Default 1999 KX 60

     

I have a dirt bike that I have taken in on trade and I really do not know much about this bike or any other for that mater . I am trying to find out if it is a 2 stroke or 4 stroke for one . Where to find out what year it is for another.
The bike didnít run when I got it and had a sticky spot in the motor when turning it over so I removed the head and realized it is going to need a complete rebuild. I am an automotive tech and am familiar with repairing car engines . Is there any I should know before attempting to rebuild this engine myself

2 stroke...
Take the vin number to a dealer and he can identify the year. Or you can search it on line.

That's not an overly complicated engine, but you will want a service manual to help guide you through the rebuild process. If you didn't get one with the bike, you may be able to find one online for free or I have had good luck purchasing manuals through Tradebit.

An easy way to tell most 2 strokes from 4 strokes is the exhaust pipe- 4 strokes almost all have tubular exhaust pipes and 2 strokes almost all have a much larger, less regular-shaped exhaust. There is a definite sound difference in the 2 when running as well.
