Seriously? I dont think it can help with suspension set up but maybe Swap my bar to non twinwall could help with vibration and staff?

Thanks for the reply mate but i think you’re wrong with the honing stuff It worth checking but As much as i know 2 smokers shouldn’t be honed no matter what, especially those with nikasil plating

I don’t think so But here’s some more photos, all these where taken long time ago, the bike is running new piston since then for about 40 hours. It is just starting to feel like little slower and lacking compression that was one of the triggers to this

It is make sense that it comes from the exhaust bridge becaus this point located just in front of it This is exactly what i asked initially Maybe should I sand it little with fine sand paper 1500+? or maybe even diamond paper?

If so, why the surface of the piston that come in touch with the piston bridge seems to get more friction It can’t reduce compression and piston “life”?

How many “too many hours”? This piston was taken off after 68 hours as for preventative maintenance, not because of lack of performance. The service manual says every 7.5 hours if i am not wrong but it refers to pro guy that race and taking a factor ... more »
