Great idea. I see a market for those. When I was about 12 my dad showed me how to use a hose clamp to compress the rings to install the cylinder. Comes in handy ever now and then.

I have a '73 or 4 XL350 engine that I have no use for. It's a complete motor with the top end removed. I have two heads, a side port and a center port. I would like to get it out of my shop but I hate to just throw it away. It's a good core for build ... more »

I'm not surprised. I think the hot set up on the sandy tracks over in Europe for the YZ cup 125's is to run about a 520 with 44-74 needle.

I was thinking about when I got those bars and I was way off on the timing when I said "mid to late 80's". It was actually around '94 or '95 when I got them. I had a '93 Husky 350 four stroke that I put the bars on and subsequently crashed, totally ruining ... more »

Well, that's pretty much how I see it. I think for the most part we are all just trying to help each other out here. Looks like it's dragging through the postal system right now. Hope you get it before Christmas.

Cool. I was just noticing the marks where the end gap meets on the back of the cylinder wall and the way it's polishing above the exhaust port. Are you a pro level rider that really wrings out a 125?

Looks like the ring end gap might be a little tight.

The KLX looks so much like a Chinese bike. Wish they'd release a street legal more dirt oriented version of the KX250F and KX450F

I actually have a pink cloth RENTHAL cover that came off Mike Kiedrowski's factory SR500 from the mid to late '80's. I don't know what happened to the pad itself, but I do have the cover if you want it. I had the complete set of bars and pad, but the

Yes, that would be correct. I did a little edit to my post indicating the direction of installation. When you are done the compression stack should have a little "float" in it. Meaning you can pull the face shims away from the piston face slightly and ... more »

You really have to have a dial indicator that you can put in the spark plug hole and set the piston to the proper height and then align the marks on the flywheel and pick up on the stator. Any other way is pretty much a crap shoot. The amount of movement ... more »

What FGR01 said and add a bad inner cartridge seal. Oil form the inner cartridge leaks out into the outer chamber and you end up with hydraulic lock of the outer tubes. You won't notice the loss of dampening because the "air spring" effect is so high ... more »
