    OEM fan kit

    The 4 stroke fan kits were set to come on at 95oC which is about 203oF. I’d think they are the same, so ur not hot enough yet.

    Changing piston on a TPI exc

    I don’t know how u ride. I race mine at expert level, I wouldn’t say I’m hard on the engine but I’m not soft on it either. I changed my piston at 80 hours and it looked really good. I think you could get 150hours out of it if u r not reving it hard. Best way is to take exhaust off and have a look it piston that way.

    Changing piston on a TPI exc

    Basically the same as any other 2 stroke. Just unplug the injectors, disconnect the quick release fuel fitting and unplug the temp sensor from the head. Take a note of which plug went on which injector as it’s easy to mix them up. After that it’s just the same as changing a piston on previous models. No need to remove injectors from the cylinder.

    2019 300XC W TPI

    I have a Husqvarna TE250i. The water pressure method is a lot safer in my opinion. It won’t remove small sharp dents but it will bring bent or badly dented pipe back to life.

    Starting after stalling sxf 250 07

    My bike starts fine hot its just when i stall it. I think it is just using stock jets, but not sure as i have not had it from new. i have just bought a jd jet kit so hopefully that will help.
  8. Hey if i fall off my sxf or stall on a corner it is really hard 2 start. To get it to start again i have 2 turn off the fuel then tip the bike over so it all runs out of the carb then kick it a pile of times. If i just stop it with the kill switch it starts really easy with one kick. It has had a new piston about 3 hours ago, but it was doing this before i put the new piston in it aswell. I never need the choke to start it from cold and i never need the hot start lever. Is my carb set up wrong? Can anyone help?

    sxf 250 using ALOT of oil

    If it was the scarper ring would there not be alot of smoke from the exaust. I have never striped down a 4 stroke an i wanna sorta know what im lookin for first before it try anythin!
  12. Hey i have just got an 07 sxf 250, it runs an starts great but when im using it a while it will use ALOT of oil. When im just out for a 15 min run round the yard it doesnt use any but once i start racin it it uses alot. I was out for about 2 hours last sat an i had 2 stop every 15 mins to top up the oil, it used about 2 liters. There is no blue smoke an i cant smell it bein burnt so i dont think its the piston. When i stop i notice some dripping from the breather pipe. Any ideas? cheers
