    jaguar replied to a thread [Electrical] jnmotors racing coil in 2-Stroke Engines
    No matter what head is there, the only way to know compression is to measure it with a compression tester. There are some cheap ones available for less than $20. I consider having one absolutely essential if you have modified the engine. Since you have an expansion chamber then you probably...

    jaguar replied to a thread [Electrical] jnmotors racing coil in 2-Stroke Engines
    32 is fairly good already so don't expect too much increase. more important is lessening of vibration, better idling, more consistent running, longer bearing life.

    jaguar replied to a thread broken frame in 2-Stroke Engines
    maybe you ride crappy streets with ditches maybe you are too damn fat maybe it is an old frame with rust inside the tube maybe you never did anything to lessen engine vibration and it was vibrating like crazy which weakened the frame and finally broke it

    Try using thinner rubber where the engine connects to the frame. Check the frame for cracks.

    you will need an external voltage source, 12 volts up to 14, again, like a car. What brand and model light do you have?

    "till TDC lines up"? that sounds like it is only for use on cars with easily adjustable distributors, not anything like most 2 strokes where you have to take it apart to make a slight change in timing by rotating the plate a bit. I'll bet my lunch money that you haven't tried to use it on your...

    jaguar replied to a thread Magneto update in 2-Stroke Engines
    I think it is an improved version of the old CDI/coil but with the same ignition curve which means you are asking for trouble if you increase the compression or increase the peak RPM. Blowers probably don't rev higher than 5K anyway. If I were you Fabian I would swap engines just out of curiosity...

    adjust the throttle stop check for junk partially blocking fuel flow in the carb jet tighten screws holding on the stator coil clean the plug plane head and cylinder mating surfaces using sandpaper on glass (to insure no head leak reducing cylinder compression)

    jaguar replied to a thread Fuel problems in General Discussion
    the full filter means the supply of gas from the tank is flowing but you can have a little trash clogging the main jet in the carb which would greatly reduce engine power or kill it

    jaguar replied to a thread Hi in Introduce Yourself
    I want to know how the new guy got banned. I got banned from the other forum by showing a moderator he didn't know half as much as he thought he did. I'm too addicted to the thrill of a 2 stroke coming on the pipe to ride a 4 stroke.

    Up to what RPM will it go? How much did it cost? I am offering a DIY alternative to expensive cheaply made timing lights. I'm not lying, I bought 3 different ones and the best one worked for 5 minutes. All cheap Chinese junk. If you got one that actually works, then good for you. Tell others...

    I thought so myself but after buying 3 different ones, all not usable for 2 stroke timing, all I can assume is that most of them are made for 4 stroke engines. We live in a 4 stroke world, sigh

    point at the rotating magnet. but first find top dead center (where piston is exactly at the top of its stroke) and mark both the magnet and the steel plate of the stator coil so that at TDC the marks are adjacent. From the TDC mark on the plate make more marks to the left of it every 2mm which...

    you have an air leak which causes it to run too lean which is why it wants to either do nothing or rev to the moon (but not under load)

    jaguar replied to a thread [Engine Trouble] Engine slow down and speeds up at high RPMs in 2-Stroke Engines
    normal expansion chambers rob Peter to pay Paul. That is, they reduce mid range power to boost top rpm power. That works fine if you have gears to shift to stay in the powerband but it is all wrong for a 1 speed bike. All you can do is reduce and stretch out the baffles return wave to have more mid...

    Can't you STFU and take a compliment?! You've been on call nearly 24/7. It's appreciated man.... even though you made me order the WRONG TIRES! :P
