200t starting to smoke

Recommended Posts

As the title says, my good old  200t is definitely starting to smoke a little, particularly chogging, don't know if its the summer heat or not, but just wondering what its a sign of? What's wearing out finally?!!

Have not changed any variables such as 2 stroke oil recently

 

cheers

Is it exhaust smoke, or smoke from oil caked onto the barrel fins/exhaust getting hot?, can be bad when chogging down due to long cuts.

Idiot i used to work with filled his old Scirocco up with petrol/diesel mix we drained out of a customer's car. In his bizarre logic the mix would "clean the carburettor".

 

It didn't, and he ended up rebuilding the carb as the diesel ate all the seals or something.
