    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.

    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?

    I admit I'm a little rusty at this anymore. Looking at the piston Ryman posted the way it
    comes in at the wristpin casting a clip could just drop straight down into the crank case.

    Does someone have a 650 piston to measure the clip hole size? That does look small for a
    650.:dunno

    I think it looks like the oil pump thing. I'm going to go home and look, cuz I'd really prefer to take the 650 on this trip!

    You are old. Or, older than me at least.

    But you can still out-ride people half your age.

    I'm trying to plan an afternoon ride with Pilo in a week or two if you're interested . . .

    Kev I also have my little lightweight trailer if need be too. I have to pay it forward from borrowing MSH and pluric's trailers before I had mine. Tows behind my Volvo at 80 w no real loss of mileage so it would tow behind anything just fine I think...

    It's not the circlip in the oil pump... That one is in there. I (not that) recently did clutch plates. maybe something in there? I'll go fishing.
