My sister lived in Amsterdam last summer and I specifically made her get a hat from that shop! Is it a popular place in Amsterdam?

I'm an EE that works in software but if I were to do it again, I would want to go the PE route. I almost went to get a Masters in PE during the recession but then the price of oil plummeted and passed on it. How is it working as a PE these days?

I replaced those when I put in my Rekluse, I was surprised by how much they have shrunk. Thought i got the wrong part when I was comparing to my old ones.

I'm using 1/4 inch staples, the same size as I pulled out of the seat. I've tried a hand stapler and then went out and bought a power stapler and both can't drive the staple into the plastic. Is a pneumatic stapler the only kind that is powerful enough

Carbon build up might be from pump gas I use. I always run 91, but most times it's from a generic gas station(Not Mobil or Shell) like the gas station that's right near Pala Raceway. After posting this, I did what everyone fears when they are putting

This is out of a diesel engine but I've never seen a gap between the rings and the skirt of a piston. Does this only work in low RPM motors?

Exactly the same experience for me. Rekluse was the biggest change, even more than going from stock suspension to Ohlins on my KTM.

So then the piston has probably been opened before? I'm thinking with the marks on it and the rings being all weird that someone might have done a dry fit and then returned it?

Added reply in a thread OEM KTM Piston questions 2/2/2019 12:33 PM

Looking at it more, it looks like that big ring is part of the oil ring. It fits but I guess the best way to find out is to check my stock piston when I pull it. Still not sure about the rings and wrist pin pre-installed. If it's OEM they did a sloppy

I just bought a new OEM piston for my 2014 KTM 450 sxf and I have some questions about it. I've always bought Weisco replacements so some things seemed a little off to me. First I wonder if this piston has been returned. The box had a seal on it(it wasn't
