  simple procedure to tear the head and cylinder jug off. recomend a light bore of the cylinder an new piston and rings.  get the oversized piston  and have cylinder bored to piston. oil sel as for the leak in stator cove..

Grey oil as in milky colored? This is usually coolant and could indicate a blown head gasket, which would also account for the low compression.

Definitely get a manual. It can save you some agonizing problems like finding out the bolt you just stripped was actually a reverse thread (been there, done that).

Oops! Just noticed the date of the original post. Sorry.

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      Any luck with manuals?
       
      I need a carb in the owrst way and am have gone down a lot of rabbit holes (over 90 tabs and counting). Factory calls for a Mikuni BST34/1 (I think, but need to check manual). I don't care what or who makes the carb, just need a basic reliable carb. No Racing etc, just puttering. I currently only have the cable with the round slide attached.
      Don't care if its round if I know what other parts to get to  make it all function.
       
      Thanks for help, and listening, gonna go chase more rabbits I guess.

      Came here for help, If it’s in the wrong place I’ll move. I’ve got a 2000 model Polaris Magnum 500 that runs strong as can be for about 25 mins until warm, then sputters and loses power. Took it to a shop and they say it’s low compression and they will have to swap the entire engine. Seems a bit much and costs more than the entire bike. Was wondering if anyone has seen this and what the fix was. When I hear compression I think of gaskets, not an entire engine. Seems like if it was that bad it wouldn’t have power cold. I’m at a loss. Any help is appreciated greatly.

      I have a 2004  Kawasaki KLF300. I’m not sure What is the black/yellow, brown, and red wire wrapped together in the wire hornets of a klf300. I got it used and notice some wires not connected. They are located in the front area 

      The reason why I am asking because I’m having issues with it firing up. I cleaned the carb put new spark plugs and gas.
