wiseco piston has 29.9 hours on it

Recommended Posts

Depends on what it looks like and what the cylinder looks like. Are you having problems or just replacing the rings as scheduled/preventative maintenance? If it was my broke ass and the piston and jug looked good then yeah just rings.

everything looks great. bike was burning a lot of oil on start up so im gonna have the valve stem seals replaced. Didnt know how many hours wiseco pistons are good for.

Do a leak down test that will tell you if rings or valve seals are bad. Sometimes you can hear their escaping and that could help you determine from where
