Default Re: hello ! ( and about engine temps...)

Welcome Mike. Glad you've joined us.
As for your cooling question: Pure advertising and marketing hype.

Many of us run our 2 strokers for many miles, even in hot summer temperatures. We don't have any heating problems. Use the right oil at recommended mix ratios, don't sit and idle for long periods (there is no internal cooling fan) and an unmodified 2 cycle engine won't need a "cool down period".

Some highly modified engines can run hotter than a stock one but even those aren't prone to excessive overheating.
