Default Re: 2-stroke 'over heating' myth...

They are called "heat engines" for a reason.
I'm really old and I have never siezed a 2 stroke
that was jetted correctly. Why? Because the hotter they get,
they start going "rich" because the proper mixture at "normal
temperatures" starts vaporizing more completely. So you might
build up more carbon in the combustion chamber, but, siezure?
I have not seen it ( with proper jetting)
Power loss?
It's a heat engine.
Show it some mercy and you won't have to buy parts.
But, correct jetting is YOUR responsibility.
Step up.
