Default Re: Does mountain biking damage the motor?

Provided it's properly installed & maintained - no, no damage at all from trail riding, I do it myself quite a bit actually... you may find an occasional response lag as sometimes during the roughest bits the fuel gets agitated & the bowl hasn't filled properly, but that's rare & only one of my bikes does that (NT carb).

You also may find the stock 44t sprocket too tall for the technical, tricky bits on the trails... but ofc I just pedal those
