I feel i am a pretty competent small engine mechanic. Ive rebuilt TONS of 2 and 4 strokes but im out of my realm in terms of the X30 engine and am looking for some insight.
I kart on a club level budget and yeah maybe the rotax would have been a slightly more logical choice but frankly the simplicity of the x30 made me grab hold and not let go. I play with carbs all day at work, last thing i want to do is play with carbs racing.
Im closing in on 8hrs on my top end and feel i can tackle this myself over the winter and save myself a lot of money. 2021 id send it out for a top/bottom build though.
My main questions are in terms of the cylinder. For dirt bikes, atvs, mowers, blowers, etc (as long as they dont grenade) id just measure the piston size, buy the next size up piston and have a respectful shop bore and hone cylinder and id assemble it. I dont think thats the case how it works with these engines??
Ive found the manual with clearance specs but it doesn’t say anything about the factory specs of new parts so im a bit dumb founded as to how to know what size piston i have/would need as to who to have the cylinder bore and honed as well.
