Dropped her skirt tonight!

Recommended Posts

Hahaha! Had a problem with my 125 tonight.Lost the skirt on the exhaust side.

After looking at it the intake side wasnt far behind.Looks like I' going to have to split it to get the chunks out of the bottom?First time to have a skirt let go.You think I should split it and put new bearings in it now and be safe?I would hate to find out that I didnt get all of the chunks out of the bottom as well.Heres the pic of her skirt dropped.

its usually best to split the case after a failure like that, to not split the case would be a gamble imo.

what type of piston was it......

wait for it....

If you are waiting for the wiesico haters it won't happen becuase a forged pistion won't fall apart like that it will be the OEM and the cheap aftermarket cast pistions that will fail if the have to many hours on them :thumbsup:

@OP at the very least you need to split the cases and replace the crank bearings and the big end bearing

Well there are more cases of bud in the shop those are all gone !!! It was stock piston. Should have changed it but one of those deals where it made good power so thought I could make it till late in the season.Turns out it should have been done sooner !! If it was a wiseco it prolly wouldnt have done that .Good news is that in didnt hurt the jug or the head.

I knew the title would help my post on for one day and 151 visits for one post hahaha well she did drop her skirt !!!! :thumbsup:

Deff split the cases, my yz 250 dropped a stock piston skirt at like 20 hrs of hard track riding and I was going to take the gamble, I spent so much time doing all the tricks to get the pieces out and finally said screw it I ordered my parts to do the full bottom and top, split the cases an there were still small pieces in-between the main bearings and the seals that would have never been "cleaned out" with any trick
