My Honda CR250 has a spooging problem. It is not that it is nesiseraly because it has spooge comming out of the exhuast but where it is coming out of the exhaust that worries me. I Always though that spooge was the oil that didn't get burned and came out the tip of the silencer of two strokes. well not much is coming out of the silencer but where the pipe connects to the silencer is where it is all coming out. Its like there is a leak in the pipe where it connects to the silencer and is dripping out oil. Is this normal? How do i got about fixing it if its abnormal? I am sick of having to clean the oily spot on the frame after every ride.

Is it that time of the month already? 2 stroke dirt bikes are NOT supposed to spooge! Anytime you have an issue,always do a search first! There are a gabillion threads on this subject,specifically!!! http://dirtrider.net/forums3/showthread.php?t=92818, rule out mechanical issues,learn to jet! EPA disasters are not dirtbikes! Say no to spooge!

My 05 started spooging from where the pipe meets the silencer when I sent the pipe off to get a dent removed. It spooged in this place after I put things back together. Recently I tore my suspension apart, removing the pipe and silencer to get the rear shock out, when I put it back together, no more spooge. Must have been a bad connection. My bike is 100% stock except for suspension revalve and resprung.

I don't mind spooge, but when it drips on the swingarm, I use simple green and my pressure washer to remove it. Chain lube is next to impossible to remove this way.

Believe me,you did not fix it! The spooge is loading up in your silencer,which will have a further negative effect on your engine!

Fresh Engine- Check

Proper Jetting- not sure how to jet yet? Also there is a huge dent in the exhaust where the chamber is and it looks light it could severely restrict air flow coming out , would that mess up the engine jetting?

Quality Fuel- I bought 93 premium gas at the pump and the right mixing ratio of Champion two cycle oil to mix with it. As of now im still running the previous owners gas. Maybe he used regular unleaded and or put wrong ratio of oil to gas.

I did do a search on this topic but then again when it comes to finding stuff im like a deaf bat.

Bats hear? Try the advanced options. And yes,dents will greatly change performance. Get permission to stick your clean pipe in the freezer. Get the good duct tape and cross and wrap the piss out of the header flange. At least 25 across and 25 around,stretch it as you apply it. Fill it up with tap water and seal the other end the same way,make sure you get all the air out. Leave in the freezer for 8 hours. It will pop out a lot of dents and creases,some rumors about seams also! Plan b is more dangerous,plan c is fleabay. Now is a good time to check your silencer packing.

I must admit that is an interesting way to get out a dent but what stops it from stretching out the rest of the pipe that isn't dented? I will take a look at e buy, and plan B im guessing involves a hammer of some sort?

Plan B is to plug the ends, with one end having a fitting to fill it with air, about 20psi, then heat..

make sure the plugs are in tight!

Steel tends to crack and tear when you work it below freezing temperatures.

I've used the compressed air and a torch to pop dents. I've also split the pipe along the seams, hammered the dents out, and welded it back together. You have to do some of the welding with the pipe on the frame because the pipe will tweak otherwise.

How old is that gas he gave you? I doubt that is the problem, but old gas should be disposed of. Those new style sealed gas cans with the plunger style spouts may keep gas fresh longer.
How far from the cylinder is the dent? If its in the fat part that comes back along the engine by your leg it shouldn't hurt it much, unless it is a very large dent. Take a pic and post it up.
The other possibility would be a tranny side crank seal.

Its a Pro Circuit pipe and it runs at about $200 new so would it be a bad idea down the road when I actually need all that power just to buy a new one? As of now I don't ride WOT and barley get out of 3rd gear so the power is more than enough as of now, unless it is doing more than effecting the power but is messing up the jetting then I will buy a new pipe sooner than later. Il see if I can get a pic up for you guys to take a look at. To give you a size reference its about the size of an average hand that is pushed in 3/4 inch in some places.

You could always use high-temp RTV sealant, understanding that you still need to get your bike jetted properly for a performance gain. Well more like performance restore. It does help keep the bike clean though!
