Default Re: Decarbonizing without disassembly

Water to decarbon a 2 stroke? The rice thing is a joke right?Sounds very iffy. Carbon is a major factor in rings sticking and can scratch up the cylinder walls quite well when bits of it break of the piston head. But you know that. Might be advisable though once in a while to prolong the life of these engines especially when run rich or with all that Castor oil varnish. I'll stick by my regimen and report with pics when eventually I fry the engine and dissect it. Hopefully not for a long time.
