I have been lucky enough to be the new owner of an 96 XRV750. As we all know there are not many here in the US and I'm excited to get her on the road. I'm working on rebuilding the motor and I can not find info on what grit of hone to use to re-ring. I have factory rings and the bores...
I am looking for a pair of pistons ( 0.25) for my RD03. ( 13102-MN8-305 )
So far, all websites with OEM parts doesn't have it anymore.
Maybe somebody can help me with some info.
I already bought the 0.25 rings, and prepared the cylinders, all I need is the pistons.
I have just had a rebore on my 92 Donnie.
What oil should I be using to bed the rings and bore.
Should I stay away from semi synthetic?,
Should I use some cheap oil for 500 miles then change filter and oil for some semi synthetic?
Your thoughts please
i'm planning to replace the piston rings , valve seals and sort the head along with replacing the timing chain set on my dommie.
My question is , can all of that be done while the engine is in the frame??
My shiny new piston and rings have arrived but which ring goes to the top? There is no edge profile to worry about but one ring clearly has a shiny edge and the other is dull. There is no marking to indicate which is the top either. So lets have a group guess shall we??????
Many thanks. Ben...
I’m restoring my RD03, I have just taking the entire bike apart and will start with the frame and engine.
The engine was burning about 1L oil for 2,500km and most of the seals are leaking so I will replace all the seals and put some new piston rings in.
My question to ye is what...
I am curious. When I removed my center stand before the restoration, I didn't have these rubber o-rings. It seems my center stand has a little side-to-side play. I bought two from my ,ocal hardare store and they are smaller. They do fit the two sleeves/ pivots. Where do these o-rings go? I think...
I sweared over and over last night when I reinstalled the RD07's collector. I tried fitting them using the copper rings and it was impossible. The collector would always be crooked. I tried half a dozen ways without success... I finally decided to reinstall it without the crush copper rings...
I am currently renovating my XRV 650 and I need new piston rings for it. Unfortunately I am having a very tough time finding a new set of these. The pistons are an oversize allready (I was told it was a 0.5 piston I measured the diameter, and it was 78.5 mm if this information has any...
Hello folks, me again :blob7::compress:
Does anybody maybe know the correct dimensions of the Dommie piston rings in STD setup?
(Inner diameter outer diameter and thickness of all three rings)
My bike already had a Remus Revolution muffler. Nice and light, but also perhaps a bit too noisey even with the db killer. Seeing that the DR 650 crowd seemed to have experimented with GSXR / Hayabusa muffler with great success, I decided to to try something. Fit a Suzuki SV1000 muffler on my...
