More two stroke questions (maintenance)

Recommended Posts

I know this is a thumper forum, however can someone direct me to a good two stroke forum or else tell me in your own experience...? Alright, i have just pulled apart my buddies top end on a 97 kx250. Got the pistons, got the new gasket kit... need honing to get that cross hatching back. Has anyone done it themselves? How easy? What to use? Flexhone? Whats the method? He wants to get out of it cheap but there is a machine shop right down the street if i must. Thanks. RIP

the cylinder is nikasil plated, i myself have a 97 kx80. the plating is really hard so..you might want to check the i.d of the bore and if its out of spec get it replated. make sure the powervalve is working properly too, i hear the KIPS is major pain in the ass to time and whatnot. btw; my dad tried honing the cylinder and it didnt do a thing.
