XR oil farkles!

Check out what i found in my BRP oil tonight!



nice oil farkle heh?

bike runs great. I'm thinking that it's to hold the piston pin in place. looks about like that part. did the rings fall of 2010 and the bike doesn't burn oil, so i don't think the piston pin has slid out of place to eat the cylinder.

when the new rings went in it was not I that place the piston pin holder ring, but rather ninja mechanics so it may be something else, but that's the only part that comes to mind having done xr top ends only three times.

thotz? I'm thinking the big trip next weekend might be better to do on the xr400 (for sale, in theory) since i don't have an evening to tear the BRP down by then. The 650 runs like a champ, so i'd hate to leave it. Would the pin slip and eat the cylinder? Anyone have time to rebuild it before the weekend trading for organic farm eggs and the opportunity to walk my gorgeous german shephard???

Bummer dude. I wouldn't ride it till you find where it goes. What day are you done with your day job?? I can probably leave whenever and bomb it south. Yo. I better throw on the mondo tank for some mondo moto action.

BTW I'm using Utards to work out these details so some other bitches will get jealous and decide to come along. Can I still say bitches on Utards??? Anyway.........don't be a bitch........ride with Kev and Ry or you will be banned.

Certainly looks like a piston circlip. How would it get down the cylinder wall?

Good point. Maybe it's the old one and got dropped during surgery and just finally found the magnet.

Wait........wouldn't it just drop????

If you mean a hitch hauler, the receiver hitch that is a single bike rail I have one
you're welcome to use.

Looking at that photo..... you're screwed. The pin now can slide over and start
making the cylinder unhappy. It certainly looks like a wristpin clip that has popped
out and dropped down. Bummer.

Looks too small for a piston clip, especially on a BRP. Engines have all sorts of clips that keep gears from moving around, but typically there is a shouldered part that hooks the clip. I'd get out the microfiche and start looking. I bet you'll find another, smaller clip than the piston clip.

Who cares. You rode that bike 2,000 miles with the cam chain slapping against the side of the engine. It's like Pilo's KTM 950, rode the thing 200 miles with a bearing removed from the clutch. Plus, with the frequency that you change the oil, that thing has probably been sitting there for the past 1000+ miles;)

I'm with Pilo here... Looks too small to be a piston clip. I bet the piston clip is closer to 3/4 inch in diameter.
Good luck finding where it came from.

That must have been some ride if Ryman's nipple ring ended up in your sump.
