Top End Question - KDX 220

Recommended Posts

Guys,

I'm putting a Wiseco in my boys 2001 KDX 220 this weekend. Usually, after a job like this, I have a pucker factor that fades with time. If one of the circlips is going to give you trouble, or if it's going to be fine, how long do I need to stay puckered?

Anyone have any experience here?

Thanks,

Winkel

Just make sure they are seated in their grooves and are clocked at 6:00 or 12:00.

No PF what so ever.

I just replaced the piston in my 220 and I don't recall the 6 or 12 o'clock thing! Should I pucker?

If you don't put it at 6 or 12 there is always the possibility that the inertia from changing directions at either the top or bottom of the stroke could close the gap and allow the circlip to dislodge. I've never had it happen myself, but there are stories out there.

I've heard the same thing about the 6 or 12 thing. Of the entire job, the damned circlips are the only aspect that I will really respect. Other than that, I don't expect the whole thing to take more than a couple of hours.
