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

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

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???
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.

This past weekend there was a pretty good Utah crew that made the trek to Cascade Montana (north of Helena) for the Ought Six Enduro. This is a 2-day ISDE format enduro, much like Idaho City. This was my first year attending and it was awesome. I will be back. The time schedule and entire atmosphere is considerably more relaxed than Idaho City, but there are some real quality trails on this private ranch. The Utah Boys represented well. Greg Gillian (multi-time ISDE participant who now lives in Utah) was 3rd overall AA rider after Day 1. Brady Elton was 5th, Shawn Strong 7th, and Rich Black 9th. Day 2 had Brady Elton and Josh Knight finishing in the top 10.

We really really need to get some Enduros in Utah. They are so much fun....basically a fast trail ride with 9 race-pace motos (timed special tests) thrown in the middle.

I looked through my manual and found nothing other than the piston circlips that look anything like it. I'm curious as to if the piston comes down far enough that the circlip could fall into the case. I'd think it'd have to since it was in good condition and the bike's not blowing smoke or burning oil.

Would the fiche have details that my manual doesn't have?
