SSDT set up tips

Recommended Posts

Some good set-up/prep tips for the SSDT for Beta & GG- probably good general information for all.

WOW!!! Some heavy duty advice there! Good to know about the jetting and operational differences between section riding and road riding even for us that will not EVER ride a SSDT but might ride a high speed dirt or paved road between trails.. :thumbsup:

"14. YOU MUST USE THE CHOKE ON THE ROAD. Keep easing off to the ‘rich’ spot is the best technique. Tip; vary

your speed and throttle when you are on the road. Holding the throttle in a constant place on any 2 stroke is fatal.

The engine will run very weak, detonate and easily seize up.

Always ride a long with a finger hovering the clutch lever. If you feel the engine tighten or if the piston ‘nips’, pull

that clutch lever fast ! If you seize the piston, don’t panic. Let the engine cool down a little and try and push the

kickstart down. If the kickstart is absolutely solid, you are in trouble ! The cylinder needs to be removed and

renewed with a new piston. If the kickstart will push down, you’ve been lucky. Start the bike and carry on, steadily

for a while. The engine will rattle but usually quietens down after a few miles. "

ha!
