    Need trade in advice. Trading in a bike for the next year.

    Unless you wreck it first day. Then it's "practically new hardly ridden"

    What's the metal particles?

    No wear at all on the Piston. I agree, at this point, this far torn down I might as well change all of it.

    Added info...after I shimmed this summer the clearances were .010 on both exhaust valves and .006 , and .007 on intakes...after riding this fall the exhaust hasn't budged, still .010 for both. Intake barely tightened up to .005 and .006. The piston cleaned up good and the ring end Gap is .008 which is about perfect.

    I pulled the Piston and cleaned it and it has zero damage. The cylinder is perfect as well. I think you're right. Just the weird crystallization.
  6. 2016 kx250f... Valve job with SS valves, new piston and rings, big 2.9g gas tank, hopefully a suspension revalve also.

    I'll probably have the wife and kids, 11yo 8 yo. Gonna try to set up my enclosed trailer to at least make it comfy to hang out in. It's a 7x17 inline sled trailer.

    Good point. I was thinking how the heck would oil be getting in there. Seals hadn't crossed my mind yet.

    Piston looks ugly. Valves were still in perfect spec. Cylinder is spotless.

    We ride alot if sand here in michigan. I bought it used with unknown hrs. Got it from a dealer on consignment so they couldn't answer alot of questions. The bike had a full tank of "race gas" in it when I bought it. Wasn't sure if previous owner did mapping of any sort or just liked the high octane gas. I ran 93 all summer. Bike ran fine all season then one day wouldn't start. Zero clearance on 1 intake valve. I shimmed them and it fired up good after that. Only rode about 4-5 hrs since. Figured I'd get a valve job and new valves over winter. Maybe a piston and rings too now. I only ride trails.

    Well...that's why I'm tearing it down. About to take the head off in an hour or so.

    I didn't see it as too much out the ordinary. Just black discoloration from exhaust.

    Ports are dry. No oil build up. Just typical black soot
