    Cool thanks for the pics.

    Mine was my second bike back in the early eighties.
    Bought it off a friend who had found it burnt up on side of the road.
    Had a DG pipe that stayed to the right side rather than the stock bend and the shock had been rebuilt by white brothers.

    When my friend and his dad rebuilt the motor, they forgot the spacers that go in the cooling fins and the thing really made some noise. Like a ringing beyond the exhaust.

    Years later they figured that out when someone else in our group had the bike.

    Great memories, loved that bike.

    Yep! I've experienced that equation myself. Expensive lesson.

    I did the work myself. I think when it happened it was something like $60 for two new pistons with dykes rings. the bike only had 4,500 miles on it when it happened in 1993 so the cylinders only needed a light honing.

    Mine was missing the mid pipe and muffler. Had Bill's Pipe in Corona fab that up for me.

    I had posted my contribution back on page 3/post #39.

    Wanna see the piston that came out of it about 20-25 miles after that event?

    It was running great... Until it stopped suddenly.

    It had four partial seizures during the True Grits rally, but all resolved after a minute or two to cool down. Then I had it out on a nice easy ride of about 20 miles around the Island here when it said, "That's it. I'm done."

    I've had several other 2-smokes, and this is the only one I cooked the piston in. After a cylinder rebore and new piston fitted by Team Calamari Racing it was better than ever. Had to sell it to make room for other new bike purchases, though :cry

    Remember the old saying. "These bikes always run best right before they blow up"... or sieze..

    Hell,
    That piston looks good compared to this. This came out of the RZ350 project bike I bought a year and a half ago.

    I still have my first motorcycle. A 1968 T305 Suzuki. The engine is being pulled for rebuild. After its done, I will attempt to post its picture.
