TE300 Top End Rebuild, how many hours?

Hey guys! I wanted to get your thoughts on how many hours you run your 2 strokes before you rebuild the top end? Please post your hours.

Still original at 150 hours. It's lost a tiny bit of power, but that's not so bad in my view. I will redo at 200 unless something specifically moves up my schedule.

A quick compression test is usually a good indicator. I don't have a berg 2t, but on my husky 144 @200 hours it was due for a piston and rings.

Is it hard starting? Does it foul spark plugs? Is there excessive smoke out the silencer and oil dripping from the pipe at the cylinder? Does it have low power? Is the compression weak? Can you hear any rattle from the cylinder?

If any of these it is time.

The user manual has a hour reference point, but that is all it is. Some riders are harder than others, climate and temperature are also a facture. Are in you a super hot climate? The list can go on. I would recommend the rebuild when you find a issue unless you have deep pockets, then once a season. I have heard of some machines with 200 hours and still running strong, then some with 10 and done in. If you are mechanical and don't mind pulling the top end, take a look check clearance etc.

It will all depend on how its ridden and maintained. I agree, a compression test will be the best indicator. A friend of mine has a KTM 250 exc, 2011 model, has 380 hrs on, he bought it new and it still starts dead easy, touch that button and the motor jumps to life, hot or cold. His wife has a KTM 200, did the topend at about 200 hrs. My sister has a 125 Berg, sitting at 130 hr, no issues so far.

Maybe do an inspection like FE350 said, and decide based on that.

My 2013 TE300 was done at 62 hours. It showed slight wear but was good overall. I am going to wait until it has 75 hours this time around. That is about as far as I will push it. It will go longer because there isn't much to the two strokes but a $110 piston is cheaper than catastrophic engine failure. Plus I want to keep it tight.

This is all and fine to throw a piston into the cylinder, But to redo the top end correctly you will need a cylinder, piston and rings as well the gaskets. When the piston rings wear, the coating on the cylinder wears as well. So to hone or bore and re cote is a cost as well if you chose this route. I like the idea of the kits so everything is new

Nikasil survives better than the pistons with rings, so no need to change out the cylinder until it's really worn which will not happen that quickly.

Hi best way is to get front pipe off (two springs two bolts) and with a light you can inspect condition of piston through exhaust port checking for signs ov where as it's the piston it's self it what you need to worry about
