Started right up like always even after all theses years. So at my cousins last year when riding it. Pretty much seized up and the spark plug got fire hot so bought a new spark plug and it still wouldn't start up. So i took it down a hill and put it in first and got it running. But it was hard too keep running than after awhile it ran perfect again,
So i started too put some caps of 2 stroke oil in the gas tank when a guy told us start doing that, Because the oil injection pump goes bad, So every tank i did that, But today i just notice it suppose too be a oil tank under the seat... So i took the seat off which i never did before. And yep the tank was empty....
I was always told that when you add oil into the engine the oil pump picks it up from there. Even my dad said that which he was wrong. But back than i didn't know much about dirt bikes so i didn't know..
But i just went out and filled it up with 2stroke oil. But how would i know if the pump even works anymore?? For some reason it always starts on the first kick and runs well. But after about a hour it will act up like loosing power and stalls like always.which is probably because it didn't have oil, And ony some in the tank which i ony put some because i always thought it was getting oil from the pump.
I know alot about these motors now and always thought it was weird that it didn't have a tank under the seat like my 05 blaster use too. But the guy took that off and told me too mixed it for now on. But ya found out it does..Bike have been driven alot these pass 3 months too. sometimes i didn't even put oil in the gas tank.. But still ran fine for some reason even when my friends took 2 people on it which i told them not too.
But ya i do feel stupid not looking into this info sooner.. So do you think it did any damage? It runs fine and starts fine but it does get it times that it will loose power. And bog too a stall but will start right back up.
Pretty much everyone call my pw80 a destructible bike sense ony things i replace on this bike in the 18 years i owned it is spark plug last year, And front inner tube about a month ago lol.
Also how much oil does it eat before it runs out like in hours?
Just bought some sea foam off amazon couple hours ago before i even found out about this so will run that into it when i get that.
No wonder why it never blew any smoke like a 2stroke.. Always thought that was odd.
