How To Clean the Exhaust Pipe on Your Two Stroke Motor

Two stroke motors are widely used in a variety of machines due to numerous advantages over four strokes (namely, fewer moving parts, lighter weight for the same horsepower, less maintenance required, etc.) Because of the lack of valves controlling the intake and exhaust, back pressure is very important in these engines. An exhaust pipe full of carbon deposits can reduce the overall performance of your motor; if you have a two stroke dirt bike or scooter, follow these steps to make sure you are not being robbed of precious horsepower.

Slosh it around and let it sit for a while; then, slosh it around again and let it sit in a different position; do this as many times as you can and if possible allow the chemical to work overnight. While you are waiting, you can take a look at the exhaust port on the cylinder head, if there is build up here too, clean it up VERY CAREFULLY with a little brake cleaner and a rag; turn the engine so that the exhaust port is covered by the piston, that way you’ll avoid pushing deposits into the chamber; don’t use a screw driver, as you could damage the piston.

After all the chemical is out and the exhaust is dry, you can put it back in the machine. The engine may smoke a little more than usual at first, this is due to the residue of brake cleaner getting burnt off; make sure you run your machine outdoors or in a well ventilated area. Make sure also that there is a good seal between the exhaust and the cylinder head.

Without resorting to aftermarket and performance pipes, which manipulate the back pressure for different results, keeping a clean exhaust is most important in two stroke bikes; it will ensure you have proper low end torque and acceleration.
