Circlip Help for an Athena Big Bore

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install an Athena big bore kit on a 2002 DRZ400e. I'm installing the new piston, and i'm having trouble getting one of the circlips to fully seat. To me it seems/looks like the piston pin is slightly to long, stopping the clip.

Any ideas or help?

Maybe your piston pin is not in correct position. I had no such problem when installing my Athena.

The clip fits fine with out the pin. Which ever side i start with, the other side wont fit correctly.

The pin is as tight against the other side as i dare. You can feel it hit the clip.
