Default Re: Piston Stuck

My question is how did you install rings on your piston without removing it from cylinder?

Did you wipe down piston and cylinder bore with 2 cycle oil before attempting to install piston?

If it was stuck in cylinder and you found metal shavings then then you have "big trouble in little china"

The retainer pins that are in piston that prevent rings from rotating should always be on the intake/ carb side of the engine, if your piston was stuck in the bore and has shaved metal then I can almost guarantee that you didnt have the rings in the correct position and Im still trying to figure out what you mean when you said you didnt remove the piston to I stall the rings......
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
