    yz125 piston destroyed again

    are you running the spacer for the spark plug that came from Pro Circuit? When they do the head on a Yamaha you have to run the spacer or the plug will be to close to the piston.

    Proper Break-In (YZ125)

    there is nothing to break in, all you are trying do to is to get the ring to seat, best way is to not break it in, just run it, I have not broke in an engine in over 20 years and have never had one fail.

    Chain adjuster lock nut frozen

    on the bottom of the swingarm is a hole, spray some lube on the bolt thru that hole. When you put it back put some good waterproof grease on the threads

    OEM piston

    actually as more time is put on a piston the skirt will collapse, if you measure at the same points before you put it in then after you take it out you will see the difference. On the 250 that is why the intake side of the piston cracks where the port is, from the time you start it, it is going down hill from there

    OEM piston

    when you put it together it is race ready, I have broke an engine in since 1980, with 0 failures, trust me on this the factories don't break motors in either, they buld them then race them. They are at the best when new.

    I would not run one that bent, as you can see 2 rows of cooling fins are closed off
