4stroke v 2stroke maintenance?

Recommended Posts

maintenance on the frame, suspension, linkage and bearings to the chassis will be the same 2 or 4 stroke. 

 

motor wise, you will have to maintain the fluids and filters at the same intervals

 

So now internal parts.  2 strokes with power valves have just as many parts as a 4 stroke with cams.  So you will have to pulldown and clean those components.  They don't wear like 4 stroke valves can, but need to be cleaned and maintained.  Now the cr500s don't have power valves, thus even less maintenance and parts.  Thus why they are so popular.

I get about 90 hrs woods riding before I  put a new single ring in my cr250.

 

I've seen 3 KTM 300 owners go 300 hrs between top ends.

Don't see why a 500 can't go at least that much if all you're doing is just woods riding.
