    Hey guys, I have a nasty rattle in the "drivers side" of the engine of my 1971 kawi H1. When I pulled the top off, the piston had a fair amount of radial play in the bore. I could rotate it by hand either direction a degree or so, maybe even more. I assume this is the wrist pin, although it could be the needle bearing too.

    As far as stock parts, do the wiseco bearings and pins I see on ebay fit the stock rods and pistons? Or would I need to find a kawasaki genuine part? Is there a good place to go for these things?

    Thanks guys, I've been trying to source parts for a while (took me 8 months to find a distributor cap. sigh.)
