Question Warm Up - 2 Stroke

Do you even need to warm up 2 strokes? Chain-saws and such, people just fire them up and start using them. Whats the advanatage of actually warming up a 2 stroke engine? Since the oil is all right there, cant you just gas and go?

On my little scoot (50cc 2 stroke) I usually just start it with the choke, let the choke off, blip the throttle alittle bit and take off. Would a motocross bike be any differant?

Thanks

not a whole heck of a lot different..but the bikes by defenition "warming them up" is to allow the cylinder to expand with the faster expanding piston...as well the clutch oil (being a wet clutch system) also needs to move around a bit...when the trans is cold on a 2 smoke no matter how many times you pull the clutch in...nothing happens...the clutch plates are "static" with oil..untill the oil gets sloshed around a bit...the trans in basicaly stuck in gear

it dosnt take a lot to warm up a 2 stroke bike...just a few minutes of easy throttle...just to let everything expand

I just let it idle till the radiators feel a little warm. Then I ride for a few minutes just in first gear under half throttle. It's not rocket science, just get it good and warm before opening it up.

Always warm it up. That includes your weed wacker and lawn mower.

If it's got an engine, it should be warm before you use it. Just makes for a longer lasting engine and GREATLY decreases your chances of a siezed engine or increased engine wear.

the difference between a MX bike and a weed wacker is that the bike costs allot more. Running your bike hard without warm up is a sure way cause premature wear and lose performance.

LOL, yeah, but the weed wacker still costs money to fix. Warming it up, is still a good idea regardless of price, since it would seem to me that longevity is always a goal.

uhm.... I don't know; I'm thinking doing this sort of thing could get your picture in the paper, and a little talk with the folks down at the station.
