The piston works it was a piston for pre 89 dt125rs from yam bits, the bike has a lot of felt compression now seems way more than it had when it originally had a rebore and piston making me wonder if the rings were defective from new on the original piston, i did tighten the squish up just a tad with a slightly thinner gasket but I highly doubt that's the reason for the increase in compression before the kickstarter had litteraly no fight back on your foot or hand and it was like that the whole time I rode it.
@SpookDog I have a bike I'm building with an 05 dtx engine I'm trying to do a crossover of parts the bike has spark with it's cdi but won't fire so I would like to try my dtr cdi on it last time I did so I couldn't get a spark since my dtr needs to be stripped down I figure nows a good time to try again
@declan It would save you a lot of trouble in the long run and be a wise investment in your bike for-sure!!! :winking_face: :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: :winking_face: :face_with_stuck-out_tongue_winking_eye:
@Glynn123 yeah but I’ve heard loads over the years about what you have to do to push the bikes without getting it impounded but the problem is practices change from one police branch to another and my specific police impound no matter what they essentially do what they want all of the main criminals and such have the police payed off so there’s no way I’d chance a near 2 grand bike)
