Re: smoke at startup
OK, thanks guys.
I know, I was thinking maybe valve seals, but then I thought that if the seals were sitting atop the guides, wouldn't they be out of the oil when it sat? But maybe not. Some how it's getting in there.
To answer one of the questions, it has to sit for a while, like over 3-4 hours. In 3-4 hours, it's cold enough to have to use the choke to start it up again, but it doesn't smoke.
If I was going to do the seals, I was going to try the compressed air in the sparkplug hole trick to avoid taking off the top end. That would make it hard to check the guides, wouldn't it? I'd be more inclined to leave it smoke then take the top end off because I took the top off another trx200 I have and it hasn't run since [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] I don't know if I didn't get the chain on the right tooth or what, but what a pain in the @ss. Anyway, how long would new seals last if the guides were a little loose?
Thanks for all the suggestions, guys. I'll try to get an adapter for the compression guage I have. The sparkplug hole doesn't fit any of the things I have for the guage. Any ideas on finding the right adapter for the guage?
