Honda Files Patents for Brand New FI 2-Stroke Engine


Bryan Bosch

Two-strokes are far simpler machines than four-stroke engines. They’re also lighter, easier to work on, and downright angrier, pumping out a lot more power per cubic centimeter of displacement, which has won them a lot of fans. But they’ve had a reputation for belching out a fair bit of smoke and unburned fuel, a situation that just couldn’t fly alongside tightening emissions regulations around the world, so they’ve fallen out of favour. But now there’s a glimmer of hope. Earlier this month, Honda submitted a patent application for a brand new two stroke motor that uses direct fuel injection for a cleaner burn and better piston cooling. We may yet see a resurrection of the ring-dingers.

I don't see how the fuel goes thru the reed assy, lubes the crank, etc, then goes where?fuel mix goes up to intake port, or...? AND the valve is used for what, straight gas injection, or.....? I understand D.F.I. technology, but im tryin to see how it lubes w/oil on bottom, and injects fuel on top, therefore gas burns and oil mostly lubricates and doesn't "burn" in the traditional fashion.....

I first worked as a mechanic in a Honda shop in 1965.   Early on, it was clear that Honda made a really excellent product, especially in those dark days of Lucas electrics and oil leaks.  I don't presently own a Honda bike, but will always be a Honda fan and am thrilled to learn they are moving into developing an emissions-compliant 2-stroke engine.  If anyone can "get it right", it's the folks at "Big Red".

 

Bravo, Honda

      I searched and couldn't find a similar thread. Modding season is upon us.I cleaned and oiled my air filter, changed my 13 tooth cs to a 14, cleaned and lubed the chain, changed the oil and filter, and installed my Battery Tender. It was a good day. Tomorrow, I ride.

      Hi, I've recently purchased a 2 stroke 2007 Honda CR 250.
      The bike has been standing for 6 months.
      I topped up the coolant till just below the neck and replaced the radiator cap.
      As soon as I start the bike the coolant pours out of the overflow pipe, if I rev, more seems to empty out. Haven't driven the bike as I'm scared it might lead to bigger issues.
      Any idea what might be the problem or what I can do before I go a mechanic and pay through my teeth

      I have some CRF250 Exhaust repack kits.  They are for the CRF250  Honda Dual Exhaust setups.
      These are new, I just never used them. 
      Asking $65 + free shipping to the lower 48 states.
      price is for both kits; enough to do two bikes

      Alright, so up behind my house I got a mountain full of trails to explore, but my dad won't let me go at it unless I have some sort of device that tracks my location and has the capability to send an emergency message in case I get hurt. 
       
      I was wondering if there were any good GPS tracking devices that would have those functions? 
       
      Thanks!
