    What happens when you don't fog a 2-stroke?

    Like the title says, What are the results of not fogging a seadoo motor and letting it sit for two years?

    My guess is the needle bearing rust to the connecting rod both on piston pin and on the crank, causing it to be stuck?

    Anyone have any experience to what not fogging will do?


    thanks,

    Dean

    Every situation will be different. Such as, was it stored indoors or out? Chances are, there is rust on the cylinder walls, crank, and bearings. You really will not know unless you pull it apart. Does the motor turn over?

    I believe that the motor is stuck. I haven't got the doo yet, but "airborn" and myself got a set that didn't get fogged cheap and was just wondering what to expect.

    What size engine is it Dean? That makes a difference too.

    I would pull the engine and inspect everything. If you got it running rust on a rod or wrist pin bearing will cause a catastophic failure within the first few hours. This will always cost more to repair as it will put a hole in the cases, trash the head, strip the rotary valve or break a cylinder sleeve. Been there done that, got the T shirt.

    i just did this on a 96xp.

    guy rode it and the battery died, he let it sit over 1 winter and into the summer.

    motor was locked.

    I got into it, the cylinders were rusted and one pistons rings were frozen to the side of the cylinder. bottom end was fine but it needs a fresh top end(bore/pistons).

    just a heads up!

    I got lucky one time with a 2002xpl. The motor had not been started in 3 years. I bought the ski cheap thinking that at least it would be worth its gold in parts. Took the motor out, pulled the head and looked in. It was in prestine condition. Motor is still running and we've put 80 hours on it so far.
    Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't.
    Reason he was asking is some motors are more forgiving that others when it comes to fogging.
