What is your opinion on this con rod?

Recommended Posts

Picked up this 2013 200 exc 2 weeks ago, put about 4 hours on it. Engine was always a bit noisy but I thought it was the exhaust and typical 2t being noisy. 
Was riding with a friend today who noted the noise so I thought I would look up the exhaust port as the bike was running great. I saw a bit of blow by on the piston so decided to change the piston. 

 

The piston is a wossner size A. Approx 70 hours use (I have only put 4 hours on the bike, going by what prev owner said). 

Crank has ZERO up and down play but has a lot of side to side that I'm not sure is normal.

I have attached pics of piston and barrel

Yeah that piston is stuffed - alot of blow by there - and your cylinder will need re-plating / re-sleeving.

seems like too much play there on the rod to me   :excuseme:

My 03 250SX is exactly like that. Very loose side to side. No up & down play. BUT, seeing how mine is an '03 can I really trust it? NO. So I'll be sending it out to get rebuilt. Pay now or pay for it later. Piston is way overdue.
